Contrast Papers Essay, Research Paper

A Summary of Poe s Short Story The Cask Of Amontillado One of the main themes of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Cask Of Amontillado is revenge. In this summary theme I intend to demonstrate how dramatic irony is used all along the short story as a way of reminding us the true intentions of the character who vowed revenge. Firstly I will make a brief summary of the short story: the story is supposed to happen more than a hundred years ago.During Italian Carnival festivities. The main character, a man called Montressor, feels terribly ofended, even insulted by a friend named Fortunato, and firmly decides to take this friend’s life. In order to achieve his aim, Montressor elaborates a plan which consists basicaly of two steps: first, to take Fortunato to the catacombs of the Montressors, and second, to arrest Fortunato down there forever. Irony first appears in Fortunato’s name, once we are made aware, in the second paragraph, that he is going to be killed, but it ( the irony ) continues present during all the short story as something to call our attention to what is really happening. In the second paragraph Montressor states that in spite of his decision of killing Fortunato, he continued smiling in his face ( Fortunato’s ), but he adds: “…and he did not perceive that my smile now was at the thought of his immolation.” So, when they meet each other they behaved as always, but now Montressor’s smile had another meaning for himself. Certain evening, ” during the supreme madness of carnival season… Montressor meets his “friend” Fortunato and Montressor is very kind, even affectionate towards him. He greets Fortunato… “My dear Fortunato, you are luckly met…” The reader that knows Montressor’s real intentions notices here that this greeting has another meaning, different from what it would mean if we did not know about Montressor’s plan. story to call the readers’ attention to the double meaning of words, and for extension, as one of Poe’s favourite motifs, the duplicity of human nature.
