Gilgamesh translated from the Sīn-leqi-unninnī version ( file )
1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 19 libraries worldwide
The story of Gilgamesh, an ancient epic poem written on clay tablets in a cuneiform alphabet, is as fascinating and moving as it is crucial to our ability to fathom the time and the place in which it was written. Gardner's version restores the poetry of the text and the lyricism that is lost in the earlier, almost scientific renderings. The principal theme of the poem is a familiar one: man's persistent and hopeless quest for immortality. It tells of the heroic exploits of an ancient ruler of the walled city of Uruk named Gilgamesh. Included in its story is an account of the Flood that predates the Biblical version by centuries. Gilgamesh and his companion, a wild man of the woods named Enkidu, fight monsters and demonic powers in search of honor and lasting fame. When Enkidu is put to death by the vengeful goddess Ishtar, Gilgamesh travels to the underworld to find an answer to his grief and confront the question of mortality

Gardner says that good fiction is moral fiction. He discusses the merits of "unrealistic" over realistic novels, and says that plot and setting exist only to develop and feed character. Gardner discusses the problems of existentialism and asserts the primacy of history in shaping our lives. He talks about metafiction as being fiction that the reader is conscious of as fiction. Gardner also talks at length about Beowulf and The Canterbury Tales
