Exposition Rising Action Climax Falling Action Resolution The Cask of Amontillado
Plot Diagram By: Debbie Lee The Cask of Amontillado is written by Edgar Allan Poe. The exposition of the story is when Montresor is introduced. He then discusses how he is upset with Fortunato and seeks revenge. In the exposition it also introduces Fortunato as a wine taster, and the enemy of Montresor, but Fortunato seems to be completely oblivious that he is Montresor’s enemy. The rising action of The Cask of Amontillado is when Montresor brings fortunate to his catacombs to taste his Amontillado, an expensive type of wine. During this time Fortunato is slightly intoxicated and not completely aware to what is taking place around him. Montresor claims that he bought a large barrel of Amontillado and doubts, whether or not it is legitimate. The climax of the story is when Montresor chains Fortunato to the wall of the catacombs. Montresor then ignores the screams of Fortunato for mercy. The falling action of The Cask of Amontillado is when Fortunato stops screaming, and Montresor only hears the jingling of the bells on his costume when he throws his torch into the catacombs. Montresor also is finishing sealing the wall he is making in front of Fortunato, so one finds him. The resolution of the story is when Fortunato is left to “Rest in Peace”. This is a picture of the catacombs, where the wine was. This is a picture of Fortunato being chained to the wall, and a wall being built in front of him. This is a picture of something Fortunato might have been wearing because it was a carnival themed gathering.
