Gilgamesh - Page Text Content

BC: By: Rikki Bradley, Anna Colvin, and Aj Wright

FC: Ishtar, Gilgamesh, and the death of Enkidu

1: Ishtar asks Gilgamesh to marry her. He scornfully rejects and insults her. She goes to her father Anu and asks for the Bull of Heaven to destroy Gilgamesh. | He grants her this wish. Now there will be 7 years of drought.

2: Ishtar send the Bull of Heaven to Uruk. It snorts with rage. Enkidu jumps on it's back and cries out to Gilgamesh to slash it between the horns. Ishtar utters a curse to make Gilgamesh miserable. Enkidu hears her and jerks out the bull's right thigh and throws it at her face saying "If I could lay my hands on you, this is what I would do."

3: The brothers rest. Enkidu dreams that since the bull is dead, either he or Gilgamesh must die. Enkidu blames the harlot, a friend of Ishtar. Shamash explains to Enkidu that the harlot is innocent. Enkidu takes back the curse.

4: Enkidu has another dream that a bird man takes him to the Queen of Darkness to never return again. For twelve days, Enkidu stays in bed terribly sick.

5: "I will make this whole city weep for you!" Gilgamesh whispers as Enkidu dies. Gilgamesh summoned to the coppersmiths to have a statue made in Enkidu's name. The hurt ceased.
