Conflict in Gilgaesh

Conflict plays a huge role in Gilgamesh from beginning to end. In the beginning of Gilgamesh we see that he himself causes the confusion and conflict. In the beginning he states: " The place of Gilgamesh, who is perfect in strength, And so like a wild bull, he lords over the young men".He his very destructive and uses his strength to his advantage.


He says in the beginning: " I will raise a cry in Uruk: i am the mighty one !". He built the city of Uruk to protect his people, but at the same time condemned them. His strength allowed him to cause much conflict within the city . ( WATCH VIDEO BELOW :) ENJOY !)
