The poem known as "The Dialogue of Ipuwer and the Lord of All" is one of the most important works of Middle Egyptian literature (ca. 19501650 BC) and is a crucial text for the understanding of Egyptian theology and royal ideology. Yet because the poem's sole surviving manuscript is poorly preserved, the text has had less impact on discussions than it should. This book seeks to remedy this neglect and to provide a basis for further study by publishing the first new, fully collated, edition of the poem for almost a century. The text is presented in hieroglyphic transcription accompanied by notes discussing uncertain or disputed readings. A number of new readings are proposed. The book includes a complete set of photographs of the manuscript, enabling the user to verify readings. The introduction gives a detailed discussion of the manuscript, its provenance, condition, and dating, together with a select bibliography of research on the poem.About the Author:
