---- ‘Un suceso en Owl Creek Bridge / An occurrance at Owl Creek Bridge’ ----
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.
