  • Claim
  • Fortunato I need you to test a cask of Amontillado, it doesn't taste right to me.

  • It's quite late Fortunato, I suggest you go home and try the wine in the morning?
  • In the story "The cask of Amontillado" by Edgar Allen Poe, the main character, Montresor, wants revenge on, Fortunato, because Fortunato had insulted him for many years.

  • Montresor's revenge was justified.
  • Analysis
