Meet the First Author in History – Enheduanna

The first author in recorded history is largely unknown, although, in her lifetime, she was the most powerful and famous person in the entire kingdom of Ur. We’re talking about Enheduanna, an ancient Sumerian high priestess, and a recognized author who had written 45 hymns and 3 epic poems before she was exiled from the kingdom. This was 4,300 years ago, and this is Enheduanna’s tragic and heroic life story.
