PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION
In this book A. offers not only an excellent new translation of the Pyramid Texts, but a wholly fresh presentation of this third millennium corpus of funerary rituals and 'spells'. … Much in these texts is very archaic, redolent of recondite mythologies; but they are a formidable mental product in both extent and complexity, given their early date. The extensive and complex offering-ritual elements in particular stand in dramatic contrast with the tiny, brief, primitive rites (of Leviticus, for example) in the biblical corpus of over a millennium later. A.'s work will be an invaluable reference-resource for its subject.--Kenneth A. Kitchen, Journal for the Study of the Old Testament
