Amrose Bierce’in ‘Şeytanın Sözlüğü’, eşi benzeri olmayan bir kitap.
Bierce burada, insanın değer dünyasında yer etmiş kavramları, birer birer tersyüz eder ve bizi ezberlerimizle, klişelerimizle yüz yüze bırakır.
İşte bu güzel kitap da, ‘Şeytanın Sözlüğü’nden en iyi nüktelerden ve maddelerden bir seçme sunuyor.
Bierce’in o özgün zihnine yeniden inmek, yaşadığımız dünyanın tuhaf kanun, görenek ve değerlerine başka bir gözle bakmak için çok güzel bir fırsat.

An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge and Other Stories by Ambrose Bierce. Introduction by S.T. Joshi. Published by Tartarus Press.
Perhaps best known as a journalist and the author of the sardonic The Devil's Dictionary, Bierce ranks alongside Poe as one of the fathers of American supernatural fiction.
As a young man he served in the Federal army during the American Civil war, participating in some of the most horrific battles, and this closeness to the horrors and excitement of war informed both his famed cynicism and his fiction. As S.T. Joshi says in his new Introduction to these, the complete supernatural stories, 'The element that fuses Bierce's tales . . . is the focus on what might be called the psychology and physiology of fear. . . . Bierce is relentless in dissecting the precise succession of emotions that transforms a sane, normal man . . . into a gibbering lunatic.' And Bierce's precise, pared down writing style provides a perfect foil to the Gothic content of his tales.
In his journalism, Bierce habitually ridiculed belief in ghosts, apparitions, and revenants; but he nonetheless continued to find death a powerful and troubling concept. It is significant that he does not provide an entry for 'Death' in The Devil's Dictionary: it was, perhaps, the one phenomenon he could not poke fun at. His own death remains an enduring mystery: the septuagenarian Bierce went missing during a trip to Revolutionary Mexico late in 1913, and no trace of him has ever been found.

『完訳 悪魔の辞典』

我が本棚で威圧感を放っているシロモノ. 何せ完訳ですぜ.

もう20年くらい箱から出しておらず、このたび開けてみようかとも思ったが、ダークサイドに堕ちるかもしれないのでやめておいた.
