    This book is an impressive collection of some of the earliest literature still extant from the great Ancient Egyptian civilization. Much of the material contained in this work -- poems, narratives, songs and prayers -- was translated here and made accessible to lovers of antiquity for the first time. Covering a range of topics including schools, religion and love, the collected works here provide the reader with a deeper understanding of ancient life along the Nile.

    Part 1 The Literature of the Ancient Egyptians; Chapter 1 Examples of the Oldest Poetry; Chapter 2 From the Older Period; Chapter 3 From the New Kingdom;
