Comments for Daughters of Isis

Daughters of Isis: 04/06/05

At the same time that I'm reading the Barbara Mertz book, I'm also reading a more focused and equally fascinating Egyptian history book, Daughters of Isis by Joyce Tyldesley. Tyldesley focuses on the history of Egyptian women and how they were represented in art and writing. She brings into the book many interesting but rather mundane sources — letters by business men, cautionary tales by priests, reports from high society parties, etc. These references create more representative cross section of Egyptian life than the typical book which focuses on Pharaoh and his inner circle.
