In the second half of the epic, distress about Enkidu's death causes Gilgamesh to undertake a long and perilous journey to discover the secret of eternal life. He eventually learns that "Life, which you look for, you will never find. For when the gods created man, they let death be his share, and life withheld in their own hands". [2] [3] However, because of his great building projects, his account of Siduri 's advice, and what the immortal man Utnapishtim told him about the Great Flood , Gilgamesh's fame survived his death. His story has been translated into many languages, and in recent years has featured in works of popular fiction .
