Storyboard Text

  • The Cask of Amontillado By Edgar Allen Poe
  • In the beginning of the story, Montresor describes why he is angry at Fortunato, which is because Fortunato injured and insulted Montresor. Montresor tells the audience of his plot to kill Fortunato for his actions. He meets Fortunato at Carnival and brings him to his wine catacombs, claiming he has Amontillado, a rare type of wine.
  • In the middle of the story, Fortunato and Montresor walk through the catacombs looking for the Amontillado. Fortunato is drunk, and Montresor keeps offering drinks to keep him from sobering. Fortunato has a cough, and Montresor keeps insisting they turn back and he will ask someone else to taste the wine, which makes Fortunato determined to carry on. His cough becomes increasingly worse.
  • At the end of the story, the Fortunato and Montresor reach the end of the catacombs, and there is no Amontillado. When Fortunato brings this up, Montresor tells him it is over the wall. When he reaches up for it, Montresor chains him up. He then begins to build a wall around him. Before Montresor finishes the wall, he drops a torch inside, and after a while listens, but hears nothing .
  • There are only two characters in the story, Fortunato and Montresor
  • The moral of the story is treat others as you would want to be treated because Fortunato injured and insulted Montresor, but he didn't like when Montresor injured him.
