about

The latest edition of this highly praised anthology of ancient Egyptian literature 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
William Kelly Simpson is professor of Egyptology and Near Eastern Languages, Civilizations, and Literatures at Yale University.
