Odd Dictionaries and Alphabets
Ambrose Bierce and Others
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
This volume, the third in Aftermath’s series on dictionaries, contains four complete works. These complete works are:
The Devil’s Dictionary, by Ambrose Bierce The Foolish Dictionary, by Wallace Goldsmith, writing as Gideon Wurdz 3. Women and the Alphabet, by Thomas Wentworth Higginson
The Anti-Slavery Alphabet, by anonymous.
The Devil’s Dictionary is probably the most famous work here, reflecting the unusual humor of Ambrose Bierce. The Foolish Dictionary is in the same vein, as is Thomas Wentworth Higginson’s Women and the Alphabet.
The Anti-Slavery Alphabet reflects a different view of the world, written at a time when slavery was all too rampant in the United States.
