Rezension bezieht sich auf: Middle Egyptian: An Introduction to the Language and Culture of Hieroglyphs (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This is the best introduction to Middle Egyptian Available. Written well and easy to follow. this book is for the serious student as well as the amateur. This Book has been waited on by Egyptologists as a source to teach students and is being used to that end. I have Gardiner's work Middle Egyptian Grammar, it is so much more difficult to get a grasp on Hieroglyphs than James P. Allen's Work that it isn't even comparable! Anyone wanting to learn Middle Egyptian, This Is THE Book! don't let anybody tell you differently. Hieroglyphs aren't easy to learn. this is a fact because of so many signs etc. It isn't going to be a walk through the park. that's a fact! there isn't an easy way to learn Hieroglyphs! but this book makes it as easy as it has ever been using any book presently published! The writers insight is wonderful and informative, as well as modern! using all present archeology and conclusions to introduce the student to the exciting world of the Egyptians. i can't recommend this book highly enough! enjoy! and thank you James P. Allen! your efforts are appreciated! this book beats all others. if you want one book to teach you Hieroglyphs, this is it! don't waste your time or money on any other! note: this refers to the paperback version. although this book is good enough to buy the Hardback.
