The Cask of Amontillado Story Board- Jillian George

Storyboard Text

  • I know more about Amontillado than Luchresi, you should not ask him.
  • I am on my way to ask Luchresi about tasting the Amontillado.
  • This way, my friend. Are you sure you don't want to go back? You are coughing an awful lot.
  • Take me to this Amontillado!This cough is nothing, it will not kill me.
  • Where's the Amontillado?
  • Exposition: While at the carnival, Montresor is trying to get Fortunato to fall for his trap. Montresor wants revenge on Fortunato because he insulted him. Montresor knows that Fortunato will be drunk and that Fortunato has great pride in his knowledge about wine and insists he knows more than Luchresi does.
  • My plan is working...
  • Rising Action: Montresor lures Fortunato into his basement. At the time Fortunato does not suspect anything. Fortunato is coughing uncontrollably because of the foul, damp air hanging in the catacombs.
  • He deserves this...
  • Very funny joke Montresor!
  • Climax pt. 1: Fortunato is very drunk, and looks for the Amontillado. He only finds a hole in the wall which Montresor leads him into. Fortunato is very confused.
  • I finally got my revenge...
  • Fortunato?
  • Climax pt. 2: Montresor continues his plan to lock up Fortunato, and chains him to the wall. Fortunato is drunk, so Montresor chains him up easily, as Fortunato does not comprehend what is happening to him.
  • Falling Action: Montresor starts plastering the hole in the wall back together using bricks. Fortunato starts to come out of intoxication, he then screams and laughs at the situation.
  • Resolution: Montresor completes his task by sealing Fortunato behind the wall. Montresor feels some guilt about what he did, but denies it and says that is purely the dampness of the catacombs.
