Reviews - What do customers think about Letters from Ancient Egypt. Society of Biblical Literature Writing from the Ancient World Series Volume 1?

Don't miss !  Nov 3, 2008
It is not an easy task to translate from ancient Egyptian, to make the resulted text understandable for the benefit of different kinds of readers. To accomplish such an aim you need a deep knowledge in your scientific field of research, a lot of experience, and even literary skill. All these abilities are present in the case of Prof. E. Wente's translations concerning the ancient Egyptian letters. The resulting book, Letters from Ancient Egypt, is a masterpiece of the genre. Wente, with a great ability, find the most proper English phrases for the majority of Egyptian idioms. Only with a few exceptions, in the most cases the texts translated came from the category of "letters", and dating back from the Old Kingdom, until the 21-st Dynasty(roughly 2600- 1000 B. C.). The items are organized in twelve sections, ending with the fascinating "Letters to the Dead and God". As a specialist in Egyptology, I highly recommend to everyone to purchase and read this attractive, instructive and valuable book.
