Because the group of boys don’t understand fear, they sadly rip Simon up thinking he was the beast. Simon’s wisdom of the truth can also be compared to Jesus ' knowledge about the true Beast. Like Simon, Jesus also went on a journey and was challenged by the devil. Jesus went 40 days in a desert with no food or water, and when he came back he later died in an inhuman way. People are sometimes unable to face and believe the truth.
Even though Gilgamesh is the main character, his treatment of people was unacceptable and made his people hate him. “ As king, Gilgamesh was a tyrant to his people... he had the privilege of sleeping with their brides.”(15). Gilgamesh was not a good person, even when he came back he was not seen as a hero by his people, the past hurt the present. Also, usually a hero comes back with pride and gifts but in the epic, “As the end of his journey. And returned to Uruk.
Anxiety, like Grendel causes you to feel alone, attacks innocent people, and creates jealousy of others happiness. Grendel has been isolated into darkness, causing him to be miserable. For example, “A powerful monster, living down in the darkness, growled in pain,” he chooses to isolate himself from all people because he is a coward (lines 1-2).

Gilgamesh killed Humbaba for no other reason than showing that he could. I feel that Gilgamesh is more of a monster than Humbaba because Humbaba only killed to protect a sacred forest.

We can see this theme in 'The Lion King ' as well; before the death of King Mufasa, the ground was shaken by the wickedness and the dark night also covered the light sky. And after Scar detroned King Mufasa by killing him, the citizen of the Pride Lands have to face with the famine. According to the quote from one of the three hyenas while he 's talking with King Scar, "Scar, there 's no food, no water."

The Bull of Heaven symbolizes how unpredictable nature is. “Through the death of Enkidu, we are made aware of how scared Gilgamesh is of death however he still learns to survive, and evolve, but it also destroys an innocence that might have made death less painful. With death comes the knowledge of one’s own mortality”, “It was I who cut down the cedar, I who leveled the forest, I who slew Humbaba and now see what has become of me.” (Book 8) This also explains how the gods use the power of nature to frighten Gilgamesh and punish him for killing Humbaba. This shows that even though nature was an obstacle to Gilgamesh, he was still able to conquer
