Writings from Ancient Egypt

ISBN: 9780141395968
Release Date: 2016-08-25
Genre: History

'Man perishes; his corpse turns to dust; all his relatives pass away. But writings make him remembered.' The fascination Ancient Egypt holds in our minds has many sources, but at the heart of it lie hieroglyphics. This extraordinary writing system was for many years seen as the ultimate challenge and puzzle before finally being cracked in the 1820s. Preserved carved in stone or inked on papyri, hieroglyphic writings give a unique insight into an awe-inspiring but also deeply mysterious culture. Toby Wilkinson has translated a rich selection of pieces, ranging from accounts of battles to hymns to stories to royal proclamations. This book is both very enjoyable and an essential resource for anyone wanting to study one of humankind's great civilizations.

Daughters of Isis

Author: Joyce Tyldesley
Publisher: Penguin UK
ISBN: 9780141949819
Release Date: 1995-03-30
Genre: History

In ancient Egypt women enjoyed a legal, social and sexual independence unrivalled by their Greek or Roman sisters, or in fact by most women until the late nineteenth century. They could own and trade in property, work outside the home, marry foreigners and live alone without the protection of a male guardian. Some of them even rose to rule Egypt as ‘female kings’. Joyce Tyldesley’s vivid history of how women lived in ancient Egypt weaves a fascinating picture of daily life – marriage and the home, work and play, grooming and religion – viewed from a female perspective, in a work that is engaging, original and constantly surprising.

The Egyptians

Author: Sergio Donadoni
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
ISBN: 0226155552
Release Date: 1997-06-23
Genre: History

This collection of eleven essays presents studies of ancient Egyptians arranged by social type - slaves, craftsmen, priests, bureaucrats, the pharaoh, peasants and women, among others. Each chapter works as a discrete unit, with a great deal of historical detail which is both informative and interesting; for instance, did you know that Egyptian peasants could not afford burial, their bodies instead being abandoned on the desert fringe? Read as a whole, the book creates a larger picture of Egyptian culture, state and society. The framework of the state is a recurrent theme in all the essays; Egypt's meticulous administration and well-organized hierarchical system fostered centuries of stability and prosperity, and we see that each Egyptian `type' is linked by their role within this structure.

Voices from the Other World

Author: Naguib Mahfouz
Publisher: Anchor
ISBN: 9780307430076
Release Date: 2007-12-18
Genre: Fiction

Nobel laureate Naguib Mahfouz reaches back millennia to his homeland’s majestic past in this enchanting collection of early tales that brings the world of ancient Egypt face to face with our own times. From the Predynastic Period, where a cabal of entrenched rulers banish virtue in jealous defense of their status, to the Fifth Dynasty, where a Pharaoh returns from an extended leave to find that only his dog has remained loyal, to the twentieth century, where a mummy from the Eighteenth Dynasty awakens in fury to reproach a modern Egyptian nobleman for his arrogance, these five stories conduct timeless truths over the course of thousands of years. Summoning the power and mystery of a legendary civilization, they examplify the artistry that has made Mahfouz among the most revered writers in world literature. Translated by Raymond Stock From the Trade Paperback edition.
