GILGAMESH : Translated from the Sin-leqi-unninni Version by John Gardner and John Maier, with the assistance of Richard A. Henshaw. 304 pp. New York : Vintage Books, 1985 (1984). ISBN 0-394-740-89-0 (pb. The present book is the fruit of a collaboration between John Gardner, literary scholar and writer who was responsible for the translation, and John Maier, who wrote the 50-page Introduction, the extensive Notes, and the concluding Appendix. Overall, I would recommend this to any advanced reader who doesn't mind a few broken tablets. 4 people found this helpful.

Thus Tigay's book may be said to be a watershed in Gilgamesh studies. The Reader divides the essays into three sections.

Gilgamesh: A Reader is a selection of twenty-five essays on the ancient stories of the Mesopotamian hero Gilgamesh, primarily the stories written in cuneiform Akkadian known as Gilgamesh, The Epic of Gilgamesh or The Gilgamesh Epic. The selection is limited to essays in English that have appeared since the publication of Jeffrey H. Tigay's The Evolution of the Gilgamesh Epic in 1982. Thus Tigay's book may be said to be a watershed in Gilgamesh studies.
