Kasia Szpakowska (ed.), Through A Glass Darkly: Magic, Dreams and Prophesy in Ancient Egypt.   Swansea:  The Classical Press of Wales, 2006.  Pp. 274.  ISBN 1-905125-08-9.  $90.00.

Recent years have seen a profusion of academic inquiry into aspects of ancient Egyptian magic.1 However, more remains to be clarified, particularly with respect to the function and implementation of Egyptian magic through time and across social strata. In addition, new texts and objects utilized in magical rites are constantly being identified. Through a Glass Darkly: Magic, Dreams and Prophesy in Ancient Egypt is therefore a welcome addition to our growing corpus of scholarly material on ancient Egyptian magic, offering fresh perspectives on some well-known texts and artifacts, as well as new sources for the study of Egyptian magic, dreams, and prophesy.

I am the Goddess of Who I can Become. I mix the magic of the sorceress with the blade of a warrior. I walk the liminal pathways to see the face of the Goddess, both terrible and kind. As She stares back at me, I tremble in awe and ecstasy.  --Me
