Jeopardy Questions about "The Cask of Amontillado" : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

I am making a Jeopardy game for my E.A.P project in english class. I can't think of any questions to ask about the "The Cask of Amontillado." Please help me!

Thanks, Alex

An ironic use of revenge by a teacher! In fact there is ironic dialogue of questions between Montresor and Fortunato(who does not realize the truth until too late).

So pick out key incidents, persons, places and quotes easily identifiable(by reading the story)Then ask a question, then reverse them for the jeopardy form. (eg. Amontillado. ?What is the wine Montresor tempts the connoisseur Fortunato with?)

The very last line in the story is In pace requiescat. Its Latin translation is In peace may he rest. However, there is also another mean to the first part of the phrase, In pace..., it also refers to a very secured monastic prison. You could ask what the other meaning to the phrase was...

Please answer my questions. 1. What personal ability does Fortunato take pride in? 2. Why does Montresor bury Fortunato alive? Please answer me soon.I'm waiting :)
