Mason's translation is the most widely read of this classic tale of a hero-king and his doomed friend.



Book Synopsis



The most widely read and enduring interpretation of the classic Babylonian epic.

One of the oldest and most universal stories known in literature, the epic of Gilgamesh presents the grand, timeless themes of love and death, loss and reparations within the stirring tale of a hero-king and his doomed friend. A finalist for the National Book Award, Herbert Mason's retelling is at once a triumph of scholarship, a masterpiece of style, and a labor of love that grew out of the poet's long affinity with the original.
