  • Montresor continues telling Fortunato about the Amontillado. Fortunato is showing signs of being very drunk and sick. We learn how mischievous and spiteful Montresor is.

  • Falling Action

  • Resolution
  • 50 Years Later....
  • Montresor chains Fortunato in the opening of the catacombs. Fortunato isn't really in his right mind, as Montresor jokes with him about the Amontillado. In this scene the readers get a clear idea of how Montresor plans to avenge himself. The mood changes from suspenseful to dark and malicious.
  • Fortunato tells Montresor to let him out, but Montresor denies and they yell back and forth. Fortunato. stops making noise and Montresor tells us that he "...forced the last stone into it's position...". Like the previous scene this scene creates a dark mood because Montresor showed the readers he is capable of doing something that evil.
  • Montresor tells us that 50 years has passed and no one has touched it or even found out what he did. Montresor says "In pace requiescat!" By his tone readerrs can assume that Montresor feels better and feels like his life is better after killing Fortunato. It makes the reader question what did Fortunato do insult him that he feels like his life would be better if he was gone.
