Resources on Ancient Diaries
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I am trying to do some research into the origins of personal diaries and
journals, particularly what might have existed or still survive from the pre-
classical world (ancient Near East as well as ancient Egypt, India and
China) and the insights they give into non-formal language: idiomatic,
colloquial and slang.
I am finding it very difficult to find appropriate material (I am assuming
some form of diaries must have existed in these societies) and wonder if
anyone knows of relevant studies or specialists.
