Storyboard Text

  • Imagery
  • Hey Fortunato!
  • Foreshadowing
  • Onomonopea
  • (Ugh Ugh)
  • “it was about dusk, one evening during the supreme madness of the carnival season, that I encountered my friend.” (82) This shows imagery by explaining that it was dusk, and a very busy day during the carnival.
  • Simile
  • When Montresor brings a trowel down into the Catacomb, and shows it to Fortunato. This is foreshadowing that he is going to use that to kill him, without anyone else knowing.
  • Hyperbole
  • (very slight insult)
  • “Ugh! Ugh! Ugh!” (86) This is explaining Fortunato's cough and how he is not dealing well with the niter (Mold).
  • Personification 
  • "The niter... it hangs like moss upon the vaults... the drops of moisture trickle among the bones."(87) This is a simile because it is comparing two things using like or as, like in this example.
  • “The thousands of injuries of Fortunato…” (82) This is an example because he didn’t really do a thousand things.
  • “The wine sparkled in his eyes and the bells jingled.”(86) This is personification because the wine does not actually sparkle in his eyes, and no bells were jingling.
