DEVIL’S DICTIONARY is widely regarded as one of the greatest masterpieces of American literature. It’s a truly unique work of disullusion, by a man who had seen it all.
The author: AMBROSE BIERCE is one of the darkest yet most brilliant figures in American literature. ” Bitter Bierce,” who once started as an idealistic young man, turned into one of the greatest cynics of all time due to his traumatic experiences in the American Civil War. His personal life saw his rise to literary and journalistic superstardom, his descent to the status of a homeless vagabond, but also his resurrection as a celebrated but feared star columnist and author.
