"It is widely recognised that the epics of Homer are closely related to the earlier mythology and literature of the ancient Near East, above all the Babylonian Epic of Gilgamesh. But how should this influence our response to the meaning and message of either poem? This book addresses this question through an experiment in intertextual reading"--
