About the Book -- LOVE SONGS IN SUMERIAN LITERATURE

Love Songs in Sumerian Literature (Critical Edition in the Dumuzi-Inanna Songs) is a collection of all the sources, published and unpublished, dealing with the love, courtship and sacred marriage of the Mesopotamian love-goddess Inanna (Ishtar) and her divine spouse Dumuzi (Tammuz). This literary corpus composed during the Third Dynasty of Ur and the early Old Babylonian period (ca. 2100-1800 BCE) consists of 27 songs with approximately 1500 lines of poetry. In this volume, previous editions of the songs have been updated, both by collating the texts from the originals, scattered in various museums in Istanbul, the United States and Europe, and by incorporating in the text editions recently discovered duplicates. Each text edition is provided with an English translation, a detailed philological commentary and a literary analysis. The introduction to the corpus includes a thematic and typological study of the corpus and an evaluation of this literary genre. From the series Bar-Ilan Studies in Near Eastern Languages and Culture תאור קורפוס שלם ומעודכן של כל מזמורי האהבה השומריים מוצג לפנינו, במהדורה ביקורתית. השירים מובאים בשפת המקור וכן בתרגומם לאנגלית, מלווים בביאור ענייני ולשוני ובניתוח ספרותי. שירה זו, שחוברה בשלהי האלף השלישי ובתחילת האלף השני לפנה``ס, היא פולחנית בעיקרה, ומרוכזת בפרשת אהבתם ונישואיהם של זוג אלי הפריון (לפי תפיסת עולמם של השומרים הקדמונים), דומזי (תמוז המקראי) ואיננה (אשתר/עשתורת).
