The first example of Fortunato’s foolishness is his decision to accompany Montresor to the catacombs; it is quite foolish for him to impose, because the nitre within the catacombs could affect his already questionable health. He continues this foolish behavior even after Montresor implores him to leave, and again loses his opportunity to escape death. Finally, his madness is seen in his “distorted perceptions and beliefs”. After being captured, Fortunato shows signs of a distorted perception, and seems to believe his imprisonment is only “an excellent jest” (Poe 240).

Diamond supplements this story with that of his father-in-law, Jozef, who, when given the opportunity to exact revenge on the man who brutally murdered his family during World War II, decided to place the murderer in the hands of the legal system. The man was released, leaving Jozef burdened with a sense of “guilt that he had not been able to protect his parents, and regret that he had failed in his responsibility to take vengeance” (11).

Holden is a judgemental person who keeps observing other people’s phoniness but never notices them in himself. He lies intensely throughout the course of the novel, starting from lying to Ackley at the very beginning of the book.
