His name means lucky and fortunate. Despite that, Fortunato was the complete opposite from lucky. First of all, he wasn’t lucky because he became friends with the wrong person. He was deceived and ended up being punished for his foolishness. It shows us how if we are friends with the wrong people, we can get into trouble and may suffer immensely because of it.
The third base coach was furious he was in the umpire’s face saying that he just wanted the game to end so he call the kid out. The play itself wasn’t the really cool part, it was that our team had pulled together and beat the team that had knocked us out of the tournament before in extra innings on a lucky hit. None of us knew it yet, but this was going to be a great year. We were almost like
In order to have Fortunato follow him home, Montresor asks if he can help him decide if what he bought was an Amontillado. Fortunato has a weakness as a connoisseurship in wine, and agrees to help his friend. Secondly, Montresor continuously mentions how Luchresi could assist Montresor if Fortunato could not. This angered Fortunato, and pushed him to keep going.
Montresor told Fortunato that he is a “rich, respected, admired, beloved” (86) man. He does not actually think that. When he says he “must not only punish” (83) Fortunato, but he must “punish [him] with impunity” (83), which he does. The first step in Montresor's plan is to get Fortunato to go in the catacombs. He says to Fortunato, “Come, we will go back, your health is precious” (86).
The audience cannot even be certain that the insult ever occurred. Perhaps the slight is only in Montresor 's mind. Fortunato seems blind to Montresor 's true intentions, meaning he is either completely oblivious and insensitive to those around him, or, what Montresor has deemed a horrible crime punishable by
Due to the fact that Montressor is clever, he is able to lead Fortunato away to murder him. Montresor keeps casually bringing up Luchresi as he is talking to Fortunato making Fortunato want to stay with Montresor more and more every time he brought up Luchresi 's name. " Thus speaking, Fortunato possessed himself of my arm; and putting on a mask or black silk and drawing a Roquelaure closely about my person, I suffered him to hurry me to my palazzo" (p. 1, li. 88-92). That was
Throughout the story Montresor expressed his extended hatred towards Fortunato, a fellow friend. With great care and patience he meticulously formed a plan to end Fortunato. However,
Montresor kept his promise of getting revenge and Fortunato happened to be
This game we got punched in the mouth right at the start of the game. We were getting beat 8-0. Then we started to realize this team was actually pretty good. They had a couple of very efficient shooters but they were a mainly inside team. At the half the score was 29-28.
My own body had failed me and I had failed the team. I 'm sure it didn 't seem like a big deal to anyone else but it was to me because I had faced this forward many a time and he had never flat out beaten me like that. It meant that if he could beat me then all the other offensive people on other teams could also beat me just as easy. After the game it was all I could think about.
and it was close all the way to the end. We were down by 2 with 20 seconds to go and Mattson got fouled. He went to the line and made 1 of 2 free throws. Marquette had the ball and they missed their shot. We got the ball and we drove down the floor I got the ball and threw it to Jacob who threw it to Jake
They came down the court and we go a steal, ran down the court and made an easy layup. By halftime we noticed something, the expressions on their face… they were shook. We had intimidated the A team and that pushed us to play even harder and make sure everyone knew we were a dangerous team to play against. We beat them and we were happier than a kid at a circus. We had become the A team.
Montresor tortures Fortunato, both physiologically and physically. Montresor clearly gives Fortunato “multiple chances to escape his fate” (Delany 34), as he gives Fortunato obvious clues to his true intensions. These include leading Fortunato into a place for the dead, telling Fortunato not to go due to his severe cough that made it “impossible to reply” (Poe 5) at times, reminding Fortunato of his family arms, mentioning Luchesi, and showing Fortunato a trowel. Montresor seems to receive morbid joy out of the fact that Fortunato is so intoxicated that, just like the foot on Montresor’s coat of arms, he is unintentionally “stepping into his own destruction” (Cervo
