The Cask of Amontillado

Book cover & Innards

This is an updated cover for Edgar Allan Poe’s ‘The Cask of Amontillado’. ‘The Cask of Amontillado’ is the story of a man named Montressor who decides to seek revenge against his acquaintance Fortunato, who has insulted him. The design is drawing in avid readers, who have an appreciation for Poe’s stories because of the hidden meanings in his stories and the point of view in his stories.

there was then a long and obstinate silence…

the thousand injuries of fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge. You, who so well know the nature of my soul, will not suppose, however, that I gave utterance to a threat. At length I would be avenged; this was a point definitely settled—but the very definitiveness with which it was resolved, precluded the idea of risk. I must not only punish, but punish with impunity. A wrong is unredressed when retribution overtakes its redresser. It is equally unredressed when the avenger fails to make himself felt as such to him who has done the wrong.
