Page 1 Mind of Montresor By Chadir Shivers September 24 2001 Page 2 In Edgar Allen Poes The Cask of Amontiallado the reader quickly realizes that Montresor is not a reliable narrator In fact he is repelled by several aspects of the Villiains character which heighten the effect of horror in the story First his motive was crazy we know that Montresor could not be trusted If there was a legitimate one Fortunato would have been suspicious Second Montresor has a manipulative scheming mind which makes the story even scarier because he is such a clever foe He planed the murder at the perfect time carnival seasonEveryone in masks and costumes He played a game of reverse-Psycology his servants tell them not to leave the house because he will be gone until morning knowing he will be gone his servants left the house He also did it in his catacombs where no one can hear him He was also smart enough to get furtunato drunk enough so he couldnt defend himself He was very manipulative Montresor kept asking furtunato to go back knowing furtunato would never go back because he wanted to keep his reputation as the best wine taster in page 3 the city The cask of the Amontiallado was in my opinion a horror story in a league in its own Think about it a crazy man with a crazy motive to kill made a brilliant plan and was successful at doing it So heres the question is Montressor crazy or evil
