What is at stake in literature? Can we identify the fire that our stories have lost, but that they strive, at all costs, to rediscover? And what is the philosopher's stone that writers, with the passion of alchemists, struggle to forge in their word furnaces? For Giorgio Agamben, who suggests that the parable is the secret model of all narrative, every act of creation tenaciously resists creation, thereby giving each work its strength and grace. The ten essays brought together here cover works by figures ranging from Aristotle to Paul Klee and illustrate what urgently drives Agamben's current research. As is often the case with his writings, their especial focus is the mystery of literature, of reading and writing, and of language as a laboratory for conceiving an ethico-political perspective that places us beyond sovereign power.

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.
