Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Buried Foundation of the Gilgamesh Epic contains the table of contents, abbreviations that occur in the book and foreword. It also contains two tables that present details about early second-millennium Gilgamesh narrative and reconstructed relationships between early second-millennium Gilgamesh compositions. Based on contrasting characterization and narrative logic between the central Huwawa episode and the remaining material for the earliest Akkadian Gilgamesh, the book challenges the accepted notion that the famous epic was composed without recourse to a previous Akkadian narrative.

Keywords:Akkadian narrative; Gilgamesh compositions
