A draught of this Medoc will defend us from the damps
Rising Action 2
I drink to the buried that repose around us
Fortunato injured and insulted Montressor a thousand times and Montressor vowed revenge. External conflict is Montressor v.s. Fortunato. It takes place in the 17th century in the catacomes while it is carnaval.
Montressor runs into drunk Fortunato at carnival, Fortunato is dressed as a clown. Montressor complements Fortunato and tells him he has Amontillodo. Then brings up Luchresi to maniputate him into going. Montressor's costume is a grim reaper symbolizing death. Fortunato is dressed as a clown and he is getting fooled, this creates irony.
They get to the catacombs and Fortunato's cough is getting worse. Montressor keeps giving Fortunato wine to make him more drunk. Montressor and Fortunato get to the deepest part of the catacomes and Montressor tells Fortunato the Amontillodo is through a small niche. The catacombs symbolize death. Fortunato says he won't die from a cough this creates irony because he is going to die from a cough.
While deep in the catacombs Montressor chains Fortunato to the wall in the small niche. Montressor has planned this for a long time and been down to rearange the bones so that he can chain Fortunato to the wall. Fortunato is still drunk so he doesn't relize what is going on.
True, the Amontillado
Fortunato begins to sober up while Montresssor begins to build a wall. Fortunato relizes whats happening and starts screaming In responce to that Montressor screams back. Before he places the last block Montressor peaks in to see fortunato die. Fortunato's bells jingle. The irony is that Fortunat says he won't die from a cough and he just did.
Montressor is confessing to the murder on his death bed. He says that no one has found Fortunato for 50 years and, "In pace requiescat!" The theme of this stoy is the need for revenge is a strong motivator. Montessors need for revemge is the internal conflict.
