Neat Link: Quality Sumerian Texts On-Line

Click Me!
I recently discovered the Electronic Text Corpus of Sumerian Literature at the University of Oxford (click here). There are 400 literary compositions here, and the English translations are recent and high quality. The Site also contains transliterations of the Sumerian and background information on the texts. Remember, Sumerian literature is the earliest known, and many Sumerian texts present highly illuminating parallels to the literature of the Hebrew Scriptures.
