From chat-up lines to royal tragedies, the poems of the Middle Kingdom display a remarkable range of style and tone, and are characterised by a strikingly personal voice. Prof Richard Parkinson’s illustrated talk will highlight some of the best known works from the golden age of Ancient Egyptian writing (c.1850-1650 BCE) and suggest ways of engaging with these highly passionate and enduring works.
