Storyboard Text

  • Intro
  • My killing is more justified, bud. Deal with it.
  • Claim
  • Get pranked son. But my revenge is justified, mate.
  • "True. We Montresors were a great family.' ' Tell me- what is your coat of arms?' 'A golden foot on a blue background. The foot is crushing a serpent.' 'And your motto?' ' No one insults me without punishment...'"
  • Reason/Evidence
  • " It is impossible to say how first the idea entered my brain; but once conceived, it haunted me day and night. Object there was none. Passion there was none. I loved the old man. He had never wronged me... One of his eyes resembled a vulture- a pale blue eye, with a film over it. Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold...."
  • What is considered justifiable? Killing to protect your family honor, or killing because someones eye bothered you?In the story "The Cask of Amontillado" by Edgar Allen Poe, a man was insulted and he seeks revenge. Revenge is also sought in the other version "The Telltale Heart", the person he seeks to murder has done nothing but have a blue eye that bothers the killer.
  • Analysis
  • I'm gonna kill you, you scrub. You should have a better eye next time.
  • The revenge is more justified in the story "The Cask of Amontillado".
  • Counterclaim
  • I know that I have no purpose. But I should just kill him for the LOLS.
  • " The Cask Of Amontillado"
  • Montresor's revenge is more justified. His motives are to back up his family name and motto. The narrator in the other story admits to not having an important reason.
  • Conclusion
  • I kill for cool reasons
  • " The Telltale Heart'
  • Montresor felt insulted in the first story. When asked about his family crest and motto, Montresor told that it was all about how no one can insult a Montresor without punishment. Montresor feels that he needs to stick to his family motto and go to the extremes of it. It may may not be perfect justification but it is better then killing due to someones features bothering you. The narrator in the second story even admits that he doesn't even know how the thought of killing the man even entered his mind. He even says that there is no true reason and that he loved the old man. But it was just a blue vulture like eye that drove the man insane. Multiple times in the story he says that he couldn't kill the man with his eyes closed. He also says that man never wronged him in any way. In the first story Montresor was protecting his family motto. In the second the narrator admits to not having any true important reason for killing the man.
  • You could say that the narrator's revenge in "The Telltale Heart" is more justified because Montresor only killed Fortunato because he insulted him. It's all about comparison. In the quote he feels like he is not mad for a reason that has nothing to do with insanity. A mad mans actions can not be justified. They can only be justified that he can't tell right from wrong. He is telling himself that he is not mad because he is carying out the murder with great precision. He also admits to himself that he has no serious reason for killing the man. A mad man's murder is not justified. Even more so when that mad man knows that he has now good reason to kill.
  • Your one cool cat
  • It comes down to who has a justifiable reason. Montresor was protecting his family honor, while the narrator in the other story was just killing because something small bothered him. In any situation Montresor's revenge is considered more justifiable. Killing because something bothers you is petty. Killing because you are protecting your honor is a little extreme but considerably more justified.
