Describe your experience of reading Poe’s “The Fall of the House of Usher” or “The Cask of Amontillado.” To what extent did the short story you chose to write about hold your interest? Why?

A

I have chosen to describe my experience while reading Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Cask of Amontillado.” The reason I chose to read this short story is that I have an interest in murder stories, especially those of unresolved or unrepentant perpetrators. This story, in particular, held my interest because of the way it speaks of a friendship that was troubled by miscommunication and ended by revenge in the most horrific way possible, that of being buried alive. The most interesting part of this story was the character study of Montresor. He remained unrepentant of his crime till the very end. He was practically flaunting that he had committed the perfect crime, having gotten away with it for the past 50 years.
