"overhead, as he looked up through this rift in the wood, shone great garden stars looking unfamiliar and grouped in strange constellations. he was sure they were arranged in some order which had a secret and malign significance."
how does the excerpt contribute to the theme of fate?

Answers

The excerpt contributes to the theme of fate in that it suggests that Farquhar is wrestling with forces larger than himself.

The fact that he was sure of the malign significance of the strange constellations and the voices he hears, suggests that Farquhar thinks an evil force has interfered in his life to have him killed.

Later in the story, however, we learn that the third part of the story was actually a hallucination that came to him between being thrown from the bridge and the rope breaking his neck, and that Farquhar has indeed died.

The answer is B. Just took the test

Explanation:

A

Bierce's simplistic style of writing allows the reader to easily untangle the complexity of the plot.

Explanation:

Bierce's style is not simplistic: in this excerpt, we have many adjectives to define one noun. Also, some other rhetorical devices are used, like comparing the trees to black bodies, which could be confusing for some readers. Due to this, some aspects might not be easily untangled by the reader. As shown at the beginning of the paragraph, the speaker describes Farquhar's state of being by using several adjectives in order to reinforce the original idea. In the next sentences, the speaker describes many things and compares them to others that might be closer to a wider public (like "the city street"), making letter A incorrect. The second option is not correct because the description and situation lend the writing itself to visualization on the part of the reader. Letter C is incorrect because according to the description, the ambience, and the state of being of the character (all of these aspects related to darkness), a dreamlike state is understood, using some other elements (the stars and constellations looking unfamiliar and strange) to build foreshadowing about Farquhar's fate.

Explanation:

In the excerpt from "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge," by Ambrose Bierce, Farquhar goes through a journey in his dream or fantasy, in which he sees the sky full of stars. Actually, he has been executed so his only escape is through fantasies, whose elements like darkness and water represent the fact that he cannot break away from his destiny.
