Annotation

An incomparable satirist, the author became the “laughing devil” of the San Francisco news media, for he was about as discreet as a runaway locomotive, according to H L Mencken. This dictionary presents his uninhibited irony and gift for verse parody.

Publisher Description

Author Biography

AMBROSE BIERCE (1842-1913) American satirist, critic, short story writer, editor and journalist. He is perhaps most famous for his serialized mock lexicon, THE DEVIL'S DICTIONARY in which, over the years, he scathed American culture and accepted wisdom by pointing out alternate, more practical definitions for common words.
