In the second half of this text, several characters: the Scorpion People, Siduri the divine tavernkeeper, Urshanabi the divine ferryman, and Utanapishtim the man who survived the flood bar Gilgamesh’s progress to the land of the immortals. Furthermore, there are material and immaterial obstacles: the tunnel of the Sun, the Sea of Death, and Sleep. Joseph Campbell states that these “gatekeepers” are not meant to hinder or block a hero’s/heroine’s progress, but to test his/her readiness for the adventure. Pick one of these “gatekeepers” or obstacles and offer up your analysis of how he/she/it moves the epic forward.
In addition to posting your response to one of the options above, your initial post should also contain a question or observation you have about the text that can further advance text discussion.
