Access from EThOS:
The nature of the Egyptian texts has been understood as pure written compositions - written to be read privately or quietly such as novels in modern societies - for many years. They, however, seem to contain an oral context, which appeal as a verbal art. The relationship between an action (performance) and speech was fundamental in culture, where literature was orally performed. Words can be an action in themselves during performance.
