About The Devil’s Dictionary:

Originally entitled “The Cynic’s Word Book”, this justly infamous volume was re-titled “The Devil’s Dictionary” in 1911 and addressed to ‘enlightened souls who prefer dry wines to sweet, sense to sentiment, wit to humour, and clean English to slang. Bierce’s ironic definitions ring as true today as when they were first coined.
