Storyboard Text

  • Oh! What a surprise to see you, Fortunato! (Not!) Can you come and taste some of my wine?
  • Montresor's Perspective & Motivation
  • Sure! I'm the best at wine tasting!
  • Claim
  • Where is the Amontillado? Why is this taking so long?
  • No one insults my family name and gets away with it.
  • Textual Evidence and Analysis
  • For the love of God! Why are you doing this?
  • "We Montresors were a great family...No one insults me without punishment" (Poe, 31).
  • You've ruined my family, Dude!
  • Montresor was angry with Fortunato because he insulted him and so he plotted to kill Fortunato.
  • Montresor's reaction to being insulted was extreme and he was not right (not justified) to kill Fortunato.
  • It is true that Fortunato insulted Montresor, but Montresor's reaction was overblown and he was not justified in killing Fortunato. He states, "No one insults me without punishment," but killing someone for an insult is extreme. Montresor could have found other ways to punish Fortunato, but he plotted his death and carried it out in a brutal way.
