Praise for the earlier editions:

About the Author:

William Kelly Simpson is professor of Egyptology and Near Eastern Languages, Civilizations, and Literatures at Yale University.

Review:

"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

"One may rarely recommend a volume which gives both an enlightening and a reliable insight into an ancient civilization. In this volume of translations, however, the reader can understand and empathize with much of the vitality of ancient Egypt, in mental and social life rather than the familiar icons of monumental architecture."—South African Archaeological Bulletin

"An elegant, easily readable, and most serviceable volume."—K. A. Kitchen, Journal of Near Eastern Studies
