Short Story #259: Parker Anderson, Philosopher by Ambrose Bierce
Title: Parker Anderson, Philosopher
Author: Ambrose Bierce
ReflectionInitially, I was fascinating with the discussion in the way in which the spy was owning his existence and forthcoming nonexistence. It was an interesting discussion about allowing to be controlled by others. However, when how he perceives death, his inability to accept death seemed a little bit forced. I get why Bierce was doing it but the story was initially a more interesting commentary on how we own or don't own our lives.
