Activity 3: “The Cask of Amontillado” and “The Tell Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe

Questions: “The Cask of Amontillado”
1.Montressor uses reverse psychology to convince his friend Fortunato. Fortunato had knowledge for fine wine and Montressor convinced Fortunato to follow him into the catacombs to determine if the newlypurchased cask of amontillado is authentic.

6. The crime that Montressor committedwas the perfect crime, and I don’t think Montressor has repented he is just telling the story for the sake of it, for whichever person wants to hear it.
7. Montressor committed the perfect crime...
