The Cask of Amontillado
Transcript of The Cask of Amontillado
Fortunato insists on to be taken to Motresor's vaults. Montresor strategically planned for this meeting by sending all of his servants to the carnival. The two men descend into the vaults, the walls covered with nitre or saltpepper.
Montresor was angered by his acquaintance, Fortunato. Fortunato had insulted Montresor and Montresor wants revenge but didn't want to put himself at risk. During the carnival season Montresor approaches Fortunato wearing a mask of black silk.
Montresor tells Fortunato that he has acquired something that could pass for Amontillado, a light spanish sherry. Montresor tells Fortunato that if he is too busy then he will ask Luchesi. Fortunato thinks of Luchesi as a competitor. Fortunato is anxious to taste the wine and to tell Montresor if it is the real Amontillado.
While descending the vaults, Fortunato develops a cough. Montresor offers to take him home but Fortunato declines and drinks wine as the antidote for his cough. After a while of exploring the vaults Fortunato has become intoxicated.
