It probably makes me a bad person, but I love the assumption of all of Bierce’s characters that they are decent people. The diction is the joy of the satire, the overly polite and genteel way the brigands talk. When a burglars’ disagreement lends itself well to another patricide, the protagonist “could not help but admiring his spirit of sensitiveness and admired him and for a moment was disposed to overlook his fault [.
This latter point recommends Bierce’s work to the serious law student. Sometimes it gets downright crazy, like a music box that not only barks like a dog and crows at dawn, but also breaks the 10 commandments–it dizzies the mind to think how a box would, for example, violate the 7th, or the 8th.
Breaking the 6th, of course, is elemental to everything that inhabits Bierce’s world. So terrible and so, so, funny.
Maybe I’m just really morbid but this book hooked me in right from the title and kept my attention all the way to the end.
It consists of 4 short stories, all of which are about people who killed their parents. But so compelling and hilarious! What I love best is that the author Bierce does not rely on graphic details of the murders but instead uses a more pedantic prose style, peppered with plenty of dry wit and whimsy, to hike up the horror of the stories. And the Maybe I’m just really morbid but this book hooked me in right from the title and kept my attention all the way to the end.
And these stories are absolutely horrific, grotesque, appalling I also love the fact that the protagonists are all so matter-of-fact about their crimes, as if it was just a minor inconvenience in their lives.
