The Rise and Fall of Ancient Egypt by Toby Wilkinson.

Shelley never traveled to Egypt and thus certainly never saw the landscape he describes in his sonnet. Like Herodotus' Histories, these two books are literary compilations, rather than simple records or observations, and as such they quite rightly include fictional elements. Contrary to popular belief, moreover, he likewise never saw the sculptured head allegedly described in the sonnet, which did not arrive in England until a day or two after he and his family had moved permanently to Italy and more than six months after he had published the poem.
MAX RODENBECK began writing for The Economist in 1989 . He has been chief Middle East correspondent since 2000, covering the region from Morocco to Iran, and topics ranging from wars in Iraq and Lebanon to radical Islam, Arabic pop culture and the ancient art of distilling arak.
