This innovative book shows how these issues were represented and how Egyptian approaches to them continue to influence the way we think about them today.

PortraitTom Hare is Associate Professor of Japanese and Comparative Literature at Stanford University. He is the author of "Zeami's Style: The Noh Plays of Zeami Motokiyo" (Stanford, 1986).
Pressestimmen'Hare's book is the first postmodern treatment of ancient Egypt, meaning an approach that is highly subjective, reflexive, ironic, ludic, eclectic, reconstructive, imaginative, and creative ... a fresh and uninhibited look at Egyptian texts and Egyptological theories and interpretations.' Jan Assmann, University of Heidelberg
