1. Review the epic of Gilgamesh in your textbook.
2. Write a blurb, keeping in mind the instructions for writing a blurb: Writing a Literary Blurb.pdf
The blurb will include two parts (still only one page). The first half or paragraph one of the blurb will include information on the author(s), culture, and other historical facts about this literary period. You will use that information to associate with the epic of Gilgamesh. The second half or paragraph two of the blurb will focus on how the epic of Gilgamesh relates to the information relating to the culture and historical facts. Quote and cite specific passages. What seems to be the central theme?
Although this seems like a lot of information to include in a one-page blurb, the blurb must not exceed one page. One page is the minimum and the maximum requirement.
