Description : Gabriel Garcia Marquez, winner of the 1982 Nobel Prize for Literature and author of One Hundred Years of Solitude, started his literary career with the publication of The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor . . . 'On February 22 we were told that we would be returning to Columbia' In 1955 eight crew members of Caldas, a Colombian destroyer, were swept overboard. Velasco alone survived, drifting on a raft for ten days without food or water. Marquez retells the survivor's amazing tale of endurance, from his loneliness and thirst to his determination to survive. The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor was Marquez's first major work, published in a Colombian newspaper, El Espectador, in 1955 and then in book form in 1970. 'The story of Velasco on his raft, his battle with sharks over a succulent fish, his hallucinations, his capture of a seagull which he was unable to eat, his subsequent droll rescue, has all the grip of archetypal myth. Reads like an epic' Independent 'A master storyteller' Daily Mail 'Garcia Marquez is a retailer of wonders' Sunday Times

Description : Translated by Randolph Hogan. In 1955, Garcia Marquez was working for El Espectador, a newspaper in Bogota, when in February of that year eight crew members of the Caldas, a Colombian destroyer, were washed overboard and disappeared. Ten days later one of them turned up, barely alive, on a deserted beach in northern Colombia. This book, which originally appeared as a series of newspaper articles, is Garcia Marquez's account of that sailor's ordeal. "A luminous narrative that rivals the most remarkable stories of man's struggles against the sea."--Philadelphia Inquirer

Description : This story is based on one found on a papyrus scroll of hieroglyphs from the nineteenth century B.C., Egypt. It tells the tale of a voyage on the Red Sea to a mysterious and enchanted land of riches located south of Egypt. On his way to the King's gold mines, a sailor is shipwrecked on a magic island, the Island of the Soul. Not long after he arrives, a gigantic serpent with scales of gold appears and reveals to the sailor that he is the Prince of Punt, and is also a lone survivor. The two become good friends, but one day a ship comes to rescue the sailor. Bearing gifts from the Prince, the sailor returns to Egypt with full hands, and a full heart. This is a tale of the surprising (and fortuitous) bonds that unite us, and of the good that comes to us when we least expect it. Tamara Bower's lush illustrations are rendered in Egyptian style, and phrases from the story appear in hieroglyphs with their literal translations.

Description : The Middle Kingdom (c.1940-1649 BC) was the golden age of Egyptian fictional literature. The Tale of Sinuhe, acclaimed as the masterpiece of Egyptian poetry, tells of a courtier's adventures after he flees Egypt, his failure to find a meaningful life abroad, and his eventual return to thesecurity of his homeland. Other works include stories of fantastic wonders from the court of the builder of the Great Pyramid, a lyrical dialogue between a man and his soul on the nature of death and the problem of suffering, and Teachings about the nature of virtue and wisdom, one of which isbitterly spoken from the grave by the assassinated king Amenemhat I, founder of the Twelfth Dynasty. These new translations draw on recent advances in Egyptology. A general introduction discusses the historical context, the nature of poetry, and the role of literature in ancient Egyptian culture. A full set of notes explicates allusions, details of mythology, place-names, and the like. Theyprovide, for the first time, a literary reading to enable these poems, aimed to speak to the future, to entertain and instruct the modern reader, as they did their original audiences three-and-a-half thousand years ago.

Description : The Egyptian tales witness to some of the great moments in the history of Egyptian literature and represent the earliest beginnings in world literature. Many literary critics do not seem to know the importance of Egyptian prose tales told for entertainment (including C. S. Lewis, who does not know that the "marvelous that knows itself as myth" was alive and well by 1800 BCE). Unlike some other ancient states, both Israel and Egypt wrote epic tales in prose. And these great prose stories are important for the study of the Hebrew Bible. Some of the most exciting narrative prose parallels to the Hebrew Bible are found in the stories from Egypt. The details may vary, but in the setting, the purpose, the vocabulary, and the genre of the stories, one can find many similarities.

Description : Ancient Egypt has a rich tradition of stories and proverbs, recorded by scribes. This book raises these stories from the dust, and presents obscure ancient texts in a readable form. The selections date from the Old Kingdom to medieval times, the majority being based on religious themes. There are many surprising new texts here, but some of the themes seem familiar: the creation myth of Memphis theology is similar to the bible while 'The Capture of Joppa' is an older version of 'Ali Baba'.
