AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Thomas Keneally has brought a novelist's insight to a familiar story, and has fashioned a spare and moving narrative. He chronicles the corrupt brilliance of the Egyptian court, the misery of the slave camps and, most powerfully, the fears that confront the Israelites when they exchange their bonds for the freedom to make the trek across Sinai...At the heart of the narrative is the enigmatic figure of Moses; the story of his origin as tribesman and Egyptian Prince, and the events which led finally to his becoming leader of the Israelites'. (Source: dustjacket, 1975 Collins edition)

Notes

  • Based on the British television series Moses the Lawgiver, for which Anthony Burgess wrote the script.
