This storyboard does not have a description.
"My dear Fortuanto you are luckily met".
In the beginning of the story Fortunato was drunk and unfortunately his "drunk wore off which caused problems. "I had scarcely laid the the first tier of masonry when I discovered that the intoxication of Fortunato had in great measure worn off" (Poe, 121)
Literary Device (Foreshadowing)
Montressor HATES Fortunato but is nice to him. Montressor is using verbal irony because he is being fake with Fortunato. (Poe, 117)
Literary Device (Imagry)
This story is first person because the narrator always uses "I" in the story's quotes. "Proceed", I said, "herein is the amontillado, as for Luchesi-" (Poe, 120)
"it is this," I answered, producing from beneath the folds of my roquelaire a trowel. This is foreshadowing because Montressor might use this trowel (small shovel) later on in the story. (Poe, 119)
"The wine sparkled in his eyes and the bells jingled." This is referring to what Fortunato is wearing. (Poe, 119)
The setting is probably around the 1600/1700s. "Unsheating my rapier, I began to grope with the recess; but the thought instant reassured me." A rapier is a sword and not a lot of people use swords .
