Un suceso en el puente de Owl Creek
An occurrance at Owl Creek Bridge

Ambrose Bierce

Clásico Advanced - C1

The writer Julio Cortazar included this disturbing story in his selection of ‘Unforgettable Stories’, together with others by Borges, Truman Capote, Poe or Tolstoi. The text sets off as Peyton Farquar, a Southern landowner supporter of the Confederate cause is going to be hung by soldiers of the Northern Federal Army during the American Civil War. The narrator skillfully takes the reader into the condemned man’s mind in order to describe a delirious escape, his riveting struggle with death and his reunion with life and renewed awareness of every colour, sound and detail. However, what makes ‘An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge’ so famous is its surprising and unforgettable end, which calls for a second reading.

The story was first published in 1890 in a newspaper, the San Francisco Examiner. One year later it was published together with others by the same author in a compilation titled ‘Tales of Soldiers and Civilians’.
