    1. I got this book in a lot with other books on eBay. It was the odd one out. The printing I have is from 1971, but it was written in 1956. Maybe the archaeology is outdated, but they translate some fragments found on stone tablets in Syria. The tablets are damaged, so they're not able to present finished narratives. If they've found anything since, I don't know about it. Legends of El, Baal, and various pre-Israelite mythology. This book exists mostly for the completest, or just so a record exists [...]

    2. Admittedly, I got tired of trying to follow the narrative through the breaks in the text and archaic phrasing, so I ended up just reading the summaries in the introduction, which helped me get the flow of the stories in much less time.
