  • Irony
  • "Within the wall thus exposed by the displacing of the bones, we perceived a still interior crypt or recess, in depth about four feet, in width three, in height six or seven."
  • 'My heart grew sick; it was the dampness of the catacombs that made it so.' This symbolizes that Montresor is sad because the dampness will kill Fortunato quicker than he wants.
  • At the end Montresor says, "In pace requiescat!" This means 'rest in peace' even though he wants Fortunato to die a long, painful death.
