Written in ancient Mesopotamia in the second millennium B. Bored they decide to go kill this other guy who lives in the woods, he's a tough guy too, but he really likes the woods, and feels pain when trees are cut down and then gets really angry.

Far more remarkable are the similarities. George: They stood there marvelling at the forest, gazing at the lofty cedars, gazing at forest's entrance — where Humbaba came and went there was a track.

Enkidu who is shacking up with a harlot hey, it's monogamous! He built a shelter for the night, placed Gilgamesh on the floor and spread a magic circle of flour around him, then sprawled like a net across the doorway. ملحمة خالدة، اعتبرتها مصالحة من مجلة الدوحة بعد العدد الأخير الذي كان به رواية.
