WHY BOOK IV OF THE EPIC OF GILGAMESH IS THE WORST
Mitchell's version. I get that it's stylistic and probably true to the original epic, but SO repetitive.
- •We get it, Gilgamesh, you had a dream
- •Yes, you thought it was bad
- •But it actually wasn't
- •Enkidu didn't touch you
- •Nothing happened
- •The dream is a good sign
- •We get itWe don't really need the same description of Gilgamesh traveling 400 miles, and then 1000. We know about his dreams. We don't really need the same passage almost word for word five times.
