Back in the Saddle
In pre-Julian times, the calendar started in March. So for someone like myself who is more at home in the ancient world and think that CE refers to “Current Events,” this is as good a time as any to start this blog back up.
After too long a period of time, I’m trying to get back in the writing saddle. Teaching a 4/4 load with an additional summer course for several years has really eaten into my writing and research, but I need to get out some thoughts on Gilgamesh.
With new translations (and “translations”), new manuscripts, and new monographs circling about, my well-worn copies of George’s translation are feeling more and more out of dated. I’m hoping to post snipits of translation here on a weekly basis and get some feedback from the scholarly community (and layfolk as well).
