The Yellow Wall Paper The Cast of the AmontilladoThe short story The Yellow Wallpaper written by Charlotte Gilman and The Cast of Amontillado written by Edgar Allan Poe are stories in which the plots are very different but share similar qualities with the elements in the story The Cast of Amontillado is a powerful tale of revenge in which the narrator of the tale pledges revenge upon Fortunato for an insult The Yellow Wallpaper is a story about a woman her psychological difficulties and her husbands therapeutic treatment of her illness She struggles over her illness and battles her controlling husband The settings in both stories are very important they influence the characters and help with the development of the plot In The Yellow Wallpaper the setting helps define the action as well as to explain characters behaviors The setting is which the story takes place is in the narrators room where she is severally ill and she is locked up in the room which served as her cage The room in which the narrator is caged in is a nursery it is a big airy room the whole floor nearly with windows that look all ways The paint and paper look as if a boys school had used it The narrator describes the color of the walls as repellent almost revolting it is an unclear yellow with a dull orange The condition that the narrator is in the repulsiveness of the room and the room haunting her drives her into insanity The Cast of Amontillado takes place in an appropriate setting not only is the setting underground but also in the blackness of the night The story begins around dusk one evening during the carnival season in a European city The location quickly changes from the activities of the festival to the damp dark catacombs under the commons With the setting being so dramatic irony plays an important role in the story Irony occurs
