The Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt is more of an introduction to its subject than an exhaustive exploration of it. Leonard Everett Fisher touches on thirteen gods and goddesses that form the basis of Egyptian mythology, elaborating on their origins, roles, and portrayal in Egyptian art in a handful of concise paragraphs. Accompanying the text are large, bright illustrations of the gods and goddesses, each styled to mimic the art of the time. A brief family tree, pronunciation guide, and bibliography complete the book, making it an ideal pick for a younger reader. Older readers may appreciate learning the basics of Egyptian gods and goddesses but will likely want more information on gods and goddesses that Fisher only briefly mentions: Seshat, Apis, Thoth, and Nun.… (mere)
