Egyptian religion, mythology, magic etc. has long been seen as the origin point for later developments in Western and Middle-eastern cultures. This collection/sequence explores the place of scribes in both Egyptian and post-modern cultures and societies.

This 20 poem collection (part mythic re-imagining) is inspired by primordial (Old, Middle & New Kingdom) and late antique (Alexandrian and Romano) Egyptian understandings of creativity, culture and writing. It shares creative and intellectual terrain with material presented in a public talk for the Philosophy in the Library series, in August 2015. The talk and poetry collection explore the relevance for us today of ancient deities presiding over writing, teaching, healing, libraries, etc. Seshat, Thoth, Ma'at, Hermes/Mercury and Hermes Thrice magestic all feature in these poems. 

See also 'Hypatia and the Ruined Serapeum' at Poetry Life and Times online poetry journal (Spain/UK).
 
This collection is dedicated to the members of my Castlemaine Myths and Symbols and Creativity in Cultural Context students 2015.
