Discussion 1.3: Inanna and Dimuzi

profilebdore174

As you’ve read, the poem of Inanna and Dimuzi includes agricultural metaphors that are a bit more explicit than your typical Old Farmer’s Almanac entry.  Discuss the underlying meaning of this poem and how it relates to the Warka Vase, Warka Mask, and White Temple and Ziggurat from Uruk.  How is the imagery on the exterior of the Warka Vase connected with this poem and why were these literary and visual images so important to the Sumerians?
