DALLEY, S. Myths from Mesopotamia: Creation, the Flood, Gilgamesh, and Others. Rev. ed. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2009, 339 p. - ISBN 9780199538362.
The myths collected here include parallels with the biblical stories of the Creation and the Flood, and the famous Epic of Gilgamesh, the tale of a man of great strength, whose heroic quest for immortality is dashed through one moment of weakness. Recent developments in Akkadian grammar and lexicography mean that this new translation--complete with notes, a glossary of deities, place-names, and key terms, and illustrations of the mythical monsters featured in the text--will replace all other versions.
Stephanie M. Dalley is a Retired Research Fellow in Assyriology, Faculty of Oriental Studies at Oxford. From 1979 to 2007, she taught Akkadian and Sumerian at the Oriental Institute, Oxford University, UK.
