Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • During Carnival, Montresor plans to seek revenge on Fortunato. To lure Fortuntato into the catacombs, Montresor tells him he has a bottle of Amontillado wine down there. Fortunato, who is already drunk, accepts his friend's offer.
  • Conflict
  • Montresor explains to the readers that Fortunato has done wrong to him so Montresor plans to get back at Fortunato. He never says what the wrong was that Fortunato has done to him.
  • Rising Action
  • Montresor and Fortunato begin to make their way down Montresor's family's catacombs. Fortunato keeps on coughing so Montresor asks if he just wants to turn back and forget the wine but Fortunato refuses.
  • Climax
  • When they finally make it down the catacombs, Fortunato finds no wine. Instead there is a hole in the wall that Montresor chains Fortunato in. Then Montresor begins sealing up the wall.
  • Falling Action
  • As Montresor continues to close up the wall, Fortunato begins to get over the affects of the alcohol and realizes what is happening. He tries screaming for Montresor to stop, but he only continues to build the wall.
  • Resolution
  • Montresor finishes sealing up the hole with Fortunato inside. As he walks away, nothing is heard from Fortunao except the jingling of his bells from his costume. Montresor finishes with "In pace requiescat".
