Short Story:  An Occurance at Owl Creek Bridge by Ambrose Bierce

Poem:  We Real Cool by Gwendolyn Brooks

Essay:  Montaigne; or, The Skeptic by Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Let us have a robust, manly life; let us know what we know, for certain; what we have, let it be solid, and seasonable, and our own. A world in the hand is worth two in the bush. Let us have to do with real men and women, and not with skipping ghosts.”
