  • Introduction
  • Just be cool
  • Claim
  • Be careful down these stairs.
  • Don't worry about me, I just wanna taste the Amontillado.
  • Reason
  • Here we are. Please, follow me to the Amontillado, it's not far from here.
  • YAY!! I can't wait to try it!
  • In the short story, "The Cask of Amontillado" by Edgar Allen Poe, features two characters named Fortunato who was a jester and Montresor who was born into wealth. Fortunato has always pestered and insulted Monstresor for a long time, and Monstresor has had enough with it and is done dealing with his nonsense, and wanted revenge.
  • Text Evidence
  • HAHA!!
  • Montresor's revenge is not justified.
  • Analysis
  • Montresor's revenge isn't justified because fortunato was insulting him and being rude to him, isn't worth killing. It is not "an eye for an eye" situation at all, it is unfair to murder someone because your feelings were hurt.
  • Conclusion
  • Montresor states, "Fortunato had insulted me. So I vowed revenge." (Poe, 1) "In the blink of an eye, I had chained him to the wall." (Poe, 4)
  • This shows the frustration and the agony Montresor has, and this shows how he really feels about Fortunato insulting him, but this also shows how crazy and mad he really is. Montresor was not logical at all. He thought silly insults compare to death or killing somebody. He is immature for thinking that murder was the right answer to insults, he is crazy. It is also a very brutal way to die too.
  • Mentresor endured from all of the insults, and got exactly what he wanted...Revenge.
