He wondered what it was, and whether immeasurably distant or nearby – it seemed both. Its recurrence was regular, but as slow as the tolling of a death knell. He awaited each new stroke with impatience and – he knew not why – apprehension.” In reality, the anvil that he hears is really A. the
men preparing the noose. B. his watch. C. a Civil War battle occurring just over the hill. D. a man cranking the rope.
