776 words - 3 pages

The Gods Had To Punish GilgameshGilgamesh is one of the oldest literary works in the world. The story of Gilgamesh was originally found on twelve stone tablets. In the story, the acts of Gilgamesh do not please the men of Uruk so they complain to the gods that, " A goddess made him, strong as a savage bull, none can withstand his arms. No son is left with his father, for Gilgamesh takes them all; and is this the king, the shepherd of his people? His lust leaves no virgin to her lover, neither the warrior's daughter nor the wife of the noble" (Gilgamesh, 13). So the gods cried out to Aruru, the goddess or creation. Eventually Aruru created Enkidu to help Gilgamesh become a better ruler. Once Enkidu and Gilgamesh meet they embraced each other and created an everlasting friendship.

This is the strong comrade, the one who brings help to his friend in his need. He is the strongest of wild creatures, the stuff on Anu; born in the grass-lands and the wild hill reared him; when you see him you will be glad; you will love him as a woman and he will never forsake you. This is the meaning of the dream" (Gilgamesh, 16). This quote states that Ninsun was aware of the coming of Enkidu, therefore she did have the ability to predict the future. If Ninsun was a goddess and she was able to predict the future that proves that all the gods and...
