Bierce, Ambrose - The Devil's Dictionary - ( Item 116767 )

Published in London by Folio Society. 2004. Reprint. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Good+ slipcase. Some marks to panels of slipcase. Introduction by Miles Kington. Illustrated by Peter Forster. "Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce (June 24, 1842 after December 26, 1913) was an American editorialist, journalist, short story writer, fabulist and satirist. Today, he is best known for his short story, "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" and his satirical lexicon, The Devil's Dictionary. The sardonic view of human nature that informed his work along with his vehemence as a critic, with his motto "nothing matters" earned him the nickname "Bitter Bierce." Despite his reputation as a searing critic, however, Bierce was known to encourage younger writers, including poet George Sterling and fiction writer W. C. Morrow.
