  • Rising Action
  • At the beginning of he story, Montresor is a bitter man who wants revenge against an associate of his named Foruanto. "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
  • Fortunato and Montresor meet and the time comes to spill whats going on with Fortunato.  ""It was about dusk, one evening during the supreme madness of the carnival season, that I encountered by friend." "Oh, the irony of "friend" here.
  • Falling Action
  • Forutuato stops screaming and Montresor hears the bells on his costume when he throws the torch into the catacombs. "A succession of loud and shrill screams, bursting suddenly from the throat of the chained form, seemed to thrust me violently back. For a brief moment I hesitated - I trembled."
  • Resolution
  • Montresor chains Fortunato in a wall. "A moment more and I had him fettered to the granite."
  • Fortunato gets stabbed by Montresor and then Montresor throws a flame where he hopes Forunato will die. "I placed my hand upon the solid fabric of the catacombs and felt satisfied." 
  • Montresor still tells the tale after 50 years. Must be he got away with the crime. "For half the of a century, no mortal has disturbed [the wall of bones]."
