Overview

Egyptian Legends and Stories by M. V. Seton-Williams

Ancient Egypt has a rich tradition of stories and proverbs, recorded by scribes. This book raises these stories from the dust, and presents obscure ancient texts in a readable form. The selections date from the Old Kingdom to medieval times, the majority being based on religious themes. There are many surprising new texts here, but some of the themes seem familiar: the creation myth of Memphis theology is similar to the bible while 'The Capture of Joppa' is an older version of 'Ali Baba'.
