While Montresor pretends to be a good friend to Fortunato, it is strange that Fortunato does not realize the problems between them. In order to be believable for readers, the insults must be very painful for Montresor, so it urges him to commit such a crime. “The Cask of Amontillado” is missing an important element of Montresor’s motivation to punish Fortunato by burying him alive.

No one would not know what Fortunato did to Montresor and should the insults lead to
After this occasion, the character becomes engulfed in the feeling of irrationality. He loses the ability to determine cause and effect of what is happening around him due to his actions, therefore he subjects himself to complete moral insensitivity to the point that he still attempts to justify himself to the agents of law (Gargano, p.178).
