Miriam Lichtheim’s carefully chosen book of readings from one of the earliest literatures in the world is designed to show the evolution of that literature by selections translated and arranged in chronological order. Its appeal is to both scholars and readers with a general interest in the humanities. Altogether, Lichtheim has produced a book which admirably fulfills her desire ‘to reach beyond the confines of professional specialization while at the same time making a contribution to the specialized discipline.’ Volume 2 shows the culmination of these literary genres within the single period known as the New Kingdom (1550–1080 BC).
