Read from May 07 to 17, 2010

(Read a different version than pictiured above; from Penguin)

Historical background was interesting, but dated and likely had some cultural skew to it. Comparisons of the Deluge myth contained in these tales to Noah's version are interesting.

The Epic itself is ineteresting though much of it has been borrowed/remade/ has close paralleles in other cultures' mythology I've read before.

Probably better for a myth or history buff than most others.
