Storyboard Text

  • Perspective and motivation
  • I am Montressor and I am more justified for killing Fortunato!
  • I am the Narrator of, "The Tell Tale Heart," I am more justified for killing the evil eyed man!
  • Claim
  • Fortunato Insulted me and my family. He must be killed!
  • Textual evidence
  • In the stories, "The Cask of Amontillado," and, "The Tell Tale Heart,"by Edgar Allen Poe, both characters believe the only way to solve their problems are to kill the person at the source. Montressor (cask of Amontillado) believes that killing Fortunato will restore pride to his family's name. The narrator in, "The Tell Tale Heart," feels tormented by an old man's evil eye. He thinks killing him will give him peace of mind.
  • Analysis
  • Montressor was more justified in killing Fortunato than the narrator of "The Tell Tale Heart" was killing the evil eyed man.
  • Counterclaim
  • I am the narrator of the story, "The Tell Tale Heart" and some may say I am more justified for killing because I have mental disabilty.
  • Montressor thinks, "The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as best I could, but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge" (Monterssor thinks, 886)
  • Wrap Up
  • This information shows how Montressor could live with Fortunato's jokes and jabs. However when he began to insult Montressor, a problem was created. This quote also shows how Montressor had tried to forget about all the negative things Fortunato had said before. Therefore, one could infer that Fortunato's "injuries" have been going on for quite some time.
  • However Montressor is more justified because Fortunato insulted him and that goes against his family crest. The quote, "Nemo me impune Lacessit" (Montressor, 868) means, "No one harms me unpunished." This information is important because it shows how Fortunato violated/insulted Montressors family.
  • In conclusion, Fortunato nagged and insulted Montressor. Therfore, Montressor was more justified for killing someone.
