Point of View-The cask of Amontillado

The point of view for the cask of the amontillado is 1st person. Poe writes the story from montresors point of view because he is the main character besides fornutato in the short story. This plan is really good in 1st person because if it was 3rd person then the story wouldn't have dramatic irony and this story has to have dramatic irony because it tells you things that you the characters don't know like how fornutato will get revenge. The story was definitely well written in first person POV and effects the short story in a big way.
