    Bringing new life to the world’s oldest story, Yusef Komunyakaa and Chad Gracia have refashioned a classic Sumerian legend into a compelling verse play.

This new version elaborates on the key themes of the story and weaves them into a vibrant and emotional new form. Wesleyan’s edition of Gilgamesh is like no other and will take its place among the most powerful and engaging interpretations of this timeless tale.
