    Wisdom of Ancient Egypt

    I study Egyptology and just translated three AE tales - Ipuver, Khakheperraseneb and Neferti and I wanna share how much these texts reminded me to the crisis in modern society. There are translations in internet - I cannot post links yet, but find them and read them - you'll like em!

    you know with http in front
    Here is Ipuwer for beginning.
    all of the texts I've mentioned describe the 1st intermediate period and were written in Middle Egyptian. Glad to hear a professional question!

    Re: Wisdom of Ancient Egypt

    Elsewhere on this site, I mentioned I'm in the process of writing a novel. As anyone who's written a book knows, you've got to do a certain amount of research before you can sit down and write, even if you're writing fiction.

    One of my main characters is a girl named Cleopatra, so named after the Egyptian queen. In order to have the amount of verbiage necessary to pique the interest of publishers and agents, I'm researching the ancient queen's life in order to get ideas I can write about. This past winter I read, "Cleopatra And Rome." written by Diana E.E. Kleiner. Then I read Shakespeare's play, "Antony And Cleopatra," (which wasn't much help, really.) I'm now plowing my way through a novel by Margaret George called, "Memoirs Of Cleopatra," which is the most helpful of the three. It's nearly a thousand pages long, unfortunately.

    Best of luck, K. Hope we get a preview of the finished work.

    there goes Neferti!
    I only give you links to english translations in the net.
    I've translated these texts in my own language - bulgarian and right now I'm negotiating with publishers.

    When I read these texts and then watch the news I remember the words of Ecclesiastes...
