“With a brilliant combination of literary criticism, cultural history, and linguistic expertise, Morrow  (The Names of Things)  provides a dazzling new translation of the hieroglyphs of the pyramid of Unis (built in 2323 B.C.E.)  as well as a detailed and thoughtful guide to interpreting hieroglyphs and understanding the culture that produced them. Though others have translated the so-called Pyramid Texts,  Morrow points out that they miss much of the poetry and meaning because they rely on Western notions of Egyptian religion and art…  Most translations misinterpret the Pyramid Texts  to be the stories of animals and gods, but Morrow’s translation and interpretation reveal them to be an examination of the ways in which humanity is deeply embedded in the cosmic.”
