There seems to be a great deal of activity regarding Gilgamesh lately. In the past couple of days, my old postings on Gilgamesh, mostly this one, have received more than typical hits. None of them are referred from a single source, but are all google searches.
Is there something recent in the news that might explain a spike in interest in Gilgamesh?
On a similar subject, I have been thinking about writing a post laying out the similarities I have seen between the Epic of Gilgamesh and Ecclesiastes, but that must await another day.
