This is one of the great texts from the golden age of Egyptian literature in the Middle Kingdom. Although the tale has been much studied and quoted, there has never been a full parallel edition of the manuscripts. This volume, though not a translation, provides a standard text to serve as a basis for further research. Parkinson has collated the transciptions with the original papyri in Berlin and London, and proposes a number of new and improved readings. The introduction describes the manuscripts and discusses their date and provenance.
