Why exactly does Montresour vow revenge on Fortunado?

-- Anonymous, January 29, 2002


The last straw was an insult, unspecified. For the noble, no matter what other status he had regarding Fortunato(the more fortunate but undeserving)honor was everything. His family motto which he quotes to Fortunato says it all. A matter of "face."

The Cask of Amontiallado (or how ever you spell it) is a very confussing story. But in my class we had to read it. Montresour meets Fortunado at a cranval sort of like Marty Gra and they are both very drunk. Fortunado is a low class person and Montresour is a very rich person. Fortunado insults Montresour and he wont stand for it. Montrsour takes Fortunado back to his house and tells him there is a very good bottle of wind in the catacoms under his house. They go down there and Montresour planes to block Fortunado in a room, but because he is drunk he traps himself in.
