Worksheet for An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge Title of Story: An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge Date of Original Publication: 1891 Author’s Name: Ambrose Bierce Birth: 1842 Death: 1914? Name of Main Character (Protagonist) and description of that character’s dominant traits or features. Include the background and values of this character: Peyton Farquhar is the protagonist in this story. He was a southern planter and slave owner in Alabama who was a supporter of the Confederate Army. I feel that Farquhar also feels that being famous or well-known is important because he is willing to risk his wonderful life with his wife, who he obviously cares about a lot due to him imagining escaping his death and making it to her, to burn down a bridge to help the army. Names of other characters with similar information. Also note what type of character you are discussing (antagonist, minor, peripheral): Farquhar’s wife, a minor character- The fact that she went to get the scout water shows that she was on Farquhar’s side as far as beliefs in the war, but although they had a good relationship it seemed that wasn’t enough for him because he was willing to risk it all to burn down the bridge.
