I have received a pipe of what passes for Amontillado!
Rising Action Two
We will go back; you will be ill, and I cannot be responsible.
The story starts off to where we find out that a man named Fortunado has injured or insulted the narrator, Montressor. It takes place in the 17th century during carnival season. The main conflict is Montressor Vs. Fortunado.
Montressor goes to the carnival and finds Fortunado who is very drunk.He then convinces him to come with him to inspect some 'Amontillado', The irony in this is that Fortunado's name means "the fortunate one", but really, he is very unfortunate. He is also dressed as a jester, which is basically a fool.
Once in the catacombs, the nitre makes Fortunado's cold even worse. They reach the deepest, darkest room and Montressor tells Fortunado to go in a small niche in the wall. The irony in this is that Montressor says "You will not die of a cough". The symbolism is that when the bells on F's hat jingle, he is being tricked
For the half of a century no mortal has disturbed them...
In the climax, Montressor chains Fortunado to the inside of the niche. Fortunado is still very drunk and does not understand what's happening. Then Montressor starts to build the wall to the niche.
Yes, the Amontillado.
Fortunado begins to sober up and realizes whats going on. Before finishing the wall, Montressor looks at Fortunado one last time. Then he finishes the wall and hears jingles. These jingles are ironic because they represent Fortunado being fooled for the last time.
Yes, for the love of God!
In the resolution, Montressor seals the tomb around Fortunado and then calls out his name. The internal conflict is that maybe M is having second thoughts about killing F. The theme is that revenge is a strong motivator. The story ends where M brags about how no one has found the body for 50 years
