He Who Saw The Deep A Hymn to Survival The Gilgamesh epic is one of the great masterpieces of world literature One of the early translations so inspired the poet Rainer Maria Rilke in 1916 that he became almost intoxicated with pleasure and wonder and repeated the story to all he met Gilgamesh he declared is stupendous For him the epic was first and foremost das Epos der Todesfurcht the epic about the fear of deathThis universal theme does indeed tie together the various strands of the epic poem it tells of one man s heroic struggle against death for eternal life first through immortal renown through glorious deeds then for eternal life itself It then goes on to describe of his despair when confronted with the inevitable failure and of his eventual realization that the only immortality he may expect is the enduring name afforded by leaving behind some lasting achievementThe epic is also a work from which one is expected to learn from the poet enjoins us in the prologue to read about the travails of Gilgamesh all that he went through The lesson is that maturity is gained as much through failure as success Life of necessity is hard but one is the wiser for it Thus it is also a story of one man s path to wisdom of how he is formed by his successes and failuresIt also deals with profound debates on the proper duties of kingship what a good king should do and should not do in the end Uta napishti s lesson to Gilgamesh is of the duties of kings and discourses on the inevitability of death and the fleeting nature of lifeThe wisdom he received at the ends of the earth from the survivor of the Deluge Uta napishti enabled Gilgamesh to restore civilization to its earlier splendor The uest has taught Gilgamesh how to build his city back to its antediluvian glory The Flood A Hymn to Survival Through Uta napishti the epic also artfully weaves into Gilgamesh s own story the traditional tale of the Deluge the great flood that permeates most ancient mythsHere Gilgamesh brings home an important meaning of the ever present flood myth It allows us to see that the conuering of death is impossible but that preserving of life and culture and civilization ancient myths like to personify entire civilizations in its heroes is the most important challenge And it is achievableGilgamesh has always been thought of as a life affirming epic that asks us to live life and abandon the uest for avoiding death But look once again at the advice of the flood surviver Uta napishti O man of Shuruppak son of Ubar Tutudemolish the house and build a boatAbandon wealth and seek survival Spurn property save lifeTake on board the boat all living things seed No one at all sees Deathno one at all sees the face of Deathno one at all hears the voice of DeathDeath so savage

mayfly floating on the waterOn the face of the sun its countenance gazesthen all of a sudden nothing is there Gilgamesh does not ask human kind to avoid the fruitless uest It was in fact his uest for the unreachable that allowed Gilgamesh to find his way to find himself and to restore lifecivilization The uest is as unavoidable as Enkidu s death that prompted itAs long as Enkidus die Gilgameshs will try to soar beyond human capacity This is the cause for great hope Gilgamesh celebrates an hopeful view that even mighty floods and decay cannot completely wipe out human civilization It comes mighty close and it takes a wise king like Gilgamesh but it is possible to overcome to prevail That is the hope that Gilgamesh holds out to usPost Script A Damaged MasterpieceThis edition is probably the most comprehensive and scholarly version of the epic yet published It is not dumbed down for the general audience and is not easy reading The translator has opted for the integrity of the text over the ease of the reader The text presented in this translation is fragmentary at best and could be frustrating for the reader It takes patience and imagination from the reader to work through passages such as this indicate missing text In spite of all the difficulties it is worth persevering For this translation is definitely rewarding than the freer translations such as Stephen Mitchell s However a cautionary note for the reader from the translator While there is a temptation for a modern editor to ignore the gaps to gloss them over or to join up disconnected fragments of text I believe that no adult reader is well served by such a procedure The gaps are themselves important in number and size for they remind us how much is still to be learned of the text They prevent us from assuming that we have Gilgamesh entire Whatever we say about the epic is provisional for new discoveries of text may change our interpretation of whole passages Nevertheless the epic we have now is considerably fuller than that which fired the imagination of Rilke Approach what lies ahead not as you might the poems of Homer but as a book part eaten by termites or a scroll half consumed by fire
