Ancient Egyptian Legends
by M. A. Murray

IN this book I have retold the legends of the Gods of ancient Egypt, legends, which were current in the "morning of the world," preserved to the present day engraved on stone and written on papyri. I have told them in my own way, adhering strictly to the story, but arranging the words and phrases according to the English method; retaining, however, as far as possible the expressions and metaphors of the Egyptian. In some cases I have inserted whole sentences in order to make the sense clear; these are in places where the story divides naturally into several parts, as in "The Battles of Horus," and "The Regions of Night and Thick Darkness"; where each incident, so like the one preceding and the one following, is kept distinct in the mind of the reader by this means. This repetition is quite in accordance with the style of Egyptian literature.

If nothing else, this short tome by the late Margaret Murray illustrates the logic and the complexity of ancient Egyptian mythology. I got several "a-ha" insights from her writing. Too, it makes me want to have an org chart of the Egyptian gods. Someday, I want to go to Egypt. I'd be thrilled to actually read a heiroglyph. The book already teaches me something of the reasons for their monuments, their festivals and there reverence for their leadership. Where I fault the book and many other inexpensive/free books is that nobody seems to want to check for errors in text conversion before release.The first time this happened to me, I actually thought the fault was mine.
