The Cask of Amontillado: To Take Revenge


the Cask of Amontillado: To Take Revenge

to kill Masons as a general religious principle. It follows that Montresors motive might be different, as well. Unsuccessful and Unremorseful, montresors revenge scheme is unsuccessful because it does not ultimately fulfill either of his two rules of revenge: I must not only punish, but punish with impunity and the avenger must make himself felt as such to him who has done the. This means that he isnt in a hurry. New Haven: Yale University Press, 1987. This explains Montresors increasing impatience for a reply; his revenge scheme necessitates a conscious victim. Viewed through Fortunatos eyes, this brutal deed has been done without any reason. Thats why he implores Montresor before he dies. In, the Cask of Amontillado the thirst for vangeance is responsible for the death of a man. Such a theory is further demonstrated when Montresor calmly echoes Fortunato's exclamation, "For the Love of God" (Poe, 1597). Even so, Masonry membership is probably not the entirety of Fortunatos insult.

Gargano, maintains that Montresors motive arises from his fragmented psyche (312). This means the act of revenge has to be unredressed. The author introduces the readers to the narrator who is known as Montresor when he is talking to an unknown audience. Although Reas theory is reminiscent of the murderers of The Black Cat and The Tell-Tale Heart (who kill people with whom they have warm relationships it glosses over Fortunatos two offensive insinuations: I forget your arms and You? Were Montresor to experience more insults, his fury would emerge renewed. Jahrbuch für Amerikastudien. (This fear is momentary; as he feels the solid fabric of the catacombs, he is satisfied that no sound will penetrate them) (Poe 853). Someone as twisted as Montresor, who would murder someone in a way that promotes great suffering merely over an insult, would not be expected to feel guilt or compassion. Though it is evidently sarcasm, and obvious that Montresor is playing with Fortunato, he still took that chance.
