The Epic of Gilgamesh

On page 41, the text states, “Dreams were omens. Dreams were messages.” How has this line already played an important part in the story so far?

I need help.

Dreams are a powerful motif in the story. Dreams are the primary mode of communication between gods and mortals. It is dreams which allow Enkidu to describe the horrors of the Underworld providing the impetus for Gilgamesh to go in search of immortality.
