Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • 50 years ago I sought out revenge on a man, Fortunato, for which he insulted me...
  • Hello Fortunato, you are looking great today. So, I have a bottle of Amontillado and I was wondering if you would like to authenticate it for me. But it seems like you have a cold and the catacombs won't do you any good so I will get Luchressi.
  • Rising Action One
  • Amontillado! No, I am fine let us be on our way. Luchressi knows nothing
  • Cheer's to your long life!
  • Rising Action 2
  • jingling
  • No I'm fine lets keep going.
  • *coughs
  • Hey we should go back your cough doesn't sound so good.
  • The Amontillado is right through here.
  • In the exposition I picture Montresor telling the story of his plan 50 years ago on his death bed to his son. A man, Fortunato has insulted him so he planned revenge. His plan to revenge himself was to make Fortunato the fool and kill him.
  • Climax
  • The Amontillado!
  • In the first part of the rising action they are both at the carnival. Fortunato is dressed up as a jester and Montresor is dressed up as the Grim Reeper. Montresor goes over to Fortunato compliments him. Then, he tricks him into going to his vault for the Amontillado.
  • Falling Action
  • Ahhhhhh! Ahhhhhhh!
  • jingling
  • Fortunato!Fortunato!
  • In the second part of the rising action they are in the catacombs of Montresor's house. As they go through the catacombs Montresor keeps giving Fortunato wine to make him more drunk, and Montresor toasts to Fortunato's long life . As they keep going the nitre makes his cold worse. Montresor than fakes empathy for him by suggesting for them to go back but Fortunato refused. His bells then jingle which symbolizes him being fooled. Then, he tells him that the Amontillado is in the small niche, but it isn't.
  • Resolution
  • Rest in peace
  • 50 years later...
  • In the Climax of the story Fortunato is in the small niche that Montresor tricked him into. Montresor then chains Fortunato to the wall. With that Fortunato asks about the Amontillado because he was still drunk, and wasn't fully aware what was happening.
  • Yes, the Amontillado...
  • In the falling action Fortunato begins to sober up. While this happens Montresor gets the materials for him to build up the wall. Fortunato then get into a screaming match. Before he puts up the last block he gets one last look at Fortunato. Fortunato then dies because of his cough/ sufficates with the last sound of jingling( Fortunato gets fooled for the last time ).
  • The climax proves the theme, the need for revenge is a strong motivator correct. I know this because Montresor has a strong desire for revenge against Fortunato. This desire results in the death of Fortunato. 50 years later that revenge lived on with him not being caught.
