Storyboard Text

  • Mood
  • 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."
  • Irony
  • 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.
