"When first published in 1882, the folktales collected in Popular Stories of Ancient Egypt comprised the first anthology of ancient Egyptian narratives ever to be compiled into book form. The culmination of a life's work by Gaston Maspero, a towering figure of nineteenth-century Egyptology, it presented a wealth of information on Egyptian culture, language, history, and society. Since its publication, additional texts have been discovered, deciphered, or translated into modern languages. The present collection is made up of twenty-four tales gleaned from countless ancient written sources, and from a variety of historical periods. It contains some of the most ancient folktales in existence, such as The Tale of the Two Brothers, thought to be the oldest in the world. Other stories include King Khufui and the Magicians, The Lamentations of the Fellah, The Shipwrecked Sailor, The Adventure of Satni-Khamois with the Mummies, The Doomed Prince, and The Story of Rhampsinitus. This edition contains a new foreword by Hasan El-Shamy that describes Maspero's work, and provides for the first time a motif index and extensive identifications of the ancient Egyptian traditions in terms of international tale-types." "Certain to be of interest to folklorists and Egyptologists, this classic collection will also amuse parents, students, storytellers, or anyone who enjoys authentic folk wisdom."--Jacket

Extrait : ""Le ciel est gris, des traînées de brume mélancolique flottent sur les berges, une tache jaunâtre marque par intervalles la place où le soleil devrait briller ; est-ce bien l'Égypte, et qu'a-t-elle fait de sa lumière, depuis treize ans que je l'ai quittée? On grelotte sur le Nil, et le pont du bateau serait bientôt inhabitable, si l'on ne se résignait à endosser un paletot d'hiver.""
