How does the setting create a different mood from that of the jungle outside? Support your answer with details from the story. 2. The word game can have two different denotations. Explain both: 3. Identify an example of foreshadowing from the beginning of the story: 4. What three tricks does Rainsford use during the game? 5. What do the tricks tell you about Rainsford? 6. Considering #3 & 4, what kind of characterization is this? 7. What do you think Zaroff means when he says to himself, the American hadn t played the game? 8. Theme: What message about human nature do you think the author conveys in this story? 9. Visual Imagery: Discuss the various ways that color is used to set a mood in the story. How does such visual language add to the development of the setting? 10. Setting: How does the fact that the story took place on an island contribute to the story? 11. Do you think the story is a commentary on the ethics of hunting? Why or why not? What moral positions about hunting could be drawn from the story?

2 Plot: Draw a colored map of Ship Trap Island on a piece of 8 ½ x 11unlined paper. Number EVERY location around the island identified in the short story in the order they appeared in the story. On the back of your map, make a key that lists the numbers of the locations with a brief description of each location. Fold and attach that map here. DO NOT USE MARKERS! Neatness counts.

4 The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe 1. Hyperbole is the use of exaggeration to make a point. Look at the fi rst paragraph. What phrase used by the narrator is an example of hyperbole? Write down the full sentence that includes the hyperbolic element. Does this line make you more sympathetic or less toward the narrator/murderer? Why? 2. Montresor tells us, A wrong is unredressed when retribution overtakes its redresser. It is equally unredressed when the avenger fails to make himself felt as such to him who has done the wrong. In your own words, explain what this means. 3. Explain the characterization of Fortunado. What is it about Montresor that makes him an especially effective enemy to Fortunato? Give an example from a book you ve read or a film/t.v. show you ve seen in which this type of villain exists. 4. Fortunato, who has been out drinking and enjoying Carnival, is wearing a clown s hat. Symbolically, why is this an interesting and appropriate costume choice by the writer, Edgar Allan Poe? 5. To whom, do you suppose, is Montresor telling this story? Upon what evidence do you base your assumption? 6. Name three of the many clever things Montresor does to lure Fortunato into his trap. 7. How did Montresor ensure that no servants would be around to witness the crime? 8. Poe uses several elements of foreshadowing. Write down (or paraphrase) two lines that foreshadow the grisly event at the end of the tale. 9. Locate and write down a line that includes verbal irony.

5 10. This is the Montresor family s coat of arms. Symbolically, why is this an appropriate image for our narrator? 12. When Montresor offers the Medoc wine to Fortunato, what is the reason he gives for wanting the other man to drink? What is the real reason? Why does Montresor also have a drink? 13. At the end of the story, what makes Montresor feel sick? 14. Is Montresor a reliable or unreliable narrator? Explain your answer. 15. Poe is a master at creating an eerie, suspenseful mood in his stories. Dig back into the text of this story and write down two lines that help establish this mood. Yes, I want you to write down the full line. 15. Montresor acts as judge, jury, and executioner of Fortunato. Is there any crime/offense that Fortunato could have unwittingly committed that would make Montresor s rage seem reasonable to you? Do you think individuals are ever justified in taking justice into their own hands? Explain your thoughts. Draw a Freytag s pyramid of the short story. Include exposition, rising action, climax, falling action and resolution:
