During the duration of the story their drunkenness causes them to do things that normally they wouldn't do. They blindly attempt to take on Prospero, a powerful sorcerer and scheme how to defeat and kill him. Who in their sober mind take on an all powerful sorcerer? This is quite amusing because it shows us how incredibly foolish we act when we are drunk. Of course their attempt to take on Prospero proves to be futile, instead they play dress up with his cloaks and when Prospero shows up, Stephano and Trinculo run for their lives and leave Calaban behind carrying the clothes they attempted to steal.
Once, at a New Year’s party, he throws a rocket bottle towards her which explodes against her back. In addition, he would not miss any chance to abuse her sexually, when alone or in presence of somebody else, such as attempting to pull her towel when she came out of shower. “He does that kind of shit all the time”, she’d said. “Trying to see me without my clothes, come stumbling in the bathroom with his thing in his hand.

Montressor waits for the perfect moment so he can kill Fortunato without getting caught. Finally, he seizes the moment to act upon the revenge he’s been waiting for one night when he finds Fortunato in a drunken state after a carnival. He lures Fortunato into his home by challenging his connoisseurship of wine. He allows Fortunato to believe that he is inviting him because he would like to test his knowledge in wine against another connoisseur. Fortunato is sick with a constant cough, and to top it off very drunk, which in this state he... ... middle of paper ... ...nd tries not to make a sound.
”(133) This stirs up Fortunato's pride and makes him offer to check Montresor's amontillado instead of Luchesi, his supposed rival in wine expertise. Additionally, he plans the date of his murder on the carnival so Fortunato would be drunk as well as being inconspicuous to wear a mask and a costume so nobody would be able to identify the person that went off with Fortunato. When Fortunato arrives at the vault he makes a scene where he seems genuinely caring and toasts him, “'And I to your long life.' ”(135) The irony is that Fortunato won't have to wait long before his demise and that Montresor only said it to advert suspicion from Fortunato. He managed to trick Fortunato until the very end which proves how clever he is.
Montresor is such an interesting character because he is the perfect killer. He has his own crazy motive, and he follows through with everything he said he vowed to do. Montresor was patient until it was the right time to go through with his plan to kill. He also deeply wanted Fortunato to know that he was his killer, and he accomplished it as well. Montresor was humorous, twisted, and got everything he wanted out of his kill.
Fortunato switches to the protagonist at the end of the story, considering, whatever he did to Montresor could not have been that awful to make it necessary for him to be killed. Montresor is a very twisted character, since he had a pre-meditated plan for revenge on Fortunato and did not feel guilty for killing him which all mark his transformation into an
Throughout the play, Oedipus is faced with the truth and fails to acknowledge it. He is first told by the drunk at the party, but he dismisses it as just something said by an ignorant drunk. He then visits the oracle and is told his fate determined by the gods and believes he can escape it by fleeing to Thebes. On his way he carries out the first part of the fate by killing his father. He then makes it to Thebes and marries Jocasta, unknowingly fulfilling the fate.
At the end of the story Montresor does punish Fortunato by chaining Villegas4 him up against the wall and build... ... middle of paper ... ...oquelaire a trowel.”(Poe23) because he’s prepared and plans to build the stone wall where Fortunato will die. A Bright hub editor suggests that the “carnival season lends the story it’s fantastic nature, a nature trumped only by the madness of Montresor’s revenge.” Montresor’s anger was probably sensed in the carnival by the people surrounding him and even if the carnival was meant to celebrate and enjoy a good time. There was no way Montresor would forgive and forget Fortunato. Villegas8 Throughout the story symbolism and Irony are both used to have the readers figure out what each object really represents instead of its original significance. And to see how verbal Irony is used and how its sarcastic towards the situation of Fortunato being punished by Montresor.
He faked insanity so that no one would be suspicious of him trying to kill Claudius. He rigged the play to try and get Claudius to admit his crime. Another similarity between the two is that they are both very well skilled in fencing. Now this ties into Laertes getting revenge for his father’s in that Claudius set up a fencing match against Hamlet and Laertes as an extra precaution says “I’ll touch my point with this contagion, that if I gall him slightly, it may be death.” (4.7.160-162) So he plans to dip the end of his sword in poison so that if Hamlet receives even a scratch he will be
