Storyboard Text

  • "The Cask of Amontillado" By Edgar Allen Poe Exposition/Made by Addison Pickens
  • Conflict
  • Rising Action
  • During a carnival, Montresor runs into Fortunato. Montresor offers him a bottle of Amontillado. However, the wine is in catacombs so they have to go looking for it. Fortunato also seems ill at the time.
  • Climax
  • At the beginning of the story, Montresor tells us how he wants to get revenge on Fortunato. He doesn't tell us what Fortunato exactly did. He just tells us how he will be avenged. Montresor also tells us that he will, "punish with impunity."
  • Falling Action
  • Montresor tries to lure Fortunato into the catacombs to help him find the Amontillado. As they're going deeper into the catacombs, Fortunato continues to cough. Montresor asks him if he would like to go back but he says no. Fortunato drinks wine to try to stop the coughing.  Montresor doesn't really want him to go back because it's all apart of his plan.
  • Resolution
  • When they get to the catacombs, there is no Amontillado but Montresor notices that there is a hole in the wall. Montresor chained Fortunato up inside the hole. At first, Fortunato was laughing thinking it was a joke but it was Montresors plan the whole time. He starts to brick up the hole with Fortunato inside. 
  • While Montresor is finishing the bricks, Fortunato screams for him to stop. He is not going to stop because he is finally getting his revenge. Fortunato gets mad but Montresor doesn't stop.
  • In the end, Montresor finishes the bricks and walks away with only the sound of Fortunato's bells jingling. Montresor re-erected the old bones and found that no one disturbed them in 50 years. The last line of the story is "In pace requiescat" which means rest in peace.
