The Devil’s Dictionary

Posted by maribel on 15/03/2011

The Devil’s Dictionary is a  “reference” book written by Ambrose Bierce. The book offers satirical reinterpretations of terms in the English language.

Carlos Fuentes’s novel The Old Gringo is a fictionalized account of Bierce’s disappearance towards the end of his life which was later adapted into the film Old Gringo (1989), starring Gregory Peck in the title role.
