The History of Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe


the History of Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe

a confused remembering of Poe's major source, Joel Headley's "A Man Built in a Wall" (1844 which recounts the author's the life of Theodore Roosevelt seeing an immured skeleton in the wall of a church in Italy. Cecil also states that a true wine connoisseur would never sample wine while intoxicated and describes Fortunato as merely an alcoholic. 5 Montresor never specifies his motive beyond the vague "thousand injuries" and "when he ventured upon insult" to which he refers. Of the half of a century no mortal had disturbed them. In 2001, Eureka Productions featured an adaptation in Graphic Classics #1. New York: Harper Perennial. It included a character named Marmaduke Hammerhead, the famous author of "The Black Crow who uses phrases like "Nevermore" and "lost Lenore referring to Poe's poem " The Raven ". This parody of Poe was depicted as a drunkard, liar, and an abusive lover. Fortunato, as his name would seem to indicate, has been blessed with good fortune and wealth and is, therefore, viewed as unrefined by Montresor; however, this lack of refinement has not stopped Fortunato from surpassing Montresor in society, which could very well be the "insult". I continued, as was my wont, to smile in his face, and he did not perceive that my smile now was at the thought of his immolation.

In 1989, Globe Communications Corp did an adaptation in Monsters Attack #2. Artillery Mabbott, Thomas Ollive, editor. Readers learn almost nothing about the background of the characters; nothing is told about their age, their families, their wives and children, their appearance.

I placed my hand upon the solid fabric of the catacombs, and felt satisfied. After all, from what we can glean from the story, Montresor, in spite of the reputed insults of Fortunato, came from an ancient, perhaps noble family, and he is also a person of considerable taste (in gems, in paintings, in wines, and in other matters. The adaptation was written by Albert. The nose lasted for several minutes, during which, that I might hearken to it with the more satisfaction, I ceased my labours and sat down upon the bones. In 2003, Lou Reed included an adaptation on the extended edition of his Poe-themed album The Raven, titled "The Cask" and performed by Willem Dafoe (as Montresor) and Steve Buscemi (as Fortunato). From the last sentence, stating that Fortunatos bones have moldered in the tomb for half a century, one can deduce that they were young men at the time of the tale, which could occur no later than the end of the eighteenth century.

In Poe's story, for example, Fortunato makes reference to the secret society of Masons, similar to the secret society in 1844, and even makes a gesture similar to one portrayed in 1844 (it was a signal of distress). It was written by Archie Goodwin, with art by Reed Crandall. He repeated the movement - a grotesque one. A more allegoric meaning of Poe's places the actors in reverse. It was succeeded by a sad voice, which I had difficulty in recognising as that of the noble Fortunato. It was now midnight, and my task was drawing to a close.
