Gilgamesh -- A New English Translation by Stephen Mitchell

I recently borrowed the audiobook version of Gilgamesh -- A New English Translation by Stephen Mitchell from our local library. I was somewhat familiar with the story, but had never actually read, or in this case heard, the whole thing before. It was written about 1700 BC, but only discovered in modern times in 1853. It is accompanied by an essay about the story by Mr. Mitchell. It is definitely not kid friendly.
