King of Egypt, King of Dreams
By (author) Gwendolyn MacEwen
King of Egypt, King of Dreams by Gwendolyn MacEwen
Book DescriptionMacEwen sets out to write a deeply serious novel that also functions as entertaining historical fiction. The novel's hero is Akhenaton, Pharaoh of Egypt's Eighteenth Dynasty, who was the first ruler to introduce the idea of monotheism. Akhenaton's single-mindedness in his quest for his own brand of reason is a powerfully paradoxical distillation of the artistic temperament: originality, fertility and beauty set against death and despair and an inability to love. Includes an Afterword by the author's sister.
