Hana Navratilova, Renata Landgrafova, Sex and the Golden Goddess I, Ancient Egyptian Love Songs in Context, Prague 2009
The complete collection of ancient Egyptian love songs, whose texts were first written down in the Ramesside period, is treated in the context of other period sources regarding intimacy and sexuality. The process of gendering and socialising in relation to sexuality is also introduced. The volume will also contain overview tables - ostraca or papyri, their site(s), documentation, publications, etc. Statistics or quantification of some lexical and semantic units in the songs is attempted. The volume consists of an introductory study and commented texts of the songs, grouped thematically.
