The Myths of Inanna The information on this site was developed by Dr. Honora M. Finkelstein as a series of lecture notes for a World Cultures course. It contains a variety of information about many aspects of world culture throughout the ages. The first literary work we’ll examine from ancient culture is a series of poems and songs about the Sumerian goddess Inanna, as published in Inanna: Queen of Heaven and Earth  by Diane Wolkstein and Samuel Noah Kramer (New York: Harper and Row, 1983).  (Click on the image to enlarge.) 1 - "The Huluppu Tree" 2 - "Inanna and the God of Wisdom" 3 - "The Courtship of Inanna and Dumuzi" 4 - "The Descent of Inanna" 5 - "The Dream of Dumuzi" 6 - "The Return" 7 - "Seven Hymns to Inanna" Made with Xara Website by Susan Smily
