About the Author

Ambrose Bierce was a brilliant, bitter, and cynical journalist. He is also the author of several collections of ironic epigrams and at least one powerful story, "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge." Bierce was born in Ohio, where he had an unhappy childhood. He served in the Union army during the mostrar mais Civil War. Following the war, he moved to San Francisco, where he worked as a columnist for the newspaper the Examiner, for which he wrote a number of satirical sketches. Bierce wrote a number of horror stories, some poetry, and countless essays. He is best known, however, for The Cynic's Word Book (1906), retitled The Devil's Dictionary in 1911, a collection of such cynical definitions as "Marriage: the state or condition of a community consisting of a master, a mistress, and two slaves, making in all, two." Bierce's own marriage ended in divorce, and his life ended mysteriously. In 1913, he went to Mexico and vanished, presumably killed in the Mexican revolution. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Bierce was a working journalist as well as a short story author, so all that scope comes in this single volume compendium. It holds up very well for Bierce was a writer I have always admired.

When an author has only a brief period of notice then vanishes when he fails to measure up to the likes of Longfellow, Melville, or O Henry, there are several reasons for this. Bierce who served as a Union soldier during the Civil War was deeply impacted by the war. With an already morose personality before the war, his experiences deepened a pessimistic outlook on life. Hence all of his stories reflected the pessimism. His work enjoyed a brief window of fame then flamed out & forgotten except for a few who favored his work. Poe remained above him on a far longer stage even though Poe's work was similar in genre. It is noted that the satire of the Devils Dictionary is rich with innuendo & his memoirs of his Union soldier days remain relevant. The rest sadly has sunk to obscurity. At least, LOA has preserved much of Bierce's work.… (mais)
