  • Exposition
  • Conflict
  • My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met. But I have received a pipe of what passes for Amontillado, and I have my doubts.
  • How? Amontillado, a pipe? Impossible! And in the middle of the Carnival.
  • Come, let us go. to your vaults
  • Rising Action
  • It is farther on, but observe the white web-work which gleams from these cavern walls. It is Nitre. How long have you had that cough?
  • Ugh! ugh! ugh!
  • The Pipe.
  • The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge.
  • Climax
  • Proceed, herein is the Amontillado. As for Luchresi --
  • At length I would be avenged; this was a point definitely, settled --but the very definitiveness with which it was resolved precluded the idea of risk. I must not only punish but punish with impunity.
  • Falling Action
  • The Amontillado!
  • Ha! ha! ha! he! he! he! a very good joke, indeed an excellent jest. We will have many a rich laugh about it at the palazzo he! he! he! over our wine he! he! he!
  • In Pace Requiescat!
  • Come,we will go back; your health is precious. You are rich,respected, admired, beloved; you are happy, as once I was. You are a man to be missed. For me it is no matter.

He was too much astounded to resist.
  • He is an ignoramus.
  • It was now midnight, and my task was drawing to a close. There remained but a single stone to be fitted and plastered in. I placed it partially in its destined position. But now there came from out the niche a low laugh that erected the hairs upon my head. It was succeeded by a sad voice, which I had difficulty in recognizing as that of the noble Fortunato.
  • Yes, for the love of God.
  • For the love of God, Montresor!
  • My heart grew sick; it was the dampness of the catacombs that made it so. I hastened to make an end of my labour. I forced the last stone into its position; I plastered it up. Against the new masonry I reerected the old rampart of bones. For the half of a century no mortal has disturbed them.
  • Fortunato! Fortunato!
