Product Overview

Defining the literary as the content of literary books, as a distinctive material product, the author provides transliteration and translation into English for every surviving literary composition from the Middle Kingdom. Alongside famous intact masterpieces such as the Tale of Sanehat (Sinuhe), all literary fragments are also included. The series of translations is preceded by a short general discussion of four key aspects of literature: survival of books (with a list of the ten surviving groups of books from ancient Egypt); definitions of literature; authorship, the question of how literary works were composed; and reception, the question of how they were read.
