The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allan Poe Paragraph. Montresor is a villain in “The Cask of Amontillado” because he is sweet and trustworthy in the beginning to Fortunato, but ends up killing Fortunato. For instance, Montresor raises a toast to Fortunato’s long life and Montresor tells Fortunato they will go back because Fortunato’s health is important. It’s understandable that Montresor toasts to his friend’s long life after Fortunato was coughing a lot because no one wants their friend to die young. When Fortunato is coughing a lot, Montresor tells Fortunato they should go back because Fortunato’s health is precious. Furthermore, Montresor kills Fortunato after saying all those sweet things to him. After Fortunato falls to the ground because he is dead, Montresor shouts Fortunato’s name as if he cares. When it’s confirmed Fortunato is is dead, Montresor puts Fortunato’s body with other bones lying around and blows out the torch, so there is no more light there. Montresor is the bad guy in “The Cask of Amontillado” because he says really nice things and proves himself trustable to Fortunato at the beginning of the story, but he turns out to be a killer.
