Tales of soldiers and civilians by Ambrose Bierce( Book )
3 editions published in 1927 in English and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This revised edition of Ambrose Bierce's 1892 collections of Soldiers and Civilians tales fills a void in American literature. A veteran of the Civil War and a journalist known for his integrity and biting satire, Ambrose Bierce was also a lively short-story writer of considerable depth and power. As San Francisco's most famous journalist during the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, Bierce was hired by William Randolph Hearst to write a column for the San Francisco Examiner, where his Soldiers and Civilians tales first appeared during the late 1880s. During the post-Civil War years, Bierce recognized the growing nationalism in America and the increasing glorification of war heroes and soldiers. In response, he wrote his Soldiers tales. Although he was a Civil War veteran, Bierce had been a civilian for more than twenty years when he began to write the bulk of the nineteen tales that comprised his 1892 collection. Thus, the Civilians tales were written as a counterpoint to the preceding war stories. Bierce's intent was to explore the complex interconnections between soldiers and civilians. He recognized in Tales of Soldiers and Civilians that war and peace together comprise an interacting harmony. By the standards of his day and ours, Bierce's journalism was often brilliantly insightfully, viciously libelous, petty, and grand, frequently in the space of a single paragraph. This edition reveals the often compelling artistry of Bierce's original versions of the tales and the intentionally intricate design and scope of the original collection

From Baltimore to Bohemia : the letters of H.L. Mencken and George Sterling by H. L Mencken( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"H. L. Mencken was one of the most prolific letter-writers in American literature, and many of his letters were written to fellow authors. Aside from those to Theodore Dreiser, few of these letters have been published. This volume presents the joint correspondence of Mencken and George Sterling, an unjustly forgotten California poet who, under the initial tutelage of Ambrose Bierce, gained celebrity for such volumes as The Testimony of the Suns (1903) and A Wine of Wizardry (1909). The correspondence of H.L. Mencken and George Sterling - by turns amusing, outrageous, and illuminating - casts a vivid light into the literary, social, and cultural milieu of the Jazz Age, as seen through the eyes of two of its most distinctive figures."--Jacket
