The doctor who admitted her was notorious for berating a nurse at a moment’s notice and was the head physician at the hospital and ruled the roost (so to speak) and was impossible to please – reportedly. The off-going nurse was giving me report, and it went something like this: “She is in there crying and squirming in pain.

The Coup de Grace, written by Ambrose Bierce, is a realistic fiction short-story. This story takes place in the wilderness, among the aftermath of a bloody battle, which took place during the Civil War. Out of all three stories, I least enjoyed this one, due to, the overall lack of detail, imagery, and emotion. In my opinion, Bierce had several opportunities to add power and substance to the story; yet he simply went with a dry and unimaginative style. Obviously, in a story like this one -where it takes place during a specific war or event- the time period and setting are imperative to the plot.
