Probably my favorite piece by Poe. I know everyone loves Lovecraft, and there's little doubt as to his influence on the genre and he did write some great works, but I'd take Poe any day. But then it's always subjective, isn't it? The first time I read this, I was in high school and it seriously creeped me out. But then I had grown up a sheltered youth, so perhaps that's understandable because while still an excellent story, it doesn't hold the creep factor it once did after having read so much nightmarish crap, both fictional and real. Nonetheless, strongly recommended. ( )

Meh. I'm not a fan of Poe nor his writing style, but I have to admit that this short story was perfect to read with students with the lights off today. ( )

I read this just after reading The Serpent of Venice... and completely missed the terror of the story as I was imagining Pocket, the Fool, with his filthy jokes. As a story, I found the revenge part wanting, as there was no monologue, and also, there was a distinct lack of Amontillado. I feel cheated. ( )

Typically this is considered a tale of revenge. I'm going to go out on a limb and argue that it's not. The only notion we have of revenge--of the narrator, Montresor, actually being wronged--comes in the wonderfully vague opening sentence: "The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge." It's Montresor himself who insists this is a revenge tale, but of course he's the ultimate unreliable narrator, so we shouldn't take him at his word. Notice that we get not a single detail concerning any of these injuries or insults. Typically you'd expect someone plotting revenge to stew over all those little details ad nauseam. Instead, we only know that Fortunato is a wine connoisseur and that "[i]n painting and gemmary Fortunato, like his countrymen, was a quack." It seems that, at some level, Montresor simply doesn't like Fortunato (or perhaps doesn't like all Italians, especially Fortunato) and decides to kill him for no other reason than that. You also get the sense that Fortunato is more successful than the narrator (his name, Fortunato, isn't particularly subtle), so perhaps the killing is simply the result of jealousy. There's also that wonderful scene where Fortunato makes a Masonic sign, which the narrator doesn't understand (and call "grotesque"), and Montresor replies by producing a trowel from beneath his clothes and saying he's a mason, too. A grim joke, but one that points again to the jealousy burning inside him.

OK, enough argument! The most important point is that this a wonderfully macabre tale that reprises several of Poe's major themes. I won't spoil the ending. I'll just say that it's a tale that leaves you thinking long after the reading is done. Not just thinking, but feeling: the damp caverns, the piles of bones, and the ever thickening "nitre" that "hangs like moss upon the vaults." ( )

I love how Poe writes. This beautifully dark but short tale of revenge from a vague-motived murder's point of view who chains up his "friend" and entombs him alive behind a wall. ( )
