  • EXPOSITON
  • How? Amontillado? A pipe? Impossible!
  • But I have received a pipe of what passes for Amontillado, and I have my doubts.
  • CONFLICT
  • RISING ACTION
  • We will go back; you will be ill, and I cannot be responsible.
  • Enough, the cough is a mere nothing; it will not kill me. I shall not die of a cough.
  • During Carnival in Italy, Montresor runs into Fortunato, and offers to share a very nice bottle of Amontillado wine with him. However, this bottle is in his catacombs. It is late at night and Fortunato seems ill.
  • CLIMAX
  • The narrator, Montresor, claims that Fortunato has gravely insulted him, and is plotting to get his revenge. Although, he doesn't tell the reader what Fortunato has done, he makes it know that it was unforgivable. ​
  • FALLING ACTION
  • Let us be gone.
  • Montresor lures Fortunato down into the dark and eerie wine vault. As suspense builds, Montresor keeps asking if Fortunato would like to turn back because he seems ill. Fortunato continues to drink wine to ease his cough.
  • RESOLUTION
  • jing-ling. jing-ling
  • When they reach their destination, there is no Amontillado, but there is a hole in the wall. Montresor shackles Fortunato inside, and begins to seal up the wall with bricks.
  • Once more let me implore you to return. No? Then I must positively leave you.
  • As the last few bricks are laid, Fortunato screams for Montresor to stop, but it is too late. Montresor has enacted his revenge.
  • Yes, let us be gone.
  • Montresor walks away with only the sound of Fortunato’s jingling jester bells echoing in the tomb. He replaces the bones of the crypt. In the end, claims that no one has disturbed them for 50 years; he has gotten away with his plot!
  • In pace requiescat!
