Useful Videos for The Epic of Gilgamesh

Sometimes summaries are just plain useful. So. Here are two summaries/commentaries on Epic of Gilgamesh - and one (fun?) video with the epic sung in Sumerian.

Please note that both of the videos give you more of the story than the assigned readings for class. Ideally this gives you a sense of how our excerpts fit into the whole story.

And, as usual, if anything from these videos or other web resources makes its way into your Pre-Class Response - remember to cite it. :)

If you have other resources you found useful, feel free to share in the comments or post on your blogs!
