Storyboard Text

  • The exposition occurs at dusk one night when Montresor coincidentally runs into Fortunato. It happened to be in the middle of carnival season when they met and Montresor mentions the rare bottle of wine that he bought to Fortunato.
  • Exposition
  • Fortunato
  • Montresor
  • The rising action is when Montresor convinces Fortunato to come and find the Amontillado with him down in the catacombs. The rising action also includes the many times that Montresor asks Fortunato if they need to go back because of his obvious illness. But, instead Montresor keeps taking Fortunato deeper into the vaults while Fortunato keeps drinking his wine.
  • Rising Action
  • The conflict in "The Cask of Amontillado" is at the start of the story when Montresor vows to get revenge on Fortunato. He also says that he will punish him with impunity after Fortunato insulted Montresor. 
  • Conflict
  • The climax in this story is when Montresor shackles Fortunato up on a wall in the catacombs. Then Montresor starts covering up the hole in the wall with stones where Fortunato is shackled up.
  • Climax
  • The falling action includes when Fortunato starts begging Montresor not to finish closing him up into the wall. But, since Montresor has such a hostile and aggressive revenge plan in mind he keeps proceeding. Montresor ignores Fortunato's screaming and covers up his last air hole with a stone.
  • Falling Action
  • The resolution is when Montresor starts walking away from the stone wall with only the sound of jingling bells in the background. At the end of the story Montresor states that no mortal has disturbed the catacombs for a half a century and along with that he had gotten away with his mischievous plan.
