(1) Answers

For the answer to the question above, repetition is a frequent technique the author used in the Epic of Gilgamesh, as is the theme of duality. Repetition reinforces themes present in the story, or attributes of a character. Sometimes repetition can also draw contrasts between different events or characters. Besides reinforcing elements in the story, repetition also suggests that these stories may have had a strong oral tradition and were largely passed down in this manner before being committed to these tablets. I hope this helps!
