Storyboard Text

  • Legendary Hero
  • "I am Gilgamesh, King of Uruk."
  • Supernatural Involvement
  • "Why are the humans so loud?"
  • Various Settings
  • Gilgamesh is famous throughout the city of Uruk, for he is believed to be more stong and beautiful than any other man.
  • Superhuman Strength
  • The Mesopotamian Gods and Goddesses impact the story because their actions can help (Shamash) or hurt (Ishtar) Gilgamesh along his journey. Their interaction makes the overall plot more epic.
  • Epic Style of Writing
  • "May the pasture lands shriek in mourning as if it were your mother..."
  • Gilgamesh and Enkidu travel to the cedar forest, a place most people would never travel. The variety of settings makes the hero seem even greater and gives readers more interesting details.
  • Omniscient Narraration
  • Gilgamesh is 2/3 god, so he is much stronger than the average man. This enables him to kill Humbaba and The Bull of Heaven as well as embark on very dangerous journies most would not take.
  • Throughout the text, there is a lot of repetition. This is mainly due to the story being told aloud, not written. Also, there are aspects of epic similes, metaphors, and epithets. Emotions were also commonly dramatized.
  • During The Epic of Gilgamesh, 3rd person omniscient narration is used to show everything that takes place in the story. This point of view allows Gilgamesh to seem more godly, for we know what everyone around him is experiencing.
