The Cask of Amontillado

The Cask of Amontillado

By Edgar Allan Poe
Book Description

The story is set in a nameless Italian city in an unspecified year (possibly sometime during the eighteenth century) and concerns the deadly revenge taken by the narrator on a friend who he claims has insulted him. Like several of Poe's stories, and in keeping with the 19th-century fascination with the subject, the narrative revolves around a person being buried alive--in this case, by immurement.
