Storyboard Text

  • I am going to kill Fortunato because he insults me.
  • Perspective and Motivation
  • I am going to kill that old man because of his terrible evil eye.
  • Claim
  • My killing was more justified.
  • Evidence
  • Lets a join to the seller for the tasting.
  • Okay
  • In Edgar Allen Poe's stories the Tell Tale Heart and The Cast of Amontillado there are killings. For the Cask of Amontillado my character kills a man because he is made fun of. In the Tell Tale heart the main character kills a man because of his evil eye.
  • Analysis
  • I have a very good reason to kill him.
  • The character in the cast of Amontillado has a better reason for killing the man that he does.
  • Counterclaim
  • "Fortunato had insulted me. So I vowed revenge." "I think it was his eye! Yes, it was this! One of his eyes resembled that of a vulture-- a pale blue eye, with a film over it."
  • Conclusion
  • In the end the killing was more justified.
  • These quotes show me that the main character in the Cast of Amontillado had a more justified reason for killing. It showed that he was wronged, and that he wanted revenge. In the Tell Tale heart the main character only wants to kill the man because of his evil eye. This makes the first guys killing more justified
  • Some people might think that the Tell Tale Heart killer killing was more justified. They would think this because. "For it was not the old man who vexed me, but his evil eye." This quote tells me that the mans evil eye affected him. He may have said this man had an evil side, and the eye was his symbolism. This is how people might think that the mans killing was more justified.
  • Apparently my killing is more justified now.
  • Throughout the story Cask of Amontillado the main character shows time and time again that his killing is more justified. He talks about how he was made fun, and that his motto was that No one insults me without punishment. He showed that he had a better reason to kill than the guy from Tell Tale Heart who only wanted to kill this man because of his evil eye.
