  • Climax
  • "THE thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I bestcould; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge"(Poe 1). This sets up the story where Montresor wants revenge against Fortunato. The story takes place in a carnival where both characters interacted. Fortunate is heavily drinking.
  • Falling Action
  • "From the fourth thebones had been thrown down, and lay promiscuously uponthe earth, forming at one point a mound of some size" (Poe 8).  Montresor has invited Fortunato to come to his plazzo. Fortunate is drugged from the drink that Montresor has given him. Fortunate does not know what is going on or where he is going. Montresor takes advantage of his enemies position and takes him to a underground burial site.
  • Resolution
  • "A moment more and I had fettered himto the granite" (Poe 8). Montresor Leads Fortunato to the underground burial site. Then, chains Fortunato to the granite rock inside the underground burial. Montresor claims that he chained Fortunato because Fortunato did not ask to leave.
  • "I had completed the eighth, the ninth, and the tenth tier. I had finished a portion of the last and the eleventh" (Poe 10). While Fortunato is chained up in the underground burial, Montresor is building up the fourth wall.
  • "I forced the last stone into its position; I plasteredit up. Against the new masonry I re-erected the old rampartof bones. For the half of a century no mortal has disturbedthem" (Poe 10). Montresor finished building the wall leaving Fortunato alone to die in the underground burial. This kills Fortunato.
