The Cask Of Amontillado
By: Maci Rosene, Evan Conner, Abigail Rippee, Chrissa Loth
The tone of “The Cask of Amontillado”, is vengeful and dark. The quote shows this by describing how Montresor and Fortunato were surrounded by a dark and death filled environment throughout most of the story. By Poe using this dark tone, infers the reader to think about what revenge Montresor will do to Fortunato.
Example: “We had passed through walls of piled bones, with casks and puncheons intermingling, into the inmost recesses of the catacombs” (Poe 6).
This quote symbolizes that Fortunato is a comical person who likes to play tricks on people. This is significant in the story because it gives a motive to the murder and explains why Montresor wants to get revenge.
Example: “He had on a tight fitting parti-striped dress, and his head was surmounted by the conical cap and bells.” (Poe 4). 1q
This quote is an example of imagery because it describes in detail what Fortunato is wearing and helps the reader picture Fortunato in their mind.
