Gilgamesh, the warrior hero-king, and his friend Enkidu, a naked wild man who has been civilized through the erotic arts of a sexual priestess, set out on an agonizing, unforgettable mythic journey.  The most ancient text in the world, Gilgamesh remains a powerful reminder of the timeless relevance of love, courage, grief, and the search for meaning in life.
