Although only a small portion of the writings of ancient Egypt has survived, three leading scholars have selected and translated the most notable and complete narratives, teachings, and poems. Originally published in 1972, this revised edition includes the satire on the trades, and several additional instructions - of a man for his son, of Hardedef, and of Amunnakhte - and selections from the Late-Egyptian Miscellanies.
