Cask of Amontillado Project
This storyboard does not have a description.
Shall we turn back? Your health is precious.
I drink to the buried that repose around us.
And I to your long life.
I vow revenge on the great Fortunato, for he has insulted me. And I must punish him with impunity.
"Come," I said, with decision, "we will go back; your health is precious. You are rich, respected, admired, beloved; you are happy, as once I was. This is verbal irony because Montresor is acting like he is concerned about Fortunato's health, when he really wishes for his death.
"I drink," he said, "to the buried that repose around us." "And I to your long life." This is situational irony because it sets the expectation that Montresor wants Fortunato to live a long life. However, later in the story, we realize that Montresor really wants him to live a long life, suffering in the chamber.
"The thousands of injuries of Fortunato I had borne as best as I could, but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge. I must not only punish, but punish with impunity." This is dramatic irony because Montresor is stating to the audience that he wants to get revenge on Fortunato. However, Fortunato is not aware of Montresor's plan.
