The Epic of Gilgamesh is often regarded as the earliest surviving work of literature. The poem chronicles the immensely powerful, yet equally cruel warrior-king of the Mesopotamian city-state of “great-walled Uruk” as he persecutes his people, finds friendship, bolsters his pride, shames the gods, and seeks redemption. How can the themes and lessons of The Epic of Gilgamesh apply to 21st century America? Join us as we explore what we can learn from history’s first “hero” (and what’s best left in the past).
