Regretfully, I do not understand your first question regarding "The Cask of Amontillado". Perhaps, if you restated it one more time for clarity, I would be appreciative. As to your second request, I am still searching the internet for a German translation of "Metzengerstein" and I will let you know if I find it.

He's asking what is the setting of the Short Story "The Cask of Amontillado"

Thank you Sarah. Generally, the setting, at least for me, is thought to be in Western Europe and most probably in the beautiful forested mountain region between Austria and Italy. The time.. probably in the late 18th century to early 19th century or, perhaps, even contemporary with Poe's time.

While I was able to find a German interpretation of Metzengerstein, regretfully, it was not in electronic form and was merely an analysis and not the full text itself.

Thanks again, Sarah.
