Robert Armour’s classic text, long cherished by a generation
of readers, is now complemented with more than 50 new
photographs and line drawings that show the gods and goddesses
in their characteristic forms. Armour maintains a strong narrative
thread with illuminating commentary in his lively, vigorous
retelling of stories from Egyptian mythology, including those of
the sun god Ra, the tragic death and rebirth of Osiris with the
help of Isis, the near-burlesque of Horus’ battle with the evil Seth,
and the ‘’gods of the intellect’’ Thoth and Maat. Now with an
updated bibliography and glossary as well as new charts showing
the gods at a glance and ancient Egyptian chronology in brief, this
book is sure to inform and enchant a new generation of readers.
Robert Armour is professor emeritus of English at Virginia Commonwealth University. During 1981–82 he was Fulbright Professor at the universities of al-Azhar and ‘Ain Shams in Cairo. He has written or edited six books.
