Too Much Pride In The Epic Of Gilgamesh

141 Words1 Page
The epic poem “The Epic of Gilgamesh” is about a ruler of a city-state who goes on a journey to find everlasting life after his close friend dies. First, you should know that the ruler's name is Gilgamesh, and that he was a tyrant and the gods wanted to kill him, but he ended up friends with the man sent to kill him. (Sandars). In my opinion, heroes should be courageous and strong. They should be able to fight off foes and be able to learn from their mistakes. Furthermore, heroes should not be tyrants and shouldn’t think only for themselves. (Sandars). Therefore, I believe it teaches the lesson that too much pride is bad because too much pride can make a selfish and too much pride can drive you to do things that are too much for you to handle.
