En l’an 2230 avant J.-C., le pharaon Pépi règne sur l’Égypte. À la cour de Memphis se côtoient les grands dignitaires, les prêtres, les savants. Et dans le gynécée bruissent les étoffes des épouses et des concubines. C’est dans ce contexte historique qu’apparaît la spectaculaire princesse Nitocris, aux cheveux d’or et au teint de rose. Une enfant dont chacun admire la beauté et la force de caractère. Nitocris est la jeune sœur du prince Mérenrê, auquel elle voue une véritable passion. Ensemble, ils parcourent la campagne, sillonnent incognito la ville royale, chassent dans le désert et pêchent au bord du Nil. Mais cette tendresse qui les unit finit peu à peu par les exclure. Lentement, irrémédiablement, la jalousie, la calomnie creusent leur sillon. Dans l’entourage du roi, dans sa propre famille, au sein du haut clergé, on conspire, on manigance. Et Pharaon doit préparer sa succession. Qui montera sur le trône ? Le courageux Mérenrê, fils de la première épouse royale Neit, ou le prince Khenou, poussé par sa mère, la seconde et redoutable épouse Ipout ? En attendant de régner, Mérenrê s’initie à la conduite des affaires du royaume. Aimante, présente et attentive, Nitocris l’accompagne de ses conseils et se prépare, elle aussi, à son destin de reine. Mais dans l’ombre, le drame se noue. Dans les plaines d’Égypte, la grande inondation du Nil se fait attendre et les signes néfastes s’accumulent. Le peuple, manipulé par d’habiles stratèges, commence à gronder...

Sought, the Sphinx seems everywhere, whether the guardian of the pyramids on Egypt's Giza plateau or the beautiful man-eater with a deadly riddle, to be approached with awful caution. The Sphinx, that icon painted, sculpted, engraved, and exalted in poetry, fiction, and music, so impressed the philosopher Hegel that he pronounced the creature “the symbol of the symbolic itself.” With a wealth of illustrations, Book of the Sphinx confirms Hegel's lofty judgment, finding the Sphinx everywhere: in tragedies, paintings, opera, murder mysteries, brothels, bars, and advertisements. Pursuing the Sphinx through kaleidoscopic sightings and encyclopedic observations, Willis Goth Regier plumbs the symbol's mysteries, conducting the reader down ever more perplexing and intriguing paths. Wonderfully readable, his highly idiosyncratic tour of the ages and the arts leads at last to a conception of the Sphinx that embraces nothing less than all that is unknowable—proving once again that confronting a Sphinx is one of the most dangerous and exhilarating adventures of the imagination.

1895 London is scared. A killer haunts the city's streets; the poor are hungry; crime bosses are taking control; the police force is stretched to the breaking point. The rich turn to Sherlock Holmes, but the celebrated private detective rarely visits the densely populated streets of South London, where the crimes are sleazier and the people are poorer. In the dark corner of Southwark, victims turn to a man who despises Holmes, his wealthy clientele and his showy forensic approach to crime: Arrowood—self-taught psychologist, occasional drunkard and private investigator. When a man mysteriously disappears and Arrowood's best lead is viciously stabbed before his eyes, he and his sidekick Barnett face their toughest quest yet: to capture the head of the most notorious gang in London… In the bestselling tradition of Anthony Horowitz and Andrew Taylor, this gloriously dark crime debut will haunt readers long after the final page has been turned.

This volume contains the papers of the 'Seventh Groningen Workshop on Hellenistic Poetry: Beyond the Canon' (Groningen 2004). During the workshop a first draft of each of the papers was commented on by an international group of specialists in the field of Hellenistic poetry. A number of previous workshops was devoted largely to the major Hellenistic poets. This recent workshop explores what the poets 'beyond the canon' of Callimachus, Theocritus and Apollonius Rhodius had to offer and it discussed questions of canonicity in Hellenistic poetry on a more general level. The papers in the present volume deal with a large range of authors and genres: Herondas, Lycophron, Euphorion, Hermesianax, Cercidas, Crates of Thebes and Alexander Aetolus, and the didactic poetry of Aratus, Nicander and Ps.-Scymnus, the later bucolic poems of Moschus and Bion and the pattern poems of Simias. At the same time special attention is given to the hexameter in inscribed Hellenistic epigram, which is compared to that of poets in the environment of the Museum of Alexandria. This volume is part of a series. Every two years a 'Workshop on Hellenistic Poetry' takes place at the University of Groningen, the papers of which are published in 'Hellenistica Groningana'.

The ancient Greek poet Homer tells of the wealthy city of Troy and its defeat in the Trojan War. Since the classical period there has been much debate about whether this is a poetic fiction or a memory of historical reality. Earlier excavations at the hill of Hisarlik, in Turkey, brought no answer, but in 1988 new excavations, under the direction of Manfred Korfmann, led to a radical shift in understanding. In this book Joachim Latacz, one of Korfmann's closest collaborators, shows how this new research has shed light on what is now known about Troy and the Trojan War.
