Description
Akhenaten was a fascinating, shadowy figure in Egyptian history - archaeologists have discovered attempts to eradicate all traces of his brief reign, but enough remains to tell a remarkable story of incest, heresy, androgyny and a massive cult of personality. Like Albert Camus' celebrated Caligula, Dorothy Porter's Akhenaten is an attractive warped megalomaniac who attempted to construct an heretical religion around one Sun God, with himself at the centre. 'Akhenaten' is a novel in verse that captures the obsessive, erotic nature of its central figure. It is a towering achievement.
