Plot Diagram of "The Cask of Amontillado" by Edgar Allen Poe.
Montresor runs into Fourtunado at a carnival. Montresor wants revenge for the insult Fourunado apparently aimed towards him. He invites Fourunado to test a cask of Amontillado that he has in the catacombs. Fourtunado cannot resist (since is the the expert on wine) and goes despite his sickness, which gives Montresor a chance to get his revenge.
Montresor continues to trick Fortutuando to think that he is a good friend and means well. He asks about his cough and gives wine to Fourtunado to make sure that he stays affected by the alcohol. Fourtunado doesn't suspect a thing and drinks that wine gladly.
There is a hole in the wall and Fortunado decides to go into it. Suddenly, Montresor chains him up to the wall for his revenge. He also starts to seal the wall with bricks for no one to find Fortunado.
Fortunado tries to escape and screams for help. Montresor screams and yells back, letting Forunado know that nobody can hear or help him. Montresor finishes up covering the hole with bricks.
HELP! Funny joke, now lets get back and forget about this.
Montresor finally finishes covering up the hole to the sound of bells jingling. He says, "In pace requiescant". Which means, rest in peace. Although he finished his task, Montresor doesn't feel fully fulfilled.
