Edgar Allan Poe

The Cask of Amontillado

The Cask of Amontillado," which first appeared in Godey's Lady's Book in 1846, is a classic example of the use of an unreliable narrator. Montresor tells his tale of revenge smugly, as he invites the reader to applaud his cleverness much like the narrator of “The Tell-Tale Heart.” By telling the story from Montresor's point of view, Poe forces the reader to look into the inner workings of a murderer's mind.
