Revenge turns deadly when the narrator, Montressor, buries his friend, Fortunato, alive as the result of a perceived insult. Like A??The Black CatA? and A??The Tell-Tale Heart,A? A??The Cask of AmontilladoA? is remarkable for being conveyed from the murdererA??s perspective.
A pioneer of the short story genre, PoeA??s stories typically captured themes of the macabre and included elements of the mysterious. His better-known stories include A??The Fall of the House of UsherA?, A??The Pit and the PendulumA?, A??The Murders in the Rue MorgueA?, A??The Masque of the Red DeathA? and A??The Tell-Tale HeartA?.
