Storyboard Text

  • Fortunato disrespected my family. I must kill him for he deserves punishment.
  • Perspective & Motivation
  • His eye, it makes me feel uncomfortable, it bothers me. So I have decided to take the old mans life because his eye bothers me.
  • Claim
  • Text Evidence
  • In two stories both by Edgar Allan Poe, "A Tell Tale Heart" and "Cask of Amontillado," both the main characters did pretty bad things, Montresior the narrator. Montresiors motivation is that the man he kills insulted him. The narrators motivation is he hates the man's eye
  • Analysis
  • Montresior is more justified of killing Fortunato than the narrator was of killing the old man.
  • Counter Claim
  • But I am far more justified than of what I did. For I was only being true to my motto. For he only killed a man because the poor old man's eye irritated him.
  • Montresior states, "No one insults me without punishment." I replied." (Montresior, 31)
  • Wrap Up
  • This is Montresior's family fmotto. For Fortunato has insulted Montresior, therefore he must be punished.
  • Although some may argue that th Narrator had better reasoning to be more justified to killing the man for being bothered by his eye. Poe states, "Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold; and so by degrees-very gradually-I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid of the eye forever."(Poe, 836)
  • In conclusion it's no wonder why Montresior killed Forunato, he insulted Montresior so he had to be punished. Montresior is way more justified than the Narrator of his actions.
