Theme of Revenage in The Cask of Amontillado : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

I have to write my final paper over the Theme of revenage found in "The Cask of Amontillado." I am just looking for as much insight as I can find to this topic. Any Ideas as the angle I could take? What exactly do you consider revenage? How is this shown in Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado."

After bearing insults to his honor, the murderer Montresor crafts a fitting and brutal revenge. he not only buries his enemy alive, silencing his obnoxious voice, but has Fortunato willingly cooperating in the trap thinking his skills as a wine taster will be called for. In doing so the victim participates in his own destruction(justifying his enemy's judgment and showing himself indeed inferior to the clever, more ruthless Montresor.)
