this short story is based on a real story that was told to him while he was a soldier.The person that told him the story made him swear not to tell anyone,but after few years, he wrote The Cask of Amontillado,making sure that time, place and names were changed so that he could keep the privacy of the people that were involved in the real story!

The story is about a man who was jealous of another man's happiness. It drove him to the point of cruel and unusual punishment. In my opinion in was poe's way of of handling those who annoyed him in life. Weather it was intentional or not. Wouldn't you like to bury someone behind a brick wall who annoyed you?

Please, be so kind to look backwrds to the question " SEEKING HELP TO MAKE AN ESSAY ON POE " from September 6th 2003

This digression is not only a recollection of principles distantly addressed to those who impute to us a neglect of nonverbal communication: in determining the scope of what speech repeats, it prepares the question of what symptoms repeat. Thus the indirect telling sifts out the linguistic dimension, and the general narrator, by duplicating it, "hypothetically" adds nothing to it. For the latter will be opposed to the first like those poles we have distinguished elsewhere in language and which are opposed like word to speech.
