”The Cask of Amontillado” uses a first-person narrator (a narrator that is a character in the story), and, sometimes, first-person narrators can be unreliable. • How reliable or unreliable do you regard the narrator? • Are there any ways that the narrator might be manipulating the truth? • How would you describe the narrator’s attitude toward himself and his actions? The Cask of Amontillado is a story about revenge. The narrator, who is one of the main characters in this story, is also the person who narrate it .He is not so reliable because he is telling us about the way that he killed Fortunato and a killer is never reliable. Besides he never told us what was that thousand injuries that Fortunato did to him. The killer might be manipulating the truth about what happened that day because he might want us to believe that what he has done is fear and that Fortunato need to be punished of the thousand injuries that he did to him. For instance, he is telling us during the story that he ask Fortunato to go out of the vaults and that Fortunato denied. That means that Fortunato was there by his own choice. He also gave Fortunato something to drink to his cough but I think that’s wine and he was making him to be drunkest. The attitude of the narrator during the story is always a cold one. He really believes that what he was doing was only revenge and that his actions were fear. He planed everything in a way that nobody ever will know what happened to Fortunato because nobody knows that he was with him and he didn’t obligate Fortunato to go to the vaults. For me , The Cask of Amontillado was a very suspense story that leave asking to know more about what happened to Fortunato and know if the narrator was punished for what he has done . Mark brainliest plz.
