Everybody in this world needs a friend The Epic of Gilgamesh was a book that tells the story of two friends Enkidu and Gilgamesh Friendship was an important theme in The Epic of Gilgamesh because it showed the reasons of Gilgameshs grief and why he tried to do the impossible just so his friend Enkidu could come back to life It also showed how loyal friends could be to each other Enkidu only knew the animals and Gilgamesh who was a king that had never treated anyone with equal rights Both men knew that their friendship would work out when the prostitute and Ninsun said It will be a person she continued Speaking in her somber monotone A companion who is your equal In strength a person loyal to a friend Who will not forsake you and whom you Will never wish to leave Gilgamesh was quiet at this interpretation Of his dream p 19 Ninsun was right and the friendship between Gilgamesh and Enkidu was one of great loyalty and trust The formation of friendship between Gilgamesh and Enkidu was very shocking As soon as they met each other they started to fight This event would have led people to think that their friendship wouldnt work out and that they would be enemies As the book develops we all learn that this is proven incorrect by their loyalty to one another An example of this would be the following quote And they were friends They had embraced and made their vow To stay together always No matter what the obstacle p 27 The best way the author portrayed this loyalty is by showing their companionship and encouragement to one another When one of the friends showed weakness the other reinforced fearlessness and reminded them of their friendship and how they will always be together No Enkidu cried it is the journey
