An Out of Body Experience of Sorts

I'm a slacker on this blogging stuff. Actually, it's usually the last thing on my mind. Anyhoo...

Ambrose Bierce: "An Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge"

"Peyton Farquhar was dead; his body, with a broken neck, swung gently from side to side beneath the timbers of the Owl Creek Bridge" (322).

I'm suprised that people thought he was going to live. Bierce was good at fooling readers. I like the change of viewpoints in the story, it makes it more interresting. We go from a random person being hanged to an actual character.
