Tales of Soldiers and Civilians by Ambrose Bierce

Book Description

Questing after Pancho Villa's revolutionary forces, Ambrose Bierce rode into Mexico in 1913 and was never seen again. He left behind him the"Devil's Dictionary"and a remarkable body of short fiction.This new collection gathers some of Bierce's finest stories, including the celebrated Civil War fictions '"An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge"' and '"Chickamauga"', his macabre masterpieces, and his tales of supernatural horror.Reminiscent of Poe, these stories are marked by a sardonic humour and a realistic study of tense emotional states. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust theseries to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-datetranslations by award-winning translators."

Books By Author Ambrose Bierce

Monk and the Hangman's Daughter by Ambrose Bierce Monk and the Hangman's Daughter, Paperback (March 2012)

Allegedly a rewriting from a lost German original, Ambrose Bierce's 1892 novel reads as a seamless, almost folktale-like masterpiece.

Devil's Dictionary by Ambrose Bierce Devil's Dictionary, Paperback (July 2011)

Complete and unabridged, this paperback gift edition of an American humor classic presents more than 1,000 comic definitions praised by H. L. Mencken as "some of the most gorgeous witticisms in the English language."

Write it Right by Ambrose Bierce Write it Right, Paperback (January 2009)

Amusing A-to-Z compendium by a celebrated literary wit outlines common gaffes. Times and usages have changed, rendering this 1909 volume a fascinating historical curiosity rather than a guide for modern writers.
