Storyboard Text

  • My revenge is justified!
  • A golden foot on a blue background. The foot is crushing a serpent.
  • No one insults me without punishment.
  • Tell me- what is your Coat of Arms?
  • And your motto?
  • In the short stories, "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Cask of Amontillado", both written by Edgar Allan Poe, both of the main characters want revenge on another character. "The Tell-Tale Heart was about a man who wants revenge of a man who has a 'vulture eye' , a pale blue eye with film over it. In "The Cask of Amontillado, the main character Montresor wants revenge on Fortunato because he has insulted Montresor. In both stories, the main character kills another character because they want revenge.
  • This proves how Montresor's revenge is justified. Montresor had a family value of no one insults anyone without some sort of punishment. Fortunato insulted Montresor which made Montresor want to get revenge. If a child is taught how to do something wrong, they aren't going to change their ways easily. The narrator in the other story killed him because the narrator's eye looked weird.
  • Montresor's revenge is justified, not the narrator's.
  • One reason Montresor's revenge is justified is because his family had a saying of revenge. Since Fortunato insulted Montresor, Montresor feels like he needs to punish him, which in this case is being burried alive.
  • "the Cask of Amontillado" Edgar Allan Poe, page 31
  • My revenge is not justified.
  • My revenge is justified!
  • Counterclaim : In "The Tell-Tale Heart, the narrator killed the other character because the narrator was scared by his eye. Today, people judge others because of the way they look, which is what the narrator did, but the other character was killed because of his eye. You can't kill someone because you are scared of the way they look.
  • Counterclaim continued: Everyday in the real world people disapprove of others because of the way they look, but we can't kill them so we don't have to look at them. The narrator's revenge is not justified in "The Tell-Tale Heart."
  • Montesor's revenge is justified, but the narrator's is not.
