Product Description

Synopsis

This revised edition of Bierce's 1892 collection of "Soldiers" and "Civilians" tales aims to fill a void in American literature. A veteran of the Civil War and a journalist known for his integrity and satire, Bierce was also a short-story writer of considerable depth and power.

About the Author

Ambrose Bierce was an American writer, critic and war veteran. Bierce fought for the Union Army during the American Civil War, eventually rising to the rank of brevet major before resigning from the Army following an 1866 expedition across the Great Plains. Bierce s harrowing experiences during the Civil War, particularly those at the Battle of Shiloh, shaped a writing career that included editorials, novels, short stories and poetry. Among his most famous works are An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge, The Boarded Window, Chickamauga, and What I Saw of Shiloh. While on a tour of Civil-War battlefields in 1913, Bierce is believed to have joined Pancho Villa s army before disappearing in the chaos of the Mexican Revolution.

Format: Paperback
Without doubt, buying this volume won't be a disappointment. Ambrose Bierce is (the) one of America's writers who successfully tried to fill in the void between Poe and H.P. Lovecraft. He's also, perhaps, one of the first surrealists in American literary history since he manages to combine naturalistic description with metaphysical speculation in an unprecedented way. Against the backdrop of America's Civil War, he delineates the destruction of the human body in the face of ulterior forces in a way which is mesmerising and revolting at the same time. This makes him a unique presence in literary history - so don't miss out.
