Homework for Wednesday, September 16th

September 15, 2015

Gentlemen,

Thanks for a good class on Monday. As we discuss the text you should be noting the passages that we pause on. One assesment tool I will use is passage identification. On tests you will be asked to identify a text and state its importance. Those passages will always be ones that we discuss in class.

Using our review of the first lines of the Enuma Elish as a context, reread the first three tablets to gain a clearer understanding of the story. Once you have completed that task, please move on to Tablet #4 attached below. Keep in mind your continued work on cosmogony and every day life. Additionally, answer the following:

1. How does Marduk establish his pre-eminence over the others gods in the assembly?
2. How does Marduk kill Tiamat? Be as specific as possible.
3. What does Marduk do with Tiamat after killing her?
