  • Gilgamesh Essay Questions

    Why am I here?; What happens to me after I die?; How, then, should I live? These are the questions almost everyone in the lifetime eventually asks themselves. These questions ask what being human really is, and why we, as humans, live the way we do. Put together, these questions are called the Great Conversation. The Great Conversation questions will be dissected and answered by looking at answers given through three stories, the story of Gilgamesh, the story of Mahabharata, and a Buddhist parable. The story of Gilgamesh, asks the question, what happens to me after I die?, through Gilgamesh, a Sumerian who is two-thirds divine, of perfect beauty, and has courage and wisdon. In the Sumerian culture, they believe that nothing happens to you after you die, your existance just ceases to exist. Gilgamesh did not want to believe this, and went on an adventure to find out the secrets of the world, bring back the story of the time before the flood, and find eternal life. The story of Gilgamesh answers this question, because Gilgamesh’s adventure is to find eternal life, so he doesn’t have to find out what happens after he dies, like Enkidu, Gilgamesh’s close friend. “As he wavered between life and death, Enkidu told Gilgamesh, ‘I have dreamed my death. The Black Bird of Death seized me in his talons and carried me to the House of Dust, the palace of Erkalla, Queen of the Dark.’” Since Gilgamesh doesn’t explicitly know what will happen, but listened to what Enkidu told him, he…

  • Personal Narrative: Who Am I Here?

    For as long as I can remember, there is a specific question that I have asked myself: Why am I here and where am I headed?

  • Metaphors In Plato's The Allegory Of The Cave

    As I was reading a story on Plato, The Allegory of the Cave is Plato’s way of talking about the human soul. The Allegory points to people who are so focused into their surroundings that these people often become trapped as one within, without really knowing their true ability to keen with their senses.
