4. The concept of the city — Uruk- in terms of splendor and grandeur. How does it contrast with the modern view of the city? Post your response in the ‘Unit 3 Gilgamesh #4.’

I find it absolutely painful to read this woman’s words. Apparently “proofreading” and “spell checking” are foreign concepts. I dread the mid-term, as the quiz questions often make no sense at all.

The woman holds a Ph.D. in English. She’s a full professor at Fort Valley State University. She’s also “Chair of Distance Learning & Online Instruction Task Force.”
