Storyboard Text

  • Irony "He had on a tight-fitting striped dress, and his head was surmounted by the conical cap and bells"
  • Imagery "I passed down a long and winding staircase, requesting him to be cautious as he followed. We came at length...and stood together upon the damp ground of the catacombs.
  • Mood "A succession of loud and shrill screams, bursting suddenly from the throat of the chained form...I thrust a torch through the remaining aperture and let it fall within...I forced the last stone into position..."
  • In this specific piece of text, you can infer that Fortunato is dressed like a fool. This is Ironic because later on in the story, Fortunato becomes the fool he is dressed as by falling for Montresor's tricks.
  • In this piece of text, the author helps demonstrate and describe what Montresor and Fortunato feel and see when they enter the catacombs. You can picture them walking down a long winding staircase and entering a room that feels cold and damp.
  • This piece of text gives off a dark and uneasy feel for the mood. Listening to his screams, Montresor just put the last stone in place, burying Fortunato into the wall to die.
