These new translations bring to life for the modern reader the golden age of Egyptian fictional literature, the Middle Kingdom (c. 1938-1640 BC), and include the masterpiece of Egyptian poetry, The Tale of Sinuhe. An introduction and notes explain historical details, and offer for the first time a literary reading, to enable these poems to entertain and instruct, as they did their original audiences three-and-a-half thousand years ago.
