  • Introduction
  • Haha! You think there's actually Amontillado down there?
  • Where's the Amontillado?
  • Claim
  • What about the Amontillado?
  • Finally!
  • Reason
  • In the short story "The Cask of Amontillado" by Edgar Allen Poe, the narrator tells a story about how he killed his "good friend" Fortunato. Fortunato had insulted him his entire life so he decided to get back at him by killing him.
  • Textual Evidence
  • Montresors revenge was justified.
  • Analysis
  • He was justified in his revenge because Fortunato insulted him multiple times throughout his whole life.
  • Conclusion
  • Monstresor says, "Fortunato had insulted me. So I vowed revenge. Not in so many words, of course. Never aloud." (1)
  • This shows that Fortunato had made a fool of Monstresor. So much that Monstresor wanted to hurt him. Fortunato insulted him to the point where Monstresor couldn't take it anymore and he decided to kill him. This proves that the insults must've been so bad that it deserved death.
  • Monstresor's revenge was necessary considering he had been made fun of for so long.
