The story's narrator, Montresor, tells the story of the day that he took his revenge on Fortunato, a fellow nobleman, to an unspecified person who knows him very well. Angry over some unspecified insult, he plots to murder his friend during Carnival when the man is drunk, dizzy, and wearing a jester's motley.

    I was only able to understand and this story a little bit because there were many confusing words. Most of them were words that we haven't even learned yet. And also they were words that no one even uses anymore! I gave it two starts because it was by Edgar Allan Poe
  • Classic horror
