Gilgamesh Redux

a poetic cycle

Authored by John David Ebert

Gilgamesh Redux is a retelling of the ancient Babylonian epic in modern contemporary poetic idiom. The tale of one man's quest to defeat mortality has been rendered in a surrealistic poetic style that is evocative of the literary styles of such contemporary writers as Jose Saramago, Cormac McCarthy or William Burroughs. It is a fantastic journey through the crumbling ancient land of an archaic Mesopotamia. The tales of the forebears of Gilgamesh--those of his father Lugalbanda and his grandfather Enmerkar--have also been included in order to tell the epic history of the rise and fall of the solar dynasty of the city of ancient Uruk.
