Omparison of the biblical story of Noah to other ancient Near Eastern flood stories/epics.

In five pages (1inch margin, double-spaced, 12 point times new Roman font), discuss the relationship of the biblical story of Noah to other ancient Near Eastern flood stories/epics. Consider such issues as: To what historical period do each belong? How do the story lines compare? Are there common elements in the stories? What different elements exist? What is the purpose of each story in relationship to god(s)/ the divine? Why might similarities/differences exist between the various stories?
