Deep in the cold heart of Rome, Italy, lives a man. A man by the name of Montresor. With the recent death of his parents, he has acquired a great some of wealth. One day as Montresor wanders the streets of Rome he notices many flyers and people discussing the carnival that is coming to town that night, ”interesting,” he whispers to himself. After purchasing all that he needs, Montresor then returns to his mansion, that he had acquired from his parents tragic death. Hours later he exclaims, ”I’m going out tonight! Watch the old crumbly place for me if you would Alessandro, I shall only be but a few hours.” Alessandro is Montresor’s family servant. After a long walk back to the city it is now beginning to become dark and the festival begins to thrive. Montresor walks around the poorly built oak stands that are set up around the lively festival, but stops as he comes around to a stand of great size containing many bottles of cheap and expensive winery. Scanning up and down the different bottles that he is relatively familiar with, he is interrupted by a strange man who seems to be already drunk, the man leans over Montresor’s shoulder, ”AMONTIALLDO!” screams the stranger man “I beg your pardon sir?” speaks Montresor. “The wine boy! The wine! It’s Amontillado!” replies the man. “But of course,” utters Montresor.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
