I plan to read the Andrew George translation as he translated from the original Akkadian. I will then use the Stephen Mitchell translation for a 2nd reading as well as for the notes and introduction. I have also heard the Benjamin Foster translation (Norton Critical) is good as both him and Andrew George are experts in Akkadian literature (thank you Jason Staples & Joshua Alfaro).
