"The Bitter Bierce". Siegeszug der zynischen Vernunft Der amerikanische Schriftsteller Ambrose Bierce (1842-Weihnachten/Neujahr 1913/14) hatte nicht nur eine scharfe Zunge, sondern auch eine spitze Feder. Er war einer der schillerndsten Gestalten im literarischen Amerika des 19. Jahrhunderts - die personifizierte Provokation und ein gehässiger Zyniker, der kein Thema ausließ. Ganz gleich, ob es um allgemeine, kleine oder große Schwächen des Menschengeschlechts ging - seinem Hohn war nichts heilig. Berühmt wurde er mit seinem "Wörterbuch des Teufels", einer Sammlung galliger und pointiert-geistreicher Aphorismen.
