Storyboard Text

  • Verbal Irony
  • "My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met!"
  • Situational Irony
  • "My heart grew sick; it was the dampness of the catacombs that made it so."
  • Ahhh! God help me!
  • Dramatic Irony
  • "I continued, as was my wont, to smile in his face, and he did not perceive that my smile now was at the thought of his immolation."
  • Fortunato is actually very unlucky because Montresor plans to seek revenge on him! Montresor considers himself the lucky one.
  • The reader expects Montresor's heart to feel sick because he killed Fortunato. Instead, he blames it on the dampness of the catacombs.
  • Fortunato is oblivious to Montresor's plans of revenge. The reader is aware the whole time. It is like watching a train wreck!
