Summary
The Song to Marduk (enūma eliš) is probably the most important mythical text of the ancient Babylonian culture. It tells of the rise of the young god Marduk who becomes the absolute ruler of all gods and of the world. This study by Gösta Gabriel is the first overall interpretation of the work which focuses on this single text and analyses its external effective dimension (pragmatics), its internal constitution (structure) and meaning (semantics).
