Schillizzi 1 Matt Schillizzi Prof. Greenfield H Mosaics I 19 September 2010 Enkidu’s Envisioned Death At the beginning of Tablet VII in The Epic of Gilgamesh , there seems to be a lacuna in which about thirty-five lines are missing. At this point in the story, Gilgamesh and his close companion, Enkidu, have returned to Uruk to slay the Bull of Heaven after already having slain Humbaba. The following lines provide a possibility for the lines that were lost. At night the men lay asleep on their beds, And Enkidu as he slept was having a dream. Enkidu rose to relate the dream, Saying to his friend: “My friend, why were the great gods in counsel? There they met, deliberating my actions, Deciding my fate, choosing which to save, Punishing me for obeying masters. “Why is it that I am torn between gods; Living to please them, as well as you, And be betrayed over a dispute between non- communicative dictators? I’m in a doorway being pulled from both sides.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
