  • Introduction
  • Claim
  • Reason
  • In the short story, "The Cask of Amontillado," by Edgar Allan Poe, the narrator, who has the last name of Montresor, has been insulted by Fortunato, a jester. He finally decides that enough is enough. He decides that he is going to kill Fortunato.
  • Textual Evidence
  • The narrator's revenge isn't justified.
  • Analysis
  • Fortunato insulted Montresor, which is deserving of revenge, but not the kind Montresor took. A simple insult is not deserving of death.
  • Conclusion
  • "Fortunato had insulted me. So I vowed revenge. ... So Fortunato had no reason to think that I meant him harm." (Poe,1).
  • Here Montresor is saying that because Fortunato insulted him he will kill him, but Fortunato doesn't even know he did it.
  • Had Montresor's revenge been less extreme it would have been justified, but because of his extreme idea for revenge it was unjustified.
