AUC Press's Description
This anthology of ancient Egyptian literature includes annotated classics such as the story of Sinuhe, religious texts—including Penitential Hymns—historical texts, and writings from the late literature of the Demotic period at the end of classical Egyptian history, including the Romance of Setna Khaemuas and the Mummies.
The latest edition of this highly praised work offers fresh translations of all the texts as well as some twenty-five new entries, including writings from the late literature of the Demotic period at the end of classical Egyptian history. The book also includes an extensive bibliography.
Praise for the earlier editions:
‘’An elegant, easily readable, and most serviceable volume.’’—K. A. Kitchen, Journal of Near Eastern Studies.
‘’A reliable rendering of the Egyptian text that can be useful to students of Egyptology and provide the layman with delightful reading material.’’—Mordechai Gilula, Cultura.
