Gilgamesh Gilgamesh Palais de Sargon Gilgamesh est un roi à demi légendaire de la cité d'Ourouk (Uruk), qui aurait régné vers 2600 avant notre ère. D'origine sumérienne, ce récit s'est transmis d'abord de manière orale, puis il fut écrit vers 2000 avant notre ère à Babylone. La version la plus achevée, écrite sur douze tablettes, a été retrouvée à Ninive, dans la bibliothèque du roi syrien Assourbanipal (668-627 avant notre ère). Elle comprend 3400 vers répartis sur douze tablettes: Tablette 1 - Présentation de Gilgamesh et d'Enkidu Tablette 2 - Rencontre de Gilgamesh et d'Enkidu Tablette 3 - Décision d'aller combattre Humbaba; inquiétude d'Enkidu et du peuple. Celui qui a tout vu, [Sha nagba imuru]. Monarque semi-légendaire Gilgamesh, "celui qui a tout vu" , est le héros à la fois despotique et humain d'une longue épopée mainte fois remaniée qui est la base de la littérature antique. Enkidu sous la forme semi animale combat Gilgamesh.

Il s'agit d'un poème en trente-deux strophes transmis par le Codex Regius. Reproduction de Mjöllnir (marteau de Thor), sous forme de pendentif en argent Récit[modifier | modifier le code] Thrym prépare sa halle pour accueillir Freyja (22), pour qui il éprouve un grand désir (23). Les deux dieux arrivent pour le dîner, au cours duquel Thor dévore entre autres un bœuf et huit saumons, arrosés de trois tonneaux d'hydromel (24). L'auteur et son époque[modifier | modifier le code] Un poème récent ? Il y a plusieurs décennies, E. De nombreux arguments vont en effet dans le sens d'une composition récente. Un certain consensus semble donc se dégager pour dater ce poème de la fin du XIIe ou du XIIIe siècle. Une parodie ? Du fait notamment des multiples emprunts à d'autres textes, certains auteurs ont soutenu l'idée selon laquelle la Thrymskvida serait une œuvre parodique et satirique. Un poème de Snorri Sturluson ? Heimdall, un dieu vane ?

Free Icon Fonts for Web User Interfaces By Jacob Gube This roundup features 18 free icon fonts that can be used in your commercial projects. The icon fonts in this post are perfect for your app user interfaces (UIs). What are Icon Fonts? Icon fonts are font files that have symbols and glyphs (e.g. arrows, folders, magnifying glasses) instead of standard alphanumeric characters. Icon fonts are like dingbat fonts, but are designed specifically for UIs. And because they’re treated like web fonts, icon fonts: Have great cross-browser support (even IE6, for example, can render web fonts using the @font-face rule)Can be scaled on-the-fly if the user adjusts their web browser settingsCan be rendered with different colorsCan embody font- and text-related CSS properties (like text-shadow and gradient) See icon fonts in action by visiting my friend Chris Coyier’s icon fonts demo page.
