Phase 1 Individual Project 3 Phase 1 Individual Project: The Cask of Amontillado In the short story, “The Cask of Amontillado”, Edgar A. Poe gives us another of his dark, mysterious adventures. The story is loaded with imagery and symbolism; however, I am going to save that for last. The instructions for this assignment call for me to give the setting, the characters, the plot development, and the symbolism contained in the story. First, let me give you the setting of the story. It takes place in the evening during the time of the carnival season. The writer describes it as the “Madness” of the carnival season. This leads me to believe there was much partying and merry-making in progress around the characters of the story. It was a time of celebration and there were probably more people in the streets around the town than usually were during any ordinary evening. The writer refers to Fortunato being Italian and that both he and Fortunato were connoisseurs of Italian wine and bought much of it. This makes me believe the setting was in Italy also. The characters of the story are Montresor (the narrator), Fortunato (Montresor’s friend), and Luchesi (another friend of Montresor). Montresor is a, seemingly, wealthy man, from a wealthy family. He lives in a lavish home, called a palazzo. There is mention of Montresor having servants. Though Montresor is assumed to be Italian, he uses Latin and French in his vocabulary, helping the reader establish that Montresor is a learned man (The Cask of Amontillado (Characters): Information from Answers.com, 2010, para. 3 ).

    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.
