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 ).
