Chapter Summary

This preliminary material presents the table of contents section of the book The World's Oldest Literature: Studies in Sumerian Belles-Lettres. Bibliographic references, acknowledgements, a preface and an introduction for the book are provided here. William Hallo's achievements in the field of Assyriology and the broader ancient Near East, of which the book gives ample and wide-ranging testimony, have roots early in his life. They began with the Hebrew Bible, and Jewish studies more generally, interest in which pervaded the home in Kassel, Germany, where he grew up until the family's forced departure in 1939 because of Nazi anti-Jewish pressure.

Keywords: Hebrew Bible; Jewish studies; Sumerian Belles-lettres; William Hallo; world's oldest literature
