    The Exaltation of Inanna is an Akkadian hymn to Ishtar (Sumerian: Inanna) and is the world's oldest attributed writing. The hymn was written by the Enheduana.   The High Priestess of the goddess Inanna was Enheduanna, the earliest known poet whose name has been recorded. This video is based on the Exaltation of Inanna: Associated with the planet Venus, Inanna is identified with the Greek goddess Aphrodite and with the Phoenician Astarte.

    In The Exaltation of Inanna, Enheduanna begins the line hymn with carefully arranged epithets and descriptions of the goddess Inanna to illustrate the characteristics of the goddess that become part of the unfolding story carefully building to the declaration that Inanna is the supreme deity. In the first section of "The Exaltation of Inanna," Enheduanna begins lines with the word "you" fifteen times. In the second section, she refers to herself as "I the high priestess," twice as "I Enheduanna," "I who am I," twice as "I even I," and "I most radiant priestess of Nanna.".
