  • I am the narrator from The Tell Tale Heart. The old mans creepy eye scares me. I must kill him.

  • Claim
  • Hahaha I'm going to hide you in the catacombs.
  • Come examine my Cask of Amontillad!
  • Textual Evidence
  • In two stories, The tell Tale Heart and The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe Montresor and the narrator both kill someone. Montresor kills his friend Fortunato because he insulted him and the narrator kills the old man because of his creepy eye.
  • Analysis
  • Montresor was more justified to kill Fortunato than the narrator was to kill the old man.
  • Counter claim
  • Wrap up
  • The author states in The Cask of Amontillado, "Fortunato insulted me. So I vowed revenge."(Poe, 27). In The Tell Tale Heart, the author states, "I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye for ever."(Poe, 836)
  • In The Tell Tale Heart, the narrator didn't not have a reason to kill the old man except that his eye freaked him out, but innTye Cask Of Amontillado, Monetresor had a reason to kill Fortunato because he had insulted him. And it was in his motto to punish him.
  • Some may think that the narrator of The Tell Tale Heart was more justified but he was actually just insane. He had no good reason to kill the old man while Montresor did because of his coat of arms.
  • In conclusion, Montresor was more justified to kill than the narrator was. Montresor was insulted while the narrator was just drove mad by the eye.
