The Cask of Amontillado

by garrett, haleigh , and ryland


Definiton- the writer's attitude toward his/her audience and subject

Example: " The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could;but when he ventured upon insult, i vowed revenge."

Explanation: This quote explains tone in The Cask of Amontillado because Poe writes as he is angry and wants the readers to know that Montressor seeks revenge.


Definition- Something that represents something else in the story.

Example: The "cask" In The Cask of Amontillado.Explain: It represents how Fortunato was bated to his death by Montroser.


Definition: A word or phrase that appeals to one or more of the five senses. "He turned toward me, and looked into my eyes with two filmy orbs that distilled the rheum of intoxication"This use of imagery displays how drunk fortunate is in how he fills the rheum of intoxication.

Extra Question: How and Why Fortunato died at the end. What character flaw caused Fortunato to fall for Montressor's trap?

Fortunate died forming chained up in the catacombs by Montessori and then being sealed in by a wall. fortunate died because he had insulted Montressor and Montressor did not like to be insulted. Fortunate's flaw would be his pride for himself and not wanting Montressor to go to Luchesi to taste the wine.

Smore review

Pros: easy to move, change and delete slides , as well as the great one page format. cons: you cannot go back if you mess up.

My group did not enjoy more because the format of was too far off compared to google docs and microsoft word/powerpoint
