Beschreibung

The texts and visual arts of ancient Egypt reveal a persistent and sophisticated engagement with problems of language, the body, and multiplicity. 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.

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
