Storyboard Text

  • I said to him, "My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met. How remarkably well you are looking today! But I have received a pipe of what passes for amontillado, and i have my doubts" (212).
  • Point of View
  • At the most remote end of the crypt there appeared another less spacious. Its walls had been lined with human remains, piled to the vault overhead, in the fashion of the great catacombs of Paris. Three sides of this interior crypt were still ornamented in this manner.
  • Setting
  • My heart grew sick- on account of the dampness of the catacombs.
  • The view point of this character affects my responses to the other characters by making them seem like possible targets. The narrator's knowledge influenced my response to the characters because, I could tell that someone would follow the plan that he had mentally. The truth is hard to decipher. At this point it is a bit harder to tell the truth from the lies, but as the story progresses, it becomes more clear.
  • The setting should make the story more suspenseful, thus causing the conflict to grow. However, the characters don't seem one bit frightened by the backdrop. This setting causes a creepy/scary mood. The word choice makes the scene very vivid, and it makes you feel as though you are there with the characters.
  • This causes a dramatic change in the mood. This changes the mood from a creepy/scary mood to one of sadness and grief. There may also be some guilt involved. He has sentenced his friend to death, for revenge. This causes a major turn in the book.
