4.0 étoiles sur 5 Focus on Horemheb 9 avril 2010
Par D. Young - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have often felt it unfair when Egyptologists create stories about important figures in Egypt when there is no evidence to support it. Certainly, the "Amarna" era has its share of these stories. I tend to resist the extreme stories (ie Tutankhamun was murdered, Hatshepsut was an evil queen/king).

HOREMHEB: The Forgotten Pharaoh focuses on the information that is actually known about this man and doesn't write in bitter political rivalry and intrigue without evidence. Happily there is a great deal of information I haven't found in other discussions of Horemheb and other associated figures of the Amarna period.

I have read many books on ancient Egypt, some are disappointing. I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in Egypt and/or seeking details on this particular king. The stages in Horemheb's career are covered in detail. I found it of interest that later in his life before he became king, he was the one who was called to the palace when the king and/or royal family was in hysterical uproar and restored calm "with his voice." He seems to have been a wise man loyal to Egypt, a skilled general and administrator. A non-royal he put Egypt in order after the royal family of the 18th Dynasty died out with Tutankhamun and established a new dynasty, the 19th, by naming Ramesses I, the head of a capable family, as his successor and ushering in a renewed era in Egypt.

Can you tell I liked the book?

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not The Last Word 24 mai 2010
Par William Suddaby - Publié sur Amazon.com
Charlotte Booth is to be commended for bringing together the wealth of surviving information relating to one of Egypt's important, but neglected, pharaohs. That said, it should be noted that Booth tends to charge off into scenarios which other historians might seriously question. She has a definite idea of her subject and is adept at weaving the sometimes puzzling evidence into a validation of her view. Unfortunately--and not at all the fault of the author--the beginning chapters are already out-dated in light of recent results from DNA tests on Amarna royal mummies. "Horemheb The Forgotten Pharoah" still has much to recommend it, even if in this reviewer's opinion it should be read with a healthy dose of questioning. For a more measured account of the reign of Horemheb see chapter seven in Aidan Dodson's "Amarna Sunset."

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Horemheb's not forgotten and is probably spinning in his grave 23 mai 2013
Par lucaslavia - Publié sur Amazon.com
I once wrote an undergraduate dissertation on Horemheb, this seemed remarkably similar. To extend it to a book she has padded around the thesis, the marginally more presentable work, with speculations about childhood in Egypt and the education of scribes - even in these spurious anecdotes there is very little interaction with either primary or secondary material. There is no evidence that she has had more than a cursory glance at Hari's seminal publication on Horemheb and, even given an extra 45 years worth of theoretical progression in the field, scholarship and archaeological evidence, this work comes up short.

If her aim is produce an accessible book for a wide audience then it is a little dull, offers no way in to the subject and fails completely in creating a context for her character 'Horemheb'.

If her aim is produce a scholarly work for more informed readers and Egyptologists then she would do well to acknowledge recent digs in Horemheb's Memphite tomb by Van Waslem, spot the difference between his multiple scribal statues rather than just assuming they are all the same one and cut out everything speculative about his upbringing and childhood, this is fiction.

It is at least presented nicely and its rare to find such a specific book at such a reasonable price but I would sooner recommend Dodson's Amarna Sunset for a more concise and less sensational perspective.

From the Kindle version: "His father died when Thutmosis III was still an infant, and therefore unable to rule independently. A marriage was arranged between his father's widow, his stepmother and aunt, Hatshepsut."

So Thutmosis III married Hatshepsut? What?

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not so impressive as R. Hari's wonderful book... 9 mai 2011

Not so impressive as R. Hari's wonderful book about Horemheb & Mutnodjemet. A lot of general information available everywhere. Terrible drawings, very inaccurate, by the author. So, usual student's work of normal quality for this level, but not to the book or PhD.
