This storyboard does not have a description.
Imagery "I passed down a long and winding staircase ,requesting him to be cautious as he followed."
Irony "He had on a tight fitting parti-striped dress, and his head was surmounted by the conical cap"
Suspense "A succession of loud and shrill screams, bursting suddenly from the throat of the chained form, seemed to thrust me violently back"
The use of imagery in this scene creates a suspenseful mood because you do not know what is going to happen after they pass the staircase,l especially because he warned him to be cautious.
Fortunato is dressed like a clown or fool, and only a fool would follow Montresor into the catacombs just for wine, so it is ironic that he is dressed like a fool, because he is one.
At this point in the story, we know that Montresor is burying Fortunato alive, but so far Fortunato has been mostly quiet, so when he screams, the readers don't know why or who is screaming, and you dont know what is going to happen next.
