Chapter Summary

This bibliography section contains the list of reference books and articles that occur in this book titled The Buried Foundation of the Gilgamesh Epic. The Epic of Gilgamesh is best known from its first-millennium rendition, the Standard Babylonian Version, a sequence of twelve tablets that detail the adventures of Gilgamesh, king of the Sumerian city of Uruk. The epic appears to have been composed in the early second millennium, however, and so the Old Babylonian (OB) period must be the focus of any exploration of its origins. The book identifies and interprets the Akkadian Huwawa narrative for the first time on its own terms. In the process, it aims to calculate the relationship of this first Akkadian Gilgamesh tale both to its new epic offspring and to its Sumerian predecessor.
