Description
 
Ambrose Bierce (au). A hilarious selection from the celebrated “Devil’s Dictionary,” the comic masterpiece in which Bierce unveils the true meaning of many everyday words. He began this dictionary in an American weekly paper in 1881, & it rapidly gained renown. Bierce looked at the foibles & weaknesses of humanity with a piercing & unforgiving eye, & addressed his dictionary to those enlightened souls who prefer sense to sentiment, wit to humor, & clean English to slang. This book presents, in a very creative & artistic format, a selection from “The Devil’s Dictionary.” Bierce entertained & disturbed turn-of-the-last century America with uncomfortable ideas & a rapier-sharp prose style.  Beautifully designed!
