Edgar Allan Poe

The Cask of Amontillado

The Cask of Amontillado," which first appeared in Godey's Lady's Book in 1846, is a classic example of the use of an unreliable narrator. Montresor tells his tale of revenge smugly, as he invites the reader to applaud his cleverness much like the narrator of “The Tell-Tale Heart.” By telling the story from Montresor's point of view, Poe forces the reader to look into the inner workings of a murderer's mind.

    I must not only punish, but punish with impunity. A wrong is unredressed when retribution overtakes its redresser. It is equally unredressed when the avenger fails to make himself felt as such to him who has done the wrong.

    He had a weak point—this Fortunato—although in other regards he was a man to be respected and even feared. He prided himself on his connoisseurship in wine.
