Teaser Tuesday: Epic of Gilgamesh


Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

“My friend, I have had the fourth,

      it surpasses my other three dreams!

I saw a Thunderbird in the sky,

     up it rose like a cloud, soaring above us.” (pg35)

Epic of Gilgamesh which I am reading for The Really Old Classics Challenge

Are you loving it?! I read the Stephen Mitchell translation, and I totally want to learn large chunks of it by heart I loved it so much. :)

I really want to read it too, but I'm not sure I'll get to in the next two months :(
