Product Details

Praise

"[Gilgamesh] has never been better served than in this new translation…Maier’s contribution is the meticulous scholarship that envelopes the book…John Gardner’s contribution…is the translation itself: lyrical, sinewy, emotionally uncompromising and rhythmically brilliant."

— William L. Moran, The New York Times Book Review

"The authors brilliantly achieve the goal of infusing the poem with new life and meaning for the modern reader"

— Ronald Bailey, Newsday

"A moving and exceptionally readable version of the poem."

— Aaron Shurin, The San Francisco Chronicle
