    1. What matters than my being buriedin the land where I was born The Tale of Sinuhe, dated to the 19th century BCE, is generally considered the finest prose of Egypt s Middle Kingdom I m not sure why Is it because we ve found no better prose from that era That or it s the only story which isn t just shameless propaganda or magic voodoo The tale is a first person account of an Egyptian aristocrat Sinuhe who, while on campaign in Libya, flees to Syria when the Pharaoh dies He s worried there will be [...]

    2. The tale of Sinuhe seems to me like a classic life lesson to be learned.In the text, Sinuhe leaves Egypt on an expedition only later to hear that the King has been assassinated He flees in fear for his life and takes refuge in the Arab regions east of Egypt Although he works his way up and becomes successful since he is educated, it seemed he was never as happy as he could be while living in Egypt It is said he wanted to die and be buried in Egypt This text hits home with me I come from a family [...]

    3. This is a beautiful story of an Egyptian courtier, loved by the royal family, who flies when he hears the king had died, even though no accusations are made and he has nothing to do with it He winds up in Syria with the hill folk After a while he becomes the trustee of the king over there, becomes head of clan, has children, and prospers In old age, he returns to Egypt, a tad scared about how the court will receive him.It was smitten by it This piece of personal writing from the 18th century BC.

    4. This story to me at first was not so appealing However, upon closer examination it seemed there was to the tale of Sinuhe then I first realized Sinuhe was an apparently strong, virtuous character that strived against all odds to find himself rise literally from a exiled soldier, to an accomplished warrior and leader of great lands It was not, however, his leadership skills that were of interest but of the mystery surrounding his reason to flee in the first place Once I pondered upon this, the s [...]

    5. This is an interesting story Sinuhe has a lot in common with Moses he seems to belong in the Pharaoh s palace, and there is rejoicing when he comes back to Egypt after fleeing and spending long years in other countries But instead of having a mission and a people to save, Sinuhe is a good Egyptian, and just wants to die peacefully in his homeland So everything goes smoothly for him.

    6. So many questions What did Sinuhe overhear that made him run away Or was that an excuse, did he really participate in the plot to assassinate the Pharaoh If so, why did the new Pharaoh welcome Sinuhe back I enjoyed the story very much even with all of my questions.

    7. Interesting enough as a portrayal of what was important at this time in Egypt I also can see the similarities it has to some stories from the bible, but overall it was intriguing than good.
