Translated by: Andrew George 1999 Fiction Rating: 3.5/5 I was so curious to read the infamous Epic of Gilgamesh. I mean, come on. This poem was written down something like 6000 years ago. Yeah. 6000.
I’ve known rivers: I’ve known rivers ancient as the world and older than the flow of human blood in human veins. My soul has grown deep like the rivers. –“The Negro Speaks of Rivers” by Langston Hughes
