He has plotted a revenge for him so that Fortunato could get what he deserved. Montresor planned for Fortunato to get drunk and then lure him to his home where he will kill him . After Fortunato is led back to Montresor’s house be deceiving him and took him to the catacombs of the Mansion where the supposed Amontillado wine is. Montresor was planning to trap Fortunato in the catacombs to kill him, this is an extremely horrible death. Dying of starvation or thirst would be a painful way to go especially in a dark catacomb surrounded by skeletons and the smell of rot and dampness.
A killer does not have a uniform, but an executer typically wears a black silk mask. Knowing this the reader can sense what will happen to Fortunato. Fortunato is drunk in The beginning of the story, which affects what he does to lead him to his death. “His eyes flashed with a fierce light” (Poe 2013). Knowing how drunk he is affects his judgments for when Montresor takes him to his death, showing how he made those
Once Dionysus turned himself into a boy and got drunk (Bulfinch). While drunk some pirates came and asked him where his home was and were going to take him home (Bulfinch). He lied where his home was and told them Naxos so the pirates would take him there (Bulfinch). The pirates were on there way all but one decided it was a good idea to sell the boy into slavery (Greek Mythological Story of Dionysus and Ariadne). As soon as the pirates turned the ship the winds stopped and the boat filled with grapevines (Greek Mythological Story of Dionysus and Ariadne).
“Let me have/A dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear/ As will disperse itself through all the veins/That the life-weary taker may fall dead,/And that the trunk may be discharged of breath/As violently as hasty powder fired/Doth hurry from the fatal cannon’s womb” (5.1.63-68). Essentially, this is after Romeo hears Juliet is dead and creates a plan to kill himself. In this scene, he is buying a drug from the apothecary that would instantly kill him. Shakespeare personifies the potion to show its power and show the way Romeo is feeling about Juliet's death. The audience knows that Juliet is still alive, but Romeo doesn't know the death is a part of the plan
For example, when an officer casually shoves the Underground Man In order to deescalate the situation in the tavern, the Underground Man takes offence to this and plots a long term solution to a meniscal problem. Rather than moving on with his life, he draws up plans to exact his revenge on the officer who probably doesn’t know he exists. These kinds of actions would be supported by Dostoyevsky because it requires strategic and calculated planning for the success of the mission. Liza, on the other hand, is a prostitute who
In Edgar Allen Poe’s story, “The Cask of Amontillado,” a man named Montresor has a feud with another man named Fortunato. Montresor decides to get revenge after Fortunato has consistently insulted him. Fortunato is a wine connoisseur, so Montresor uses that to trick him into going to the catacombs. While they are down there, Montresor gets Fortunato drunk, so that he will not realize what Montresor is doing. Montresor chains him and mounts a wall around him so he cannot get out.
If you are using a persuasion technique, and something bad happens as a result of your persuasion technique, you are primarily responsible for what happened. Iago suggested to Othello that Desdemona was cheating on him which made him paranoid which caused his downfall, he convinced Cassio to get drunk which made him lose his position of lieutenant, he convinced Roderigo to kill Cassio by using Roderigo’s love of Desdemona against him, and Iago riles up Brabantio by using his prejudice to his advantage by telling him that Desdemona married Othello which leaves him with a broken heart which eventually kills him. This is why the events of the play can be attributed to Iago. One reason why the tragedy can be blamed on Iago is due to the fact
This one-sided story by the narrator, Montresor, leads to a suspenseful conclusion not only that Fortunato’s insults perhaps are minor, but also that Fortunato may not recognize the issues at all. This lack of evidence and unrealistic friendship lead readers to believe that Fortunato does not deserve to be buried alive. Montresor could be just a sadistic character who wants to murder his enemy for
Montresor’s hatred for Fortunato is what leads him to his plan of chaining and burying Fortunato behind a wall. Montresor is very angry with Fortunato, but yet he knows he must not act in such a hostile way, as to not raise the suspicions of Fortunato. Montresor convincingly asks Fortunato to come down to the catacombs with him to “verify” some wine which Montresor has “bought”. Montresor knows that he must not blow his cover, and the story goes into great detail as to how Montresor keeps luring Fortunato down to
In Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Cask of Amontillado,” Poe uses both verbal irony and dramatic irony. An example of verbal irony is when Montresor says to Fortunato, “‘And I to your long life,’” in the catacombs. This was when the narrator and Fortunato just finished drinking their wine and jokingly toasts to Fortunato’s life. When Montresor says this, he is actually saying “And I to your short life,” because he knows Fortunato will die soon. It is like Montresor is using sarcasm.
Once Romeo believes that Juliet is no longer alive, he makes another rash decision to bribe an apothecary for poison. Later in the tragedy, Romeo sees Juliet dead in the mausoleum, and decides to express his love for her, then drink the poison. Once Juliet awakes from her deep sleep and sees Romeo dead, she takes her own life with a dagger. Both Juliet and Romeo’s tragic downfall could have been avoided if Romeo thought about the consequences before he murdered Tybalt. Romeo’s rash behaviors in Romeo and Juliet resulted in many negative consequences, and he consistently acted impetuously that impacted others in an unnecessary way.
Romeo 's personality of peace, loving, yet vengeful caused his own doom once he was exiled for killing Tybalt who killed Mercutio. Thus 'evidently causing pain for Juliet who lost both her lover and cousin. Juliet 's father arranging Juliet 's marriage to Paris made her mourning worse, already being married to Romeo yet being separated made her to reason with Friar Laurence. The plan that was supposed to reunite both Lovers indefinetly brought upon their own doom. Juliet herself drank the sleeping potion when Romeo was on his way earlier than anticipated, whom bought poison upon hearing of her "death" , planning to kill himslef on her tomb alongside her.
“The Cask of Amontillado”, written by Edgar Allen Poe, tells the story of how Montressor brings Fortunato into the catacombs to bury him alive. Montressor, from the story “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allen Poe, is insane because he lies about wine to get Fortunato into the catacombs, he plays off of Fortunato’s ego, and he buries Fortunato alive. To begin, Montressor is insane because he lies to Fortunato about a very expensive wine to lure him into the catacombs. Montressor’s revenge is played throughout the story, starting with a lie as the first step. Montressor knows that Fortunato is an expert in wine, so he tells him this to lure Fortunato into the catacombs: “But I have received a pipe of what passes for amontillado, and I have my doubts” (Poe 212).
