Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Conflict
  • Rising Action
  • At the beginning of the story, Montresor is a bitter man who wants revenge against an associate of his name Fortunato. "At length I would be avenged; this was a point definitely settled- but definitiveness with which it was resolved precluded the idea of risk."
  • Climax
  • Fortunato and Montresor had a dreadful history after the unforgettable, ignorant act that would haunt Montresor for years until his revenge was accomplished.  "The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge."
  • Falling Action
  •    How ironic that Montresor bumped into his good friend Fortunato at the biggest carnival of the year. Of course Montresor needed his expertise to solve the case of the real or phony Amontillado. "But I have received a pipe of what passes for Amontillado, and I have my doubts... You were not to be found and I was fearful of losing  a bargain."
  • Resolution
  • As they ventured through the damp, dark vault seeking the Amontillado, Montresor's plans were falling perfectly into place. Little did Fortunato know he was walking right into his very own death trap. One second Fortunato thought he discovered the Amontillado and the next he was chained to a wall getting buried alive.  "A moment more and I had him fettered to the granite"
  • Montresor wasn't done there, he had to make sure his enemy was really dead so he took out his sword and poke around in the recess. Just reassure himself Montresor dropped and at last he had completed his revenge. "I placed my hand upon the soft fabric of catacombs, and felt satisfied."
  • Years and years have passed and no one has figured out what really happened to Fortunato. The people of New Orleans never will never find out as long as Montresor can help it. His revenge is complete and he will carry it around with him as if it were a trophy for the rest of his days.  "For Half of a century no mortal has disturbed [the wall of bones]."
