Listen To The Epic Of Gilgamesh Melodiously Sung In Ancient Sumerian. Previously, we had talked about the oldest known song in the world, better known as the Hurrian Song to Nikkal, which was originally composed in the northern Syrian settlement of Ugarit almost 3,400-years ago.

Well this time around we are witness to yet another Mesopotamian cultural achievement in the form of Epic of Gilgamesh – possibly the oldest known epic in the world and also the earliest surviving great work of literature. Now the literary history of the titular character Gilgamesh comes down to us from five Sumerian poems, though the first iterations of the epic itself were possibly compiled in ‘Old Babylonian’ versions (circa 18th century BC). Simply put, while the provenance of these literary works is based on Sumerian language and literature, the end product/s (as available to common people) of the epic were possibly composed in Babylonian and related Akkadian – languages that were different from Sumerian, based on their Semitic origins.

La mano del autor y el espíritu del impresor: Siglos XVI-XVIII - Roger Chartier. En la temprana modernidad europea, los primeros lectores de un libro no eran quienes lo compraban: era los escribas que copiaban el manuscrito del autor o del traductor, los censores que lo autorizaban, el editor que decidía poner ese título en su catálogo, los revisores que preparaban el texto para la imprenta, lo dividían en capítulos o secciones y le añadían la puntuación, los cajistas que componían las páginas, los lectores de pruebas que lo corregían.

We have marked this milestone with a fresh user interface, designed to give ScriptSource a more contemporary feel. The new UI is more open – more blank space – and uses cleaner fonts and brighter colours. August 6th 2014: We have recently implemented a number of changes to ScriptSource. Here on the Home page the statistics (below) are now constantly updated, and include links which take you to the area of the site to which the statistic refers. We have enhanced the Search Results page to show results by type, so if, for instance, you are searching for a character, you can click on the "X was found in n characters" link to find what you're looking for. July 10th 2013: We have added a new tab to writing system and character pages to show grapheme and phoneme information.
