Il s'agit des plus anciens témoignages authentiques qui nous sont parvenus. Découverts il y a plus d'un siècle, les voici réunis pour l. a. première fois dans une anthologie en français. remark n'être pas fasciné : c'est un héritage direct du temps des pharaons qu'ils nous transmettent !
Entièrement traduits et présentés par Régis Burnet, ces extraordinaires papyrus révèlent une vie surprenante. Loin du ton parfois pompeux des œuvres littéraires, ils nous montrent des hommes de chair et de sang dans leurs préoccupations concrètes et les mille et uns secrets and techniques de leur life quotidienne. Ainsi, mieux qu'à travers tous les récits et les reconstitutions, souvent sujets à warning, le naturel de leurs voix étrangement proches et vibrantes, comme si elles s'adressaient à nous, témoigne en direct et sans emphase de l'intemporalité de l'esprit humain.
