King Gilgamesh lived c. 2800 BCE in Mesopotamia; the earliest version of his epic dates from a thousand years before Homer. It deals with the earliest stages of human history: how do human beings relate to animals, the environment, the city, agriculture, sexuality, and the world of gods and goddesses?
