    1. If I fall, I will establish my name. Gish, the corpse(?) of Huwawa, the terrible one, has snatched (?) from the time that My offspring was born in ...... The lion restrained (?) thee, all of which thou knowest. ........................ .............. thee and ................ open (?) ........ like a shepherd(?) ..... [When thou callest to me], thou afflictest my heart.

      I am completely lost in this passage, what is supposed to be happening?

    2. Strong(?) ... Gish Against him [Enkidu proceeded], [His hair] luxuriant. He started [to go]

      I am not following what is happening in these lines, i know lines are missing but i feel as if they could have done something here.

    3. "[To have (?)] a family home Is the destiny of men, and The prerogative(?) of the nobles. For the city(?) load the workbaskets! Food supply for the city lay to one side! For the King of Erech of the plazas, Open the hymen(?), perform the marriage act!

      I believe Gilgamesh has this dialogue with Enkidu, but i am not too sure as to why this is happening.

    4. His spirit was loosened, he became hilarious. His heart became glad and His face shone. [The barber(?)] removed The hair on his body. He was anointed with oil.

      I realize here is saying what is happening to him but the translation isn't as clear as it should be.

    5. Furthermore, our investigation has shown that to Enkidu belongs the episode with the woman, used to illustrate the evolution of primitive man to the ways and conditions of civilized life, the conquest of Huwawa in the land of Amurru, the killing of lions and also of the bull

      This passage here just further shows how much power the woman did have for that brief period of time of teaching Enkidu. Once Enkidu knew how to survive, he knew his role already. His abilities were extremely important to his role against all of his challenges.

    6. Enkidu consents, and now the woman takes off her garments and clothes the naked Enkidu, while putting another garment on herself. She takes hold of his hand and leads him to the sheepfolds (not to Erech!!), where bread and wine are placed before him. Accustomed hitherto to sucking milk with cattle, Enkidu does not know what to do with the strange food until encouraged and instructed by the woman. The entire third column is taken up with this introduction of Enkidu to civilized life in a pastoral community, and the scene ends with Enkidu becoming a guardian of flocks.

      Here the woman is teaching him the ways of the land where if it had not been for her, Enkidu would have been lost and might not have fulfilled his fate. The role of the woman here is extremely important, she was almost like a catalyst in starting this motion of events.

    7. Column 4 gives in detail the meeting between the two, and naïvely describes how the woman exposes her charms to Enkidu, who is captivated by her and stays with her six days and seven nights. The animals see the change in Enkidu and run away from him. He has been transformed through the woman

      In this passage, the woman actually has power over the man having the ability to change him from the inside out. He has lost his connection with the animals which is extremely visible to them.

    8. "Go, my hunter, take with thee a woman, etc."

      You can see here that the woman did not have a choice but to follow Enkidu when Enkidu had the opportunity to do what he pleases with her. The male viewing her as an object to change.

    9. That Enkidu originally played the part of the slayer is also shown by the statement that it is he who insults Ishtar by throwing a piece of the carcass into the goddess' face, [93] adding also an insulting speech; and this despite the fact that Ishtar in her rage accuses Gilgamesh of killing the bull.

      You can see here that the woman acts extremely volatile when she gets rejected by Enkidu. The roles here play a part because i feel as if she lusts for him for his manly attributes and extreme exaggeration of his power. Enkidu's role was not to be Ishtar's for he had another fate to fulfill.

    10. That Enkidu originally played the part of the slayer is also shown by the statement that it is he who insults Ishtar by throwing a piece of the carcass into the goddess' face, [93] adding also an insulting speech; and this despite the fact that Ishtar in her rage accuses Gilgamesh of killing the bull.

    1. ‘Woman, I promise you another destiny. The mouth which cursed you shall bless you! Kings, princes and nobles shall adore you. On your account a man though twelve miles off will clap his hand to his thigh and his hair will twitch. For you he will undo his belt and open his treasure and you shall have your desire; lapis lazuli, gold and' carnelian from the heap in the treasury.

