Summary:
Defines and explores the ancient river valley civilizations and traces the move from oral traditions to literature. Highlights universal literary themes such as those found in the story of Job and the Epic of Gilgamesh. Reveals the practical reasons for the development of writing in China, Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Phoenicia and its connection to the religious, political, and economic power centers. Surveys the literary forms used by ancient poets-epics, lyrical poems, and sacred dramas-and probes the timeless questions raised by these works.
