    Read & Download Poems of Heaven and Hell from Ancient Mesopotamia 104 Poems of Heaven and Hell from Ancient MesopotamiaTranslated by N K Sandars Poems of Heaven and Hell from Ancient Mesopotamia collects mythemes present in every culture a creation myth Enuma Elish a descent into Hell Inanna's and a tale about the first man Adapa that explains mankind's irrevocable mortalityEnuma Elish the most detailed and complex poem in the book tells of the creation of the world and subseuent civil strife among the elder gods over who will rule it essentially combining the patricidal cycles of Greek mythology with the tale of the defeat of Tiamat the Babylonian Typhon and her monstrous spawn This is essentially the Babylonian retelling of an old Sumerian creation myth with Marduk stealing the spotlight from the elder Sumerian gods and being hailed awes

    Read & Download Poems of Heaven and Hell from Ancient Mesopotamia 104 Poems of Heaven and Hell from Ancient Mesopotamiathe main creation story is sometimes entertaining but pretty silly and seems like just a political sort of work that puts babylon the city and one choice patron god at the top of everything maybe i'm missing incredibly elaborate stuff in it that makes it a transcendent work of art of course but the story of inanna is just fascinating it's a must read if you've any interest in these sorts of t'ings

    Read & Download Poems of Heaven and Hell from Ancient Mesopotamia 104 Poems of Heaven and Hell from Ancient MesopotamiaExcellent translation of Babylonian poetry including the Enuma elish and Inanna's descent into the underworld I think it's probably not uite literal and accurate so I wouldn't take it as the authoritative version; it's like one of those Bible translations that aims for readability and modern idiom over textual faithfulness But still it's a beautiful gateway to the fragmented wealth of Mesopotamian literatureWould've given it five stars except there are so many introductions and forewords and so on that tell you exactly what you're about to read in far detail than you'd find in the poems themselves You could put all that in annotations and it would be just fine Like geez guy get out of your own way and let me read

    Read & Download Poems of Heaven and Hell from Ancient Mesopotamia 104 Poems of Heaven and Hell from Ancient MesopotamiaIf you are thinking of reading the Creation Myths of Mesopotamia I would recommend the Alexander Heidel edition rather than this one Though N K Sandars is among the best of Assyriological authorities and makes a fine translation here as we'll her introduction the Heidel version guides the reader through the fragments and pre archaic verse in detailed section by section commentary Though I do appreciate Sandars intent of making a complete uninterrupted epic poem that is told by the original authors rather than herself

    Read & Download Poems of Heaven and Hell from Ancient Mesopotamia 104 Poems of Heaven and Hell from Ancient MesopotamiaReally excellent introduction though not an easy read to Akkadian and Sumerian answers to the larger uestions of life and death essential background to understanding something of how the Old Testament was put together all the mythological elements seem to be there Nancy Sandars has a finely tuned poetical feel for what these dusty old texts actually mean and how they continue to affect us today even if critically we've never read or even heard of them

    Read & Download Poems of Heaven and Hell from Ancient Mesopotamia 104 Poems of Heaven and Hell from Ancient MesopotamiaThough thousands of years separate from the modern day and translated into a very different language from the original there is still a raw poetry and lyricism in the words These are not the relatively refined passages of Gilgamesh but something with a different purpose These were written with purpose even if we're not precisely sure what those uses were A uick read but a definite must for fans of the period
