The topic you will need to analyze about is:
” The Epic of Gilgamesh was written with the intention of reading it out loud. It was a text that was part of the oral tradition in ancient Mesopotamia. What are the signs of this in the text? What literary devices and style elements would have helped this text stick in listeners’ memories? Think about: repetition, symbolism, parallelism, using exclamations and drama language, and stating things simply, in a way that people could easily follow. Examine Gilgamesh for these things, and provide examples from the epic in your essay in order to show how Gilgamesh is designed to be heard out loud and memorized.”
NOT TO DO LIST:
Do not use any sources other than the actual story–do not use any material from websites about the Epic of Gilgamesh or Medea. Your paper must be your own original thought, not borrowed off a summary website or sample paper.
