Go mobile with Gilgamesh! Watch, read, and learn about Gilgamesh, the oldest known masterpiece of world literature. This iBook is an introduction to this epic narrative and its world, and helps bridge the gap between the twenty-first century and 2800 BCE. Set down on clay tablets thousands of years ago, Gilgamesh compellingly presents the universal themes of friendship and competition, lust and love, enmity and reconciliation.

Introduction to World Literature: Gilgamesh includes: videos from the broadcast series Invitation to World Literature; a written introduction by Harvard professor David Damrosch; an excerpt from the first tablet of Gilgamesh; preferred translations of Gilgamesh; plus recommended books, films, plays, websites, and music inspired by this epic story.

Introduction to World Literature: Gilgamesh is presented by Annenberg Learner, a division of the Annenberg Foundation.
