Mitchell, who has provided modern readers with lucid and poetic understandings of the Bhagavad Gita, the Tao Te Ching, and the Bible, breathes new life into what he claims is the world's oldest story. THE EPIC OF GILGAMESH, composed in Sumeria a thousand years before THE ILIAD, tells the story of the great king of Uruk, whose experiences with pride, friendship, and mortality still resonate today. The first half of this audiobook production contains George Guidall's ageless storytelling as he narrates Mitchell's translation. The second half, read by John McDonough, is Mitchell's in-depth analysis of the archaeological and literary importance of the Gilgamesh epic. S.E.S.
