dragonspellforever: Not sure which is the oldest. but, here are a few i've read.
mahabharata, Elder Edda, Prose Edda, all three Divine comedy, Plutarch on Sparta, Bible " of course ", Beowulf, malice maleficarum. too name a few....
Nasty Boy: Epic of Gilgamesh(Read it in College) dates back 5000 years. It's the original flood story.
carrie5574: The Bible is the oldest book and the greatest book in my life. The Bible is awe inspiring. It comforts,,, and it picks you up, and it leads you .
NNJGal01: I've read the ones you listed AND the Kama Sutra 400 BCE. What I've learned is that the troubles and joys of humans are much the same today as they were in the ancient world. Nothing much has changed (so much for evolution).
Doubleoh: I once stared at cuneiform inscribed on a stone... I can’t say I read it. I have read translations of the oldest known works. Most are already mentioned. The Epic of Gilgamesh, the book of Job, Ancient Egyptian tales and Greek and Roman mythology along with eastern scripts. It’s interesting to peer through fragmented ancient scraps and get a minuscule glimpse into the mind of someone several millennia ago. We have not evolved. We are the same as them.
