My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met. How remarkably well you are looking today.
"... he did mot perceive that my to smile now was at the thought of his immolation."
For the love of God, Montesor!
Point of View
Nemo me impune lacessit.
The story "The Cask of Amontillado", has a creepy mood to it. This is due to how the narrator, Montressor, wants to kill Fortunato, someone he calls a friend, over an unknown insult. It is made creepier in how he plans on doing it during the Carnival, a time when people are essentially in a gigantic party and wear similar costumes, meaning he could kill with impunity.
There is several forms of irony from Fortunato being killed. There is situational irony, with how he acted like a man of wealth and taste, being a wine connoisseur, but he both dressed up as and was a fool, as Montresor has tricked him, chaining him up behind a new wall while he was drunk.
"The Cask of Amontillado" is a first person narrative. It is in the perspective of Montressor. It, however, is a pretty unreliable narrative, for multiple reasons, including Montressor never saying what Fortunato did to him to deserve death, and how he repeatedly called Fortunato internally a friend, despite wanting to kill him.
