Storyboard Description

Four examples of foreshadowing in The Cask of Amontillado

Storyboard Text

  • Foreshadowing #1
  • A sign, a sign!
  • It is this.
  • Foreshadowing #2
  • And the motto?
  • Nemo me impune lacessit.
  • Foreshadowing #3
  • Enough, the cough's a mere nothing; it will not kill me. I shall not die of a cough.
  • True- true.
  • In this scene, the foreshadowing is that Montresor later uses the tool he shows Fortunato to seal him into the stone "tomb."
  • In this scene, the foreshadowing is the Montresor's family motto. "Nemo me impune lacessit" translates to "No one attacks me with impunity." This shows how Fortunato is going to be punished for insulting Montresor.
  • This scene shows foreshadowing because when Fortunato says that he won't die of a cough, Montresor agrees and says "True-true." This shows that Montresor knows how Fortunato is going to die, since he kills him later in the story.
