3 types of Irony (The cask of Amontillado)
This storyboard does not have a description.
Follow me this way to the wine.
AHHH HHHHH HHHHH!
Cough! Cough! Cough!
Here have some Medoc...
" I passed down a long and winding staircase, requesting him to be cautious as he followed. we came at length to the foot of the descent, and stood there together on the damp ground of the catacombs of the Montresors." This is a form of dramatic irony because the readers can find out that there is no wine in the basement, but Fortunado doesn't know it.
“ A moment more and I had fettered him to the granite. In its surface were two iron staples, distant from each other about two feet, horizontally. From one of these depended a short chain, from the other a padlock. Throwing the links about his waist, it was but the work of a few seconds to secure it." This is a form of situational irony because it is opposite of what we expected. We expected him to just kill him not chain him to a wall and have him suffer.
"Enough," he said; "the cough is a mere nothing; it will not kill me. I shall not die of a cough." "True—true," I replied; "and, indeed, I had no intention of alarming you unnecessarily—but you should use all proper caution. A draught of this Medoc will defend us from the damps." This is an example of verbal irony because he is saying that his cough will not kill him, and Montresor says "true,true" because he knows he is going to kill him not the cough.
