What Makes Gilgamesh An Epic Hero

Satisfactory Essays
A modern hero is someone of supernatural ability's of someone with great intelligence. In this epic Gilgamesh shows more of what it takes to be a epic hero. A epic hero is of nobility, integrity, strength, wisdom and many other great quality's. One of the great quality's that make Gilgamesh a epic hero is his willingness to put others before himself. He care more about others then himself and this made him a true warrior and not only bond but at mind. When I say he puts others before him self I'm describing the fact when he faced the beast Humbaba he did not turn around and run I felt as if he stayed and fought the beast to protect his people. This shows another characteristic that shows he is an epic hero.
