Poetry, stories, hymns, prayers, and wisdom texts found exquisite written expression in ancient Egypt while their literary counterparts were still being recited around hearth fires in ancient Greece and Israel. Yet, because of its very antiquity and the centuries during which the language was forgotten, ancient Egyptian literature is a newly discovered country for modern readers. This anthology offers an extensive sampling of all the major genres of ancient Egyptian literature. It includes all the texts from John Foster's previous book Echoes of Egyptian Voices, along with selections from his Love Songs of the New Kingdom and Hymns, Prayers, and Songs: An Anthology of Ancient Egyptian Lyric Poetry, as well as previously unpublished translations of four longer and two short poems. Foster's translations capture the poetical beauty of the Egyptian language and the spirit that impelled each piece's composition, making these ancient masterworks sing for modern readers. An introduction to ancient Egyptian literature and its translation, as well as brief information about the authorship and date of each selection, completes the volume.… (mere)

I have heard the words of Imhotep, and Hordjedef, too,

retold time and again in their narrations.

Where are their dwellings now?

Their walls are down,

Their places gone,

like something that has never been.

-- Harper’s Song from the Tomb of King Intef

PREFACE

The following pieces are gathered from earlier volumes of my translations of ancient Egyptian literature: the entirety of Echoes of Egyptian Voices (1992), and
selections from Love Songs of the New Kingdom (1974; 1992) and Hymns, Prayers, and Songs: An Anthology of Ancient Egyptian Lyric Poetry (1995).
Akhenaten’s Hymn to the Sun

Composed circa 1350 B.C., possibly by King Akhenaten
himself (who is the speaker of the poem), this
hymn exalts the one God who created heaven and earth—but here in His visible (not hidden) form as the Sun, which makes all life possible.

Poetry, stories, hymns, prayers, and wisdom texts found exquisite written expression in ancient Egypt while their literary counterparts were still being recited around hearth fires in ancient Greece and Israel. Yet, because of its very antiquity and the centuries during which the language was forgotten, ancient Egyptian literature is a newly discovered country for modern readers. This anthology offers an extensive sampling of all the major genres of ancient Egyptian literature. It includes all the texts from John Foster's previous book Echoes of Egyptian Voices, along with selections from his Love Songs of the New Kingdom and Hymns, Prayers, and Songs: An Anthology of Ancient Egyptian Lyric Poetry, as well as previously unpublished translations of four longer and two short poems. Foster's translations capture the poetical beauty of the Egyptian language and the spirit that impelled each piece's composition, making these ancient masterworks sing for modern readers. An introduction to ancient Egyptian literature and its translation, as well as brief information about the authorship and date of each selection, completes the volume.
