Storyboard Text

  • Setting and Atmosphere
  • A Gothic Protagonist
  • I shall not die from a cough
  • We will go back; your health is precious
  • Emotions Run High
  • A very good joke, indeed-- an excellent jest
  • - A secret room is the setting of the short story.  - The grave that Montresor makes for Fortunato - " Within the wall thus exposed by the displacing of the bones, we perceived a still interior crypt or recess... for no especial use..." (Poe, 5) 
  • Foreboding
  • Good!
  • Nemo me impune lacessit
  • - Emotional (cut off from the people around him) - Montresor tells Fortunato how people love and respect him, and he thinks about how that used to be him -" You are rich, admired, beloved; you are happy, as once I was" (Poe, 3)
  • Some Sort of Decay
  • That doesn't sound like Fortunato
  • - A heightened sense of drama when someone goes mad/ insane  - When Fortunato realizes what is going on, he starts to scream, and Montresor enjoys it. - "The noise lasted for several minutes, during which, I might have hearken to it with the more satisfaction, I ceased my labours and sat down upon the bones." (Poe, 6) 
  • The Supernatural
  • Amontillado!
  • I have my doubts
  • - Ancient curses linger in the air - Montresor's coat of arms - "Nemo me impune lacessit" (Poe, 4)
  • - Overall impression of the decay of an individual  - Fortunato was such a prideful man, and when Montresor kills him, he loses his pride and sounds much different. - "It was succeeded by a sad voice, which I had difficulty in recognizing as that of the noble Fortunato" (Poe, 6)
  • - Unexpected manifestations - Montresor tells Fortunato that there is Amontillado in the vaults, which was only a trap to get Fortunate to where he was eventually going to be killed -"But I have received of what passes for Amontillado, and I have my doubts" (Poe, 1)
