This volume deals with the development and the characteristics of the literature of Ancient Egypt over a period of more than two millennia, from the monumental origins of autobiography at the end of the Old Kingdom (ca. 2150 BCE) down to the latest literary compositions in Demotic during the Graeco-Roman period (300 BCE-200 CE).
This book, the result of an international co-operation among more than twenty scholars, is divided into sections devoted to the definition of literary discourse in Ancient Egypt; the history and genres of these texts, their linguistic and stylistic features; and the image of Ancient Egypt as displayed in later literary traditions of the Mediterranean world - Greek, Coptic, Arabic.
With over thirty chapters, this volume provides an interdisciplinary account of current research in one of the methodologically most advanced fields of Egyptology.

The civilization of Ancient Egypt is among the first in the world and among the most impressive of its time. A marked preoccupation with the afterlife, relative geographical isolation, an extremely fertile soil, and high demands made on the people to manage the annual floods of the Nile combined to create an amazingly rich and varied culture with a strong identity of its own that existed uninterrupted for three thousand years. The Probleme der Ägyptologie series, founded in 1953 by Hermann Kees, is focused on the religion, literature, politics, language, and social and economic history of Ancient Egypt, including pharaonic, Ptolemaic, and Roman time periods. The series includes monographs on substantial subjects, thematic collections of articles, and handbooks.

The series published two volumes over the last 5 years.
