This is the first comprehensive anthology in English of ancient Egyptian lyric poetry. Translated from the original Egyptian, the collection emphasizes the value of the ancient poems as literature. The translations retain an accurate sense of the original language, and the poems are set in the proper, 'thought couplet' style characteristic of Egyptian verse. Hymns, prayers, and songs pertaining to religion, the pharoahs, death, and love, among other topics, are included. This unique anthology will be of interest to students and scholars alike, in areas as diverse as Egyptian literature and religion, Near Eastern history, and world literature in translation.
