The Enuma Elish is one of the oldest stories known to mankind. Eish is a story first written down by the ancient Sumerians thousands of years ago. King provides us with a qualified translation of the tables which were originally written in cuneiform script. The Enuma Elish is receiving renewed interest from modern researchers delving into the origins of mankind, the earth, and the solar system.

Over the centuries a copy ended up in the library at Nineveh in the 7th century B.

ENUMA ELISH – The Epic Of Creation

Written to cuneiform text and preserved on seven clay tables, the entire story was called “The Seven Tablets of Creation. The Seven Tablets of Creation have had many profound implications since they were first discovered and subsequently published. They predate many parts of the Book of Genesis as well as other worldwide creation myths. Volume One includes this epic poem’s English translation. It also includes information on parallels in Hebrew literature, lkbro date and origin of the Babylonian creation legends, and more.


Volume Two includes other accounts of creation, an Assyrian “Tower of Babel” story, and supplementary texts showing the actual cuneiform tablets. Ver todas las apps de lectura gratuitas de Kindle.

Lbiro del producto Tapa blanda: One might think, looking at the publishing date and the publisher’s description that King’s translation is among the most recent. If so, one will be sorely disapointed upon reading this book.

This is a reprint of King’s translation of the Enuma Elish, the Assyro-Babylonian creation myth. In the intervening years, additional copies of the text have been discovered, filling in most of the gaps found in King’s translation and correcting his tenative translations of lines that in his day were only partially known.

If you are looking for a more complete more updated translation, you’d be much better served with Stephanie Dalley’s work, Myths from Mesopotamia, where you’d also get translations of several other Akkadian language myths.

Further off-putting is the one page preface by Paul Tice, which spends more space endorsing the rather questionable theories of Zecharia Sitchin than it does addressing the contents of King’s book. There are some useful features in this book though. More than half of the Enuma Elish that King worked with was complete and rlish translation is presented in parallel with a transliteration of the original Akkadian.


There are included additional scholarly essays by King on varying subjects related to the creation story including parallels with Genesis. Some of these essays, are hampered by the lack of available knowledge at the time and for significant portions of them King must make speculations which are no longer justified.

Ninety-eight years ago, this must have been one of the more thorough, cutting-edge works on the subject, but so much more has been learned in the mean-time, enma I would only recommend this work to those who leish have more recent translations of the Enuma Elish.
