Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Conflict Introduced
  • Rising Action
  • Montresor is a bitter person who wants revenge against an acquaintance of his, named Fortunato. "At length I would be avenged; this was a point definitely settled-but the very definitiveness with which it was resolved precluded the idea of risk."
  • Climax
  • Montresor crosses paths with Fortunato and the opportunity arises to carry out his revenge. "It was about dusk, one evening during the supreme madness of the carnival season, that I encountered my friend."
  • Falling Action
  • Montresor offers Fortunato another drink because he wants to keep him intoxicated. "A draught of this Medoc will defend us from the damps."
  • Resolution
  • Montresor attacks and locks Fortunato in chains and seals him up inside the wall. "A moment more I had him fettered to the granite."
  • Montresor stabs Fortunato and puts the torch in the space to make sure he will die. "I placed me hand upon the solid fabric of catacombs, and felt satisfied."
  • 50 years have passed and now Montresor is telling the tale, so he got away with the crime. "For half of the century no mortal has disturbed the wall of bones."
