Tyldesley does it again.,
This review is from: The Penguin Book of Myths and Legends of Ancient Egypt (Hardcover)
Joyce Tyldesley expands on her previous book "Tales from Ancient Egypt" to great effect. Translating herself she re tells the stories so they flow in English. An excellent book with interesting and relevant photographs taken by her husband Steteven Snape. As well as the contents being excellent the cover is exceptionally effective as well as being attractive.

Joyce Tyldesley did not translate a single word. In fact she honestly wrote the references of the translations she used all along the book (see notes p.348-358), mainly Miriam Lichtheim's ones.
