I must get revenge on Fortunado for insulting me. He will never suspect it and I will make sure I get away with it.
I have amontillado in the catacombs, but they are coated in nitre and you have a terrible cough. It would be better if I went with Luchressi
No way! "Luchresi, cannot distinguish Sherry from Amontillado"(Poe 22) I will come!
"We will go back; your health is precious.."(Poe 35)
Ugh! Ugh! Ugh! "the cough's a mere nothing; it will not kill me. I shall not die of a cough."(Poe 36)
Montessor wants to get revenge on Fortunado for insulting him. He wants to make sure he gets away with it also. Montressor takes advantage of the fact that Fortunado is drunk and drinks alot of wine. He tricks him into following him into the catacombs by saying that its o if he does not come because he can go with Luchressi.
Fortunado is getting sick from the nitre on the walls. Montressor suggest he should go back but he knows Fortunado will keep going becasue he is very prideful. Montressor offers him some wine and says "to you long life." Montressor is just tring to get him more drunk so he can murder him easily.
"he! he! he! — a very good joke, " (Poe 79). Now please lets leave. We can have a good laugh about this.
As they go through the catacombs, Fortunado is drinking many differnt wines. Motressor hands him a bottle of De Grave. He finishes the bottle and throws it up. Montressor looks surprised so Fortunado asks if he understands. Then he assumes he is not a "mason." Montressor says he is a "mason" even though he is not.
They both continue into the catacombs until they find this room. Fortunado enters first and montresser follows closley behinf. He quickly chains him up to the wall and Fortunado was too surprised to react. Fortunado asks where the amantillado is but Montressor does not give it to him. Instead he starts to build a wall to trap him inside
Fortunados intoxication had worn off quite a bit. He was shaking the chains furiously and screaming intensly. Montressor was startled and he hesitated for a moment. He pulled out his sword but he calmed himslef and continued building the wall. He replied with an even louder sound and immediatly, Fortunado stopped. Fortunado desperatly cells out to Montressor and says that they should go back that they caould have have a laugh about it.
Montressor had almost finished building the wall until he called Fortunados name but nobody replied. He thrust his torch through the last brick of the wall but he only heard the jingle of Fortunados cap. Montressor felt sick knowing he killed Montressor but he blamed it on the dampness of the catacombs. Then, he finally plastered the last stone into place.
