Exposition: It begins with Fortunato as wine taster, and the enemy of Montresor, but Fortunato but seems to be completely unaware that he is Montresor's enemy. I know this because,""My friend, no; I will not impose upon your good nature. I perceive you have an engagement. Luchresi--" This explains how Fortunato falls in the grasp of Montresor's murderous plot.
Rising Action: Montresor brings fortunate to his catacombs to taste his expensive wine. There is a quote that ties into this it is,"and yet some fools will have it that his taste is a match for your own."
Falling Action: Fortunato stops screaming and Montresor only hears the jingling of the bells on his costume when he throws his torch in the catacombs. The quote is," The wine sparkled in his eyes and the bells jingled. My own fancy grew warm with the Medoc. We had passed through long walls of piled skeletons, with casks and puncheons intermingling, into the inmost recesses of the catacombs. I paused again, and this time I made bold to seize Fortunato by an arm above the elbow."
Climax: Montresor chains Fortunato to the wall of catacombs. The quote on how this happened is,""Pass your hand," I said, "over the wall; you cannot help feeling the nitre. Indeed, it is very damp. Once more let me implore you to return. No? Then I must positively leave you. But I must first render you all the little attentions in my power."
Resolution: When Fortunato is left to "rest in piece".
