Julian Garcia and Matthew Wikander discussed "The Tale of Sinuhe" at the Toledo Museum of Art.
The Tale of Sinuhe (about 1875 B.C.) has been acclaimed as the masterpiece of ancient Egyptian poetry. A perfect fusion of lyrical styles and a passionate probing of its culture’s ideals and anxieties in the form of a funerary autobiography, the story tells how the courtier Sinuhe flees Egypt upon the death of his king.
