Bierce extends the figure of the double, which appears in many of his stories, to reflect his dissatisfaction with the limitations of the contemporary realistic aesthetic and to express his pessimistic perspective on developing nineteenth century concepts of human psychology and his philosophical view of the double-edged human psyche, a theory about the dichotomous nature of the human mind— a study in philosophy as well as psychology. Key Words: Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce, Doppelganger, Pessimistic Perspective on Human Psychology An American Civil War hero as well as an editorial columnist for several newspapers, including William Randolph Hearst 's San Francisco Examiner, Ambrose Gwinett Bierce (1842-1914?) was best known during his lifetime for his vituperative political satire and acerbic wit in his legendary "Prattle" column as well as his epigrammatic Devils Dictionary.

The narrative addresses the theme of authenticity through the invented dialogue presented by the narrator, and the choice of language. Throughout the narrative, dialogue seems to flow with a very prominent emphasis on digression on the narrator’s part; Holden, the narrator, will, for the most part appear not to have a point, simply because of his veering nature when it comes to telling his story. However, these digressions make up almost the entirety of the novel. They are the reader’s window into learning more about the narrator’s development as a character, including his ideals of authenticity, a prominent theme addressed in the particular digression being presented by way of a ‘hypothetical’ dialogue. This dialogue uses an interesting choice of language to get this theme across clearly without breaking the narrative.

This is Twain commenting on the fact that in order to make a man want something, you must simply make it difficult to obtain. Altogether, this evidence shows how social commentary is a large part of Twain's unique writing style. It is, in fact, one of the main reasons he started writing: to instill lessons of morality and astuteness into his readers. O. Henry has a very unique writing style.

Abstract: Chokher Bali is an outcome of immense sensitivity on the part of the novelist, Rabindranath Tagore, who was interested in documentation of human psychology in his novels. Tagore could no longer take delight in dead metaphors of idealism, at a time when he perceived that the whole world around him was rapidly changing. Written during the phase of cultural transition, the novel presents the confusing state of slippages from moral line, which Tagore has considered more obvious than sinful.
