Gilgamesh: the Hero-y King

FALL, 2019 |

King Gilgamesh thinks he’s the gods’ gift to Uruk. And he has a point, since he’s half god and half man. He’s handsome (shiny!), he’s strong (hero-y!), and he likes to tell his people what to do (bossy!). But Gilgamesh is driving the people of Uruk crazy. So the gods send Enkidu, a wild man who lives in the forest, to fight Gilgamesh and show the shiny, hero-y, bossy young king what it really means to be a great leader. And although Gilgamesh and Enkidu start off as enemies, they need to figure out how to work together when a monster comes from the forest to destroy them and everyone else in Uruk.
