Irony, Foreshadowing

Storyboard Text

  • Verbal Irony
  • My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met.
  • Situational Irony
  • I got walled in, but my name is Fortunato?
  • Dramatic Irony
  • Yes, I'm a mason.
  • Are you a Mason?
  • This is an example of verbal irony because we know that Montresor wants to kill Fortunato. As a result, one wouldn't consider Fortunato lucky to meet Montresor.
  • Foreshadowing #1
  • The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as best I could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge.
  • This is an example of situational irony because Fortunato means "fortunate" or "blessed" in Italian; however, Fortunato got walled in and, thus, killed by Montresor.
  • Foreshadowing #2
  • He had a weak point - this Fortunato - although in other regards he was a man to be respected and even feared. He prided himself on his connoisseurship in wine.
  • An example of dramatic irony occurs when Fortunato asks Montresor if he is a Mason or not. Montresor replies, "Yes"; however, we know that in reality, he isn't.
  • Foreshadowing #3
  • The cough is a mere nothing; it will not kill me. I shall not die of a cough.
  • This is an example of foreshadowing because Montresor tells us that he will revenge for what Fortunato did. As a result, we can assume that Montresor will kill Fortunato in the narrative.
  • This is an example of foreshadowing when Montresor tells us a weakness of Fortunato. This foreshadows that Montresor will use wine to lure Fortunato into the catacombs and, thus, murder him.
  • This is an example of foreshadowing because it foreshadows that Montresor is going to kill Fortunato. Fortunato claims that it won't be a cough that kills him and Montresor agrees to this. As a result, one can assume that it will be Montresor who kills him.
