History of Egyptian Deities is divided into two parts. The first part is a history book entitled “History of the Gods of Egypt,” and the second part talks about the author’s life, his psychological illness, and his ambiguous relations with everyone around him. The novel is satirical all along, and all events are completely fictional and have nothing to do with reality. The author deals with the personality of the dictator, an absolute ruler, in a comedic manner that is not without depth in an analysis of the strange psyche of this type of personality that we have read about in the history books.
