Publisher's summary

A captivating collection of the most popular Egyptian myths.

It can be challenging to find a comprehensive and engaging collection of Egyptian myths considering the number of versions and translations available. However, look no further, as you have found a captivating audiobook that includes many of the most popular Egyptian myths in an easy-to-listen-to format.

This audiobook is divided into four parts. The first, titled “Cosmological Narratives,” contains myths concerning the creation of the world and how the ancient Egyptians understood the structure of the underworld and the passage to the afterlife.

“Myths of the Gods” contains the great myths of the gods Ra, Isis, Osiris, Horus, and Set.

The third section contains two political myths, the tale of the birth of Hatshepsut and “The Tale of the Famine”, both of which are stories created by rulers to consolidate their power by claiming divine intervention and favor.

Other stories, similar to what we today would call fairy tales, make up the last section of the audiobook, and they are full of magical wonders, animals that speak, and gods who reveal themselves to human beings and take an active role in their affairs.

In this audiobook, you'll find the following Egyptian myths and topics covered:

  • Creation myths
  • The birth of Osiris
  • The tale of Isis and Osiris
  • The lament of Isis and Nephthys
  • The battle of Horus and Set
  • The birth of Queen Hatshepsut
  • The tale of the famine
  • The shipwrecked sailor
  • The two brothers
  • The princess and the demon
  • The taking of Joppa
  • Two tales of Setne Khamwas
