Captain Picard tells the story of Gilgamesh

Posted by eastwoldblog on February 1, 2010

I was looking for examples of stories from other cultures and this is the one which caught my attention.

I feel it proves a point.

The alien tells the story in very unusual English, and Picard manages to understand, which proves the point I was making about how “Oral Stories” can change over time, with different re-telling.

Picard tries to remember a story he can share with the alien – as he says “Even though you won’t understand, you still want to hear it.”

He chooses the story of Gilgamesh…enjoy.

If you have any thoughts about how the alien tells the story, about how Picard understands it, or about the story Picard tells, then share them here.

Mr W.
