  • Ohh how I love Amontillado
  • Why does he have to insult my family. I am going to get revenge
  • Claim
  • Reason
  • I don't know what I did wrong!!!!!!!!!
  • In the story, "The Cask Of Amontillado" written by Edgar Allen Poe, the narrator, Montresor, a wealthy man, got revenge on Fortuanato, a man in a jester costume. He tricked him into coming into a catacomb where he buried him alive.
  • Textual Evidence
  • Montresor's actions were not justified. Fortanato does not deserve Montresor's actions.
  • Analysis
  • Montresor's is not justified because he took his revenge too far and his action should were to extreme.
  • Conclusion
  • The narrator states," In a blink of an eye, I had chained him to the wall!" "...Hastily, I began to wall up the entrance to the space ." "... So I stopped my work and sat down upon the bones of a bit." (Poe,32,33)
  • This shows that Fortuanato was buried alive just because he insulted Montresor's family. It's not cool for Fortuanato to insult his family but Montresor took in way too far. There was no reason to kill someone just because they are insulting your family. You could talk to them and work things out but killing someone for insulting is wrong. Fortuanato did not deserve that punishment and should still be alive.
  • Montresor is such a awful person. its no wonder Fortuanato insulted his family.
