  • Introduction
  • Claim
  • Reason
  • In the short story, "The Cask of Amontillado," by Edgar Allan Poe, Montresor is the main character. He felt insulted by a man named Fortunato in the past, so he sought out for payback. As his revenge he tricked Fortunato into his catacombs and trapped him, leaving him to die.
  • Textual Exidence
  • Boi get those stanky feet outta here. Beady eye-crusty hair-ugly nose lookin dood. Chapped lips long toe nail lookin, boi go back to the jungle you came from dood monkey lookin dood.
  • Monstresor's revenge is not justified.
  • Analysis
  • Monstresor was not justified in his revenge because insulting is not equivalent to murder.
  • Conclusion
  • "Fortunato had insulted me..." after he had been trapped this happens, "Suddenly, Fortunado let loose with several loud, forceful, mad screams."
  • This shows the imbalance of the two acts. Insulting is bad, but murder is just cruel. In no world is an insult equivalent to murder. Fortunato was clearly trying to be nice throughout the story by kindly greeting Montresor and what he got back was death.
  • In the long run, a simple childish insult is not even close to equivalent as unjustified murder.
