  • Reason
  • This way.
  • 'The Cask of Amontillado' by Edgar Allen Poe is about a man named Montresor. For many years Montresor has been insulted by Fortunato, believeing he's a wine expert. Last insult was that, it tipped Montresor off and he vowed revenge. He picked a date. Poor Fortunato was too wasted to notice what was really happening, Montresor has lead him down into Montresor's family Catacombs, chained him up and buried him alive that was the end of Fortunato.
