    1. The Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge By Ambrose Bierce

    2. 1. • The man on the bridge remains anonymous until the second part of the story, yet he is described in great detail (even his thoughts). Why?

    3. 2. • Explain the imagery of the sluggish stream and the dancing driftwood.

    4. 3. • What is the significance of the man’s perception of his ticking watch?

    5. 4. In section two, Bierce finally introduces Farquhar. Why does he place the detailed description of Farquhar in the middle of the action, as Farquhar falls between the ties? How does this contribute to the suspense?

    6. 5. • Why was Farquhar captured?

    7. 6. • What is the significance of Farquhar’s ability to escape the gunfire?

    8. 7. • Elaborate on the meaning of the imagery in the description of his home: gates, bright and beautiful, white, wide walk—and wife: looking fresh and cool, a smile of ineffable joy, attitude of grace and dignity.

    9. 8. • Sum up the methods Bierce uses to build suspense.

    10. 9. • Explain Bierce’s views of war and the military. How does he feel about it? Support your opinion with evidence from the text.
