This is worth reading just because it is a major ancient epic. Clearly large portions of it have been lost over the eons. This particular edition does a great job of weaving together the many fragmented tablets that have been found and translated to create a mostly cohesive tale. As a casual reader, its fun, although this edition would be handy for a scholar as well, given its analysis of the separate tablets concerning this legend. Beyond that, Enkidu rocked. Everybody loves a wild man who becomes stately once he has a new haircut, drinks a bit and gets his mitts on some weapons!
