HW: Write a practice thesis in response to this question:
When Enkidu dies, Gilgamesh nearly goes mad with grief. He sits by the body until it begins to decay, he puts on the skins of animals (such as Enkidu probably once wore), and he searches the wilderness and the underworld for the secret of immortality. Is because of his love for Enkidu and his desire to bring him back, or because Gilgamesh has finally recognized his own mortality and is terrified? Support your answer with specific examples from the text.
Remember, a good thesis statement names book and author, answers the question, and talks theme.
