The Last Quest of Gilgamesh Viral Books Zeman ends the trilogy with a punch. Her terrifying illustrations influenced by Gustave Doré's images for the Divine Comedy truly haunt the reader and remind us of humanity's first envisionings of what is now a Judeo-Christian Hell. The clear and obvious precursor and connection to Hebrew Scriptures and the Christian Bible is evident when we learn Noah's ark and story is actually that of Utnapishtim, written at least 1000 years before the Noah tale. We also see Gilgamesh fail at his ultimate journey and lose all hope after a snake devours the plant that gives humanity immortality. And, to bring the message home as to how this ancient work of literature is still totally of today's time, Gilgamesh does find comfort knowing he built a wall around his city, and that act (a wall slaves and mistreated and exploited workers were forced to create in the beginning of this epic) will have history always remember his name. And, we have remembered his name, and parts of the wall are still standing in modern day Iraq...not to mention the megolomaniac's, Donald Trump, plans. The more I read and study this epic, the more drawn in to it I become. Also, Siduri, one of my favorite characters, makes her wonderful appearance in this part of the story; although, she is treated quickly and without deeper reflection or potential for analysis, which is very much present in Mason's translation.. In his final quest, Gilgamesh, still mourning the death of his dear friend Enkidu, sets out to find the key to immortality His journey is perilous He must fight ferocious serpents and wild lions He travels through bitterly cold caves, across scorching deserts, and over the fatal waters of the Sea of Death Finally he arrives at the palace of Utnapishtim, the only humanIn his final quest, Gilgamesh, still mourning the death of his dear friend Enkidu, sets out to find the key to immortality His journey is perilous He must fight ferocious serpents and wild lions He travels through bitterly cold caves, across scorching deserts, and over the fatal waters of the Sea of Death Finally he arrives at the palace of Utnapishtim, the only human who knows the secret of immortality Utnapishtim sets Gilgamesh a test to stay away for six days and seven nights, but Gilgamesh fails His last hope, a flower of eternal youth, is eaten by the goddess Ishtar, who exacts her revenge Finally, Enkidu comes from the underworld to show Gilgamesh true immortality the king will be remembered for his good deeds, courage, and love for his people.. The best Kindle The Last Quest of Gilgamesh Sometimes old mythology seems a bit like a kid telling a story, incorporating ridiculous elements as they occur to them. Also, though the themes are supposed to be universal, I have a hard time relating to the motives of many characters.

  3. This third installment in Ludmila Zeman s adaptation of the Epic of Gilgamesh is probably the most scary Nonetheless, her engaging illustrations and commitment to the text and visual style of the ancient Mesopotamians make this an excellent resource for discussion with children.So many wonderful conversations developed from reading and discussing this book multiple times Concepts children will need help clarifying Is death scary What is the secret of immortality For whom was the garden of God cr [...]


  4. Another beautifully illustrated children s edition of the Epic of Gilgamesh, this time covering the last part of the main epic where Gilgamesh searches for immortality Several liberties were taken with the story here that I think were unnecessary blaming Ishtar for the loss of a special plant and the return of Enkidu come to mind , but I have to admit they tie the story in the three volume set together nicely in a way children will understand and appreciate particularly those like my son who dis [...]


  5. We totally loved this trilogy My kids spent hours looking at the pictures and asking me to re read them.Granted, it s a violent story so some of you may not want to read it to begin with But it s handled really nicely and isn t all gory and gross while still retaining the original themes.The art is done in the style of what has been found during that time which was another way to learn about the time period.I like to find children s books of classic adult books and have them read it when they re [...]


  6. I ve already known that the bible borrowed a lot of mythological motifs from the Gilgamesh myth, but seeing it in this picture book really drives that fact home We re looking deep in time back to the beginning of writing in the middle eastd into an oral tradition even older than that How old, I wonder The written myth is about 4,000 years old How much older is the oral story Anyhow, Zeman s Gilgamesh trilogy is a good way to introduce children to some of our most ancient myths and stories.


  7. This is the last book in the Gilgamesh Trilogy We read all three picture books as part of our lesson on Ancient Babylon and Ancient Mesopotamia My kids were fascinated by the stories and the illustrations We would definitely recommend reading all three books in the trilogy and lingering over all of the interesting and detailed illustrations that tell an additional story about living in the times of ancient Mesopotamia.


  8. Back Cover The Gilgamesh epic is one of the oldest and most important stories in the world In this dramatic final episode in the great tale, the powerful king Gilgamesh sets out on his last quest to find the secret of everlasting life.Me This was just right for JB in First Grade A wonderful first look at the story of Gilgamesh An aside Praise God we only have to say and spell Noah vs Utnapishtim.


  9. As the final book retelling Gilgamesh s saga, we see a side to our protagonist that the two prior books do not show us This was my favorite book in the trilogy Its themes are ones that all humans have to deal with in their lifetime If you have come this far, you have to finish the final piece of Gilgamesh s epic.


  10. King Gilgamesh will live in infamy, just as he greatly desired, due to the discovery of those old cuneiform tablets Ludmila Zeman did a wonderful job adapting and illustrating these oldest known myths This series of small picture books need to be read in order, and are really 1 tale.


  11. I bought this book as an addition to my middle school social studies class It is an AR book, and adds to the backstory of what we study in social studies It is an entertaining read and adds a lot to the classroom.


  12. When I was reading this book, it was a little confusing at first I didn t think i would ever understand it But as I kept reading, I started to understand it a little I got really into it and finished it in no time without any distractions.





  13. In his final quest, Gilgamesh, still mourning the death of his dear friend Enkidu, sets out to find the key to immortality He must fight serpents and wild lions.


  14. Final book in the trilogyings Gilgamesh through trials and long suffering with the theme of how to beat death The pictures could be looked at all day Great retelling
