9780486280226: Legends of the Egyptian Gods: Hieroglyphic Texts and Translations

Former Keeper of Egyptian and Assyrian Antiquities in the British Museum, E. A. Wallis Budge (1857-1934) was one of the great Egyptologists of the century and author of a host of books on ancient Egypt. For this collection, he carefully selected nine of the most interesting and important Egyptian legends and published them in hieroglyphic texts with literal translations on facing pages. The result is a wonderful sampling of typical Egyptian literature in the best and most complete form possible.
This convenient edition enables students to study these ancient myths for their linguistic, literary, and cultural meanings — all in one inexpensive volume. The legends included are:
The Legend of the Creation
The Legend of the Destruction of Mankind
The Legend of Ra and the Snake-Bite
The Legend of Horus of Edfu and the Winged Disk
The Legend of the Origin of Horus
A Legend of Khensu Nefer-Hetep and the Princess of Bekhten
The Legend of Khnemu and a Seven Years’ Famine
The Legend of the Death and Resurrection of Horus
The Legend of Isis and Osiris According to Classical Writers
