# 26 Bitter Bierce
“His vehemence as a critic his motto “Nothing Matters”, and the sardonic view of human nature that informed his work, all earned him his nickname “Bitter Bierce” Yes. There is the Civil War that might have shaped Ambrose Bierce cynicism. When he did his time serving in this war it change him. Particularly his feelings about human nature. He was a sad man because basically he did not like people. His was very opinionated. I believe he was just an evil, bitter man, maybe because how they were treated as soldiers in the Civil War, and other negative things he experience from the government. He was not only a bitter man he seemed to had a personality disorder. To have a nickname like “Bitter Bierce” means a very unhappy Man.
