Song of Meri-Khem is in FULL COLOUR!!!Judith Page is what the great Omm Sety would have called: 'One of the real ones...' When she evokes the inner realms, be assured that she does so as a seasoned traveller within them. In writing this poem she has attempted to cut through so much of what we now think of as Ancient Egypt, and only the bare bones will remain. Symbolic figureheads such as Osiris and Amon will be discussed, but not elevated. This will not be a book for those who wish to play tourist, dropping off here for a quick sensation, or stopping there for an imagined photo-shoot, it will be an experience for al those who wish to embrace the origin and notion of Set, and Set's values. In recording the mythical life of Set, Judith has applauded him. The strength and warmth of his intellect demand similar warmth in his dramatic performance throughout ancient Egyptian history. To adopt an attitude of detachment, particularly towards the ancient and unknown, can bar from sight those many scenes glimpsed by the historian who approaches the role of reconstructing an era with sympathy, insight and understanding. Neither the truth nor the equilibrium of scholarship is disturbed by controlled imagination and honest praise of this much-maligned Egyptian god. Judith is portraying the mythological concept and personality of Set not in order to worship a hero, but to recognise him as a leader and a hero. Set strives to take his stand against 5,000 years of a 'drift of history' with the introduction of Osireion and Amonite tradition, and a preconditioning before being replaced by Christianity.
