An Inscription-The poem, An Inscription, written by Ambrose Bierce, portrays what history defines as a conqueror or even a military power as a whole, and An Inscription shows the reader how there are always two sides to a conqueror and how it is the victims portray their conqueror, and how the conqueror’s nation portrays them. Ambrose Bierce’s two-sided writing style for this poem gives life to the reality that there is, and always will be two sides of a told story.
The New Decalogue-The New Decalogue is the second version and interpretation poem about The Ten Commandments that Ambrose Bierce had written. The Original piece, titled simply as Decalogue, was published in 1906. A few years later Ambrose revised the poem and renamed it The New Decalogue published in 1911. Both poems are, in some capacity, an analyze of The Ten Commandments in the order they arrive in the scriptures of the Bible found in the book of Exodus.
The Day of Wrath / Dies Iræ- A work by Ambrose Bierce that is pumped full of excitement and dread for the end of day. The entirety of this poem is Bierce’s way of explaining. in his own dark way, how the end of days shall proceed, and as always in any ending of days work, there is the adage of how the Narrator begs for forgiveness, and henceforth renounces their sins.
