When Heroes Love - The Ambiguity of Eros in the Stories of Gilgamesh and David

When Heroes Love - The Ambiguity of Eros in the Stories of Gilgamesh and David The Ambiguity of Eros in the Stories of Gilgamesh and David ACKERMAN, Susan

Toward the end of the Mesopotamian Epic of Gilgamesh King, Gilgamesh laments the untimely death of his comrade Enkidu, 'my friend whom I loved dearly'. This book examines the stories' sexual and homoerotic language and suggests that its ambiguity provides fresh ways of understanding ideas of gender and sexuality in the ancient Near East.
