  • Gilgameshby Stephen Mitchell

    Atria Books 2010; US$ 15.99

    Gilgamesh is considered one of the masterpieces of world literature, and although previously there have been competent scholarly translations of it, until now there has not been a version that is a superlative literary text in its own right.

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 224.00

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    This book is a seminal study that significantly expands the interdisciplinary discourse on African literature and cinema by exploring Africa?s under-visited carnivalesque poetics of laughter.
