    Ambrose Bierce

    Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce 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 Devils 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.

    Bierce employed a distinctive style of writing, especially in his stories. This style often embraces an abrupt beginning, dark imagery, vague references to time, limited descriptions, the theme of war, and impossible events.

    Bierce disappeared in December 1913. He is believed to have traveled to Mexico to gain a firsthand perspective on that countrys ongoing revolution.
