The Dunwich Horror by H. P. Lovecraft

Since the story is told in the first person, we do not explicitly learn the name of the narrator until the end. Until then, he is called a "narrator." Alright, let's go.

The narrator begins by telling us that Fortunato hurt him. To make matters worse, Fortunato insulted him. Narrator must take revenge. He meets a Fortunato dressed in a jester for a carnival celebration-already very drunk. Narrator says he found a rare barrel of barrel called Amontillado. Fortunato has a strong interest in verifying the authenticity of wine.

Therefore, he and the narrator go to the catacombs of the Montresor family, or "catacombs." Apparently, a narrator keeps his wine there. The narrator guides Fortunato deeper into the catacombs and intoxicates him on the way. Fortunate continues to cough, and narrators always suggest that Fortunate cannot return to being in a sick and damp crypt, so he should return. Fortunato continues to talk about Amontillad.

After all, Fortunato goes into a person-sized hole that is part of a very annoying basement wall. The narrator connects the Fortunato to the wall and fills the opening with bricks to begin closing the Fortunato in the hole. When he leaves one brick, he psychologically tortures Fortunato until he begs for mercy-and we finally learn the name of the narrator: Fortunato calls him "Montresor."

After Fortunato yelled Montresor's name, he has no more lines. However, just before Montresor puts the last brick, Fortunato rings his bell. Then Montresor finishes his work and leaves him dead there. Finally, Montresor told us that all the incidents happened fifty years ago, and no one has discovered.
