The Myth of Gilgamesh as a universal epic and an existential literary
work is the story of the human mind, his endeavors and sufferings and consequently his submission to life after death. The main theme of this mythological tale is the two contrasting concepts of death and immortality, and the exemplary endeavors of the epic´s hero for discovering the plant of life and immortality. In this oldest epic tale two natural incidents of “The Storm”, (The Noah´s storm), and “Seven Years of Hunger”, (The story of Joseph) are mentioned which have been indicated by Quran and Old Testament. In the present paper efforts have been made to view the concept of death and the secret of immortality of soul with a mythological approach and from the point view of Carl Custav Yung, the Swiss Psychologist´s way of analyzing mythological forms of “Dream”.
