    PDF/EPUB Dorothy Porter Î Akhenaten Kindle ✓ Î akhenaten book, Akhenaten MOBII like poetry but it really depends on the style and what the author is trying to convey as to whether I will enjoy it Considering my rating it is easy to guess that I did not like the author's style or what she conveyed Granted Akhenaten was likely a megalomaniac I mean he started a singular deity religion in Ancient Egypt of all places And yes many royal families throughout history including AE had incest and twisted family lines But holy shit the way in which Porter wrote it all was disturbing I can only imagine the faces I was making throughout the poems which were crude and disturbed It wasn't just merely the sex with his daughters vomit that was detailed it was also the scenes between Akhenaten and Nefertiti Porter's choice of vulgar language on top of an already disturbed focal character of Akhenaten was simply over the top and turned me off entirely And on top of all this I did not find the poetry itself to be an

    PDF/EPUB Dorothy Porter Î Akhenaten Kindle ✓ Î akhenaten book, Akhenaten MOBIA very character driven novel with Porter's typical forays into sensuality and there's plenty of that with this pharaoh the one who briefly brought monotheism to the land of Egypt Porter does an amazing job of including completely self contained poems to forward her novel's plotline in this particular novel it's of a timeline following Akhenaten's life but still maintaining a pull especially in the latter half of the novel Akhenaten may be as well known for his wife and first cousin Nefertiti See spell check didn't underline her name I highly recommend at least one Porter novel in verse just to give yourself a change I am troubled that her works are mostly out of print Maybe I could crowd source and publish at least her verse novels

    PDF/EPUB Dorothy Porter Î Akhenaten Kindle ✓ Î akhenaten book, Akhenaten MOBIMy least favourite Porter verse novel so far mostly because the character was so repulsive Not sure if I’d give it 2 or 3 stars but the research and the poetry led me closer to 3

    PDF/EPUB Dorothy Porter Î Akhenaten Kindle ✓ Î akhenaten book, Akhenaten MOBII first read Porter for a university subject and I loved the visceral rawness and the sensuality of her poetry in The Monkey's Mask Since then I've been collecting her five verse novels I am a sucker for both Ancient Egypt and free verse poetry so this was a wonderful book to readPorter uses a number of poems to tell of Akhenaten's obsessive love for Aten his heretical decisions to oust the rest of the Egyptian pantheon his love of Nefertiti and for his children By the end of the novel his obsession has soured everything he touches and everything he has loved leading to incest androgyny and failure as the Hittites advance Porter claimed that Akenaten got under her skin and refused to let her go By the last poem

    PDF/EPUB Dorothy Porter Î Akhenaten Kindle ✓ Î akhenaten book, Akhenaten MOBIThis was the first verse novel I had ever read as a fresh faced 18 year old at Newcastle University Australia in the mid 2000's This work sunk under my skin the words never left me; Porter became something of a literary hero of mine after this and I sometimes find myself rereading portions of this book all these years later since it reminds me rather strangely of the sameness of humanity even across millennia and even when shrouded in strange ways of being
