The Courtesan & The Dreamer

Gilgamesh has two dreams which his mother interprets as the coming of Enkidu into his life. When reports come to him, of a ‘wild man’ who will equal him in strength, a courtesan is sent from the city into the wilderness. Her task is to transform him and bring him to the civilised world of the city which she does by means of her feminine charms.