      Enkidu realizes after cursing the harlot that he was wrong in doing so. After all, she was the woman who civilized him and found his perfect match and companion. He praises her and promises her good fortune in her future. Although he did curse her at the beginning, men do have respect for women (after they realize they are wrong) sort of like Gilgamesh when Siduri give him life advice and he rejects it. Later on he realizes that he was wrong and began to appreciate his life.

    2. His body was rough, he had long hair like a woman's; it waved like the hair of Nisaba, the goddess of corn. His body was covered with matted hair like Samugan's, the god of cattle.

      The epic challenges the idea of gender and sexuality. There is no specific classification of gender and sexuality in the text. Women and men are treated differently, but there is no specification on what women and men do differently.

    3. Enkidu was grown wea k , for wisdom was in him, and the thoughts of a man were in his heart. So he returned and sat down at the woman's feet, and listened intently to what she said

      Women represent not only temptation and ruin but also power. Enkidu only thought with his heart whereas she was able to lead him in the right direction. Women are the greatest aid to the hero since they provide the men with the information they require to change themselves and the world.

    4. She answered, ‘Gilgamesh, where are you hurrying to? You will never find that life for which you are looking. When the gods created man they allotted to him death, but life they retained in their own keeping. As for you, Gilgamesh, fill your belly with good things; day and night, night and day, dance and be merry, feast and rejoice. Let your clothes be fresh, bathe yourself in water, cherish the little child that holds your hand, and make your wife happy in your embrace; for this too is the lot of man

      One of the prominent women in the Epic of Gilgamesh is Siduri. She gives advice to Gilgamesh who was blinded by the death of Enkidu. She encourages him to put away his grief and actually enjoy the life he is living instead of seeking immortality. He was busy trying to run away from death that he forgot to enjoy the things he had. As usual he ignored her advice and suffers greatly as his search for immortality was a failure.

    5. When Ishtar heard this she fell into a bitter rage, she went up to high heaven.

      Nature can be dangerous especially for those who travel in the wild. This is also a comparison to the Goddess Ishtar. She is powerful and can be an agent of destruction. When Gilgamesh not recognizing this aspect of the feminine caused destruction in his life. The death of Enkidu was the result of Gilgamesh rejecting her temptations.

    1. But the man remembered his mighty power, the glorious gift that God had sent him. in his Maker’s mercy put his trust for comfort and help: so he conquered the foe, felled the fiend, who fled abject, 1275reft of joy, to the realms of death, mankind’s foe. And his mother now, gloomy and grim, would go that quest of sorrow, the death of her son to avenge. To Heorot came she, where helmeted Danes 1280slept in the hall. Too soon came back old ills of the earls, when in she burst, the mother of Grendel. Less grim, though, that terror, e’en as terror of woman in war is less, might of maid, than of men in arms

      Another moment in the story of manipulation with God. This shows man trying to give an example of why we should control women into being submissive because if not she will turn into Grendel mother someone/something without god behind her but her fury and terror is much more than man if man did not have God.

    1. The Google Analytics Setup I Use on Every Site I Build : 글쓴이가 수없이 웹사이트에 GA를 설정해 보면서 얻는 경험으로 GA 스크립트의 로딩 자체를 최적화하는 방법과 커스텀 디멘션을 사용해서 유용한 추적설정을 한 내용을 모두 설명하고 있다. 설정 방법과 어떻게 보고 참고할 수 있는지까지 잘 나와 있어서 웬만한 사이트는 이 글의 내용을 그대로 따라 해도 될 정도고 여기 나온 내용을 바탕으로 사이트에 필요한 추적을 추가하기에도 좋다. 이 사람은 GA를 엄청나게 연구했는지 비슷한 작업을 매번 하다가 결국 autotrack 플러그인을 개발했고(이 플러그인만 사용해도 엄청 편하다) 이 글에서 설명한 코드를 참고할 수 있도록 analytics.js boilerplate를 만들어서 공유하고 있다.(영어)
