Owl Creek

This piece of writing was somewhat confusing toward the end. Reading through it, I thought that the man was actually going to make it through the experience and come home to his wife and kids; however when he approached his wife and she wasn't worried or anything, simply happy to see him, I started to wonder if he was really escaping his executioners. I think that the mad ticking of his watch presages the fact that the man begins to hallucinate.
