  • Exposition
  • During an Italian carnival Montresor runs into Fortunato. He offers to share a bottle of Amontillado with him. However, this bottle is in his catacomb, it is late at night and Fortunato seems ill.
  • Conflict
  • Montresor tells the readers that Fortunato has made a insult against him and so he is going to get revenge. Although, he doesn't tell the reader what Fortunato has done, he makes it know that it is unforgivable.
  • Montresor brings Fortunato down into the dark wine vault. As suspense builds Montresor keeps asking if Fortunato would like to turn back because he seems ill. However, Fortunato continues to drink wine to make him feel better.
  • Rising Action
  • Climax
  • When they reach the vault there is no Amontillado but there is a hole in the wall. Montresor shackles Fortunato inside and begins to seal up the wall with bricks.
  • As the last few bricks are laid Fortunato screams for Montresor to stop but it is too late. Montresor has gotten revenge by keeping Fortunato alive in the vault and staved him to death.
  • Falling Action
  • Resolution
  • In the end, Montresor walks away with only the sound of Fortunato’s jingling jester bells echoing in the vault. He replaces the bones of the crypt and exclaims that no one has disturbed them for 50 years. “In pace requiescat”(May he rest in peace).
