Week 4 Discussion Post “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” Part 1: Ambrose Bierce used third – person point of view in the first part of the story. This is part of the reality that a man is going to be hung. This is where the man starts thinking of his wife and children, and a way to escape threw the river below. During this process he starts to block out the sounds of nature around him that had distracted him from what he thought was important. “The water, touched to gold by the early sun, the brooding mists under the banks at some distance down the stream, the fort, the soldiers, the piece of drift – all had distracted him.” (Bierce, 2008) Part 2: Peyton Farquhar is a well to do farmer, who is helping the Confederate side of the Civil War. You learn here that Farquhar was trying to damage a bridge that had been taken by the Union Army. He received this message from what he thought was a Confederate soldier, who turned out to be a Union soldier there to set a trap. Since the first part is a man who is being hung by the army, the trap worked.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
