He twitches like an ox as vermin bite him Because he never untied his wife's clothes, he is doomed to tie knots forever ZZII (G.) Did you see him who did not heed the words of his mother and father? From our first meeting with the young Gilgamesh he is characterized by tremendous vigor and energy. But Enkidu is headstrong and with unconscious impiety interprets every one of them to mean that they will overcome Huwawa. Whatever the reason, Sumerian poets of the Third Dynasty of Ur extolled the life and deeds of Gilgamesh, as well as those of his father, Lugalbanda, and composed narrative poems about them, which were enjoyed at the royal court. Before turning to the walls of Uruk, the poet-editor tells us two morc important things about Gilgamesh. The reader's attention is directed to one of Gilgamesh's most famous achievements, the great walls of Uruk and its renowned temple of the goddess Ishtar, "the like of which no king, no man, will ever build": Go up on the walls and walk about. (E.) He drinks water... but is never satiated. The eternal life you are seeking you shall not find. (E.) He eats bread hard as a kiln-baked brick. He said to his servant Enkidu: Come now, let us release the warrior. Also pertinent is the Mesopotamian view that among the mes, which constitute the norms of civilized life, are included sexual intercourse and prostit~tion.~ Relevant too is the fact that the prostitute in Mesopotamia, like the prostitute in ancient Israel, was a prime representative of urban life.4 Of special value in appreciating the mediating role of the harimtu are S. Ortner's comments, for she provides a frame of reference in understanding this function. 2. 46 [When Gilgamesh explains his quest, the scorpion monster asserts that no one can traverse the tunnel through mountains. When he loses his friend, Gilgamesh for the first time comprehends death in all its stark reality. Enkidu blocked the door to the wedding with his foot, Not allowing Gilgamesh to enter. Instead of your bringing on a flood, 195 Let famine rise up to wreak havoc in the land! Memory Verse. However, at the point of the seemingly total and irreversible failure of his quest, new hope is unexpectedly held out to Gilgamesh. Aghast, struck dumb, Ilis heart in a turmoil, his face drawn, With woe in his vitals, I Iis face like a traveler's from afar, 'I'he hunter made ready to speak, saying to his father: My father, there is a certain fellow who has come [from the uplands], He is the mightiest in the land, strength is his, Like the force of heaven, so mighty is his strength. When he had cursed the hunter to his heart's content, 65 He resolved to curse the harlot Shamhat: Come, Shamhat, I will ordain you a destiny, A destiny that will never end, forever and ever! (G.) How does he fare? When you stop for the night, dig a well, May there always be pure water in. Its origin must therefore be looked for in the Far East. 68 A fifth time Gilgamesh said to Huwawa: By the life of the mother who bore me, the goddess Ninsun, and my father, the divine pure Lugalbanda, Nobody knows where you dwell in the mountain land, People should know where you dwell in the mountain land.
