Ancient Egyptian civilization produced an extensive, diverse, and profound body of literature, including adventure stories, historical accounts, royal inscriptions, religious hymns, love poetry, satire, wisdom texts, biographies, and more. In this third of three courses in Middle Egyptian, students read a selection of primary texts in the original hieroglyphs as well as secondary literature pertaining to the original texts. Primary texts will include such classics as The Story of Sinuhe, The Shipwrecked Sailor, and The Eloquent Peasant. These texts will be used as windows onto the ancient Egyptian world, providing important evidence on many different aspects of ancient society, history, politics, and religion. Primary texts will also be selected based on research interests of enrolled students.
