IMPORTANT: The assignment I have chosen is based on Edgar Allen Poe’s The Cask of Amontillado. Students are required to cite SIX direct quotes from the story, and TWO indirect quotes from outside sources. Since you don’t have the required text, The Norton Introduction to Literature, Shorter 13th Edition, you can find Cask anywhere on the internet — like here
Basically, your job is to answer a simple question:
"In ‘"The Cask of Amontillado"’, what qualities of gothic literature do we see? What is/are the effect(s) of these gothic elements?". Now, I don’t know anything about gothic literature — which is why I’ve hired you. But what I do know about is the Bible — I want that book to be the sole outside source used for this work, primarily from Psalms and other parts of the Old Testament, and perhaps the books of Revelation and Ephesians. I feel the LORD telling me to include the gospel of John in this work too.
Lastly, the ‘elephant in the room’ is the fact that you don’t have the properly-formatted reading (from the textbook) for this assignment. That’s fine: I can change that. But I still need you to work at citing The Cask of Amontillado from the PDF document I included as a link in an earlier paragraph. If it does not show up that way, the copy of the link is: https://www.ibiblio.org/ebooks/Poe/Amontillado.pdf. I obviously have no business asking your religion, but I am a Christian (as you can probably tell) and feel that throwing some apoolyptic elements from Revelation into the mix. And because I believe the Bible IS the inspired Word of God, that means I believe — in one way or another — that what God wrote through John is true. I am saying this because I believe that Montresor, the narrator, is Satan, or the Amontillado, with the first indication coming from a dialogue in the first half of this short story: "My friend, no. It is not the engagement, but the severe cold with which I perceive you are afflicted. The vaults are insufferably damp. They are encrusted with nitre. Let us go, nevertheless. The cold is merely nothing. Amontillado! You have been imposed upon. And as for Luchresi, he cannot distinguish Sherry from Amontillado (good from evil). Thus speaking, Fortunado possessed himself of my arm; and putting on a mask of black silk and drawing a roquelaire closely about my person, I suffered him to hurry me to my palazzo (hell)" (p. 175 from the textbook; annotations mine). What we are dealing with is a battle of good and evil that is, despite the traditional interpretations of Cask and other literature, buried under layers of cryptic symbolism.
Anyway, I think that is all. Obviously the biblical stuff shouldn’t be the primary focus of the story, hence the question you have been asked to answer through this essay. I want it to rest in the background of the reader’s imagination as you set out to do some investigating. My best wishes are for you to enjoy this assignment.
