H.L. Mencken (1880-1956) was a writer and columnist for the Baltimore Sun papers and founder of the American Mercury. A prolific critic of the American bourgeoisie and democratic pretensions, his wit and observations made him one of the most prominent and influential journalists of the 1920s and 1930s. His writings include numerous columns and autobiographic works; American Language, a seminal study and defense of American English; and Prejudices, a compilation of his views on American culture.
