Question 1: Having read  Andrew George’s introduction to Gilgamesh (from xxxi – li), what especially strikes you about what you learn there concerning this ancient work?

Question 2: Having viewed the five minute video,”I am Ashurbanipal,” concerning  a 2018 British Museum exhibit of the palace decoration of the seventh century BCE Assyrian king, what most vividly conveys the power and might of the Assyrian king (in whose library the “standard version” of The Epic of Gilgamesh was found)?
