Edgar Allan Poe and Ambrose Bierce

Collector: Ann V.

A two-part lesson examines the works and biographies of Edgar Allan Poe and Ambrose Bierce. Part One focuses on the authors’ narrators and asks readers to consider whether the narrators of “A Tell-Tale Heart” and “Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” are reliable and whether their tales, as told, can be trusted. Part Two asks readers to use their investigative skills again to determine if the biographers of these writers are reliable or whether other motivations poisoned their pens.
