- Edgar Allen Poe - 2,429 words
Edgar Allen Poe To be buried while alive is, beyond question, the most terrific of these extremes which has ever fallen to the lot of mere mortality. That it has frequently, very frequently, so fallen will scarcely be denied by those who think. The boundaries that divide life from death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins? Edgar Allan Poe often uses the motif of premature or concealed burials in his literary works. One such story is "The Cask of Amontillado." The story begins around dusk, one evening during the carnival season (similar to the Mardi Gras festival in New Orleans) in an unnamed European city. The location quickly changes f ...

- Poe And Burial Motifs - 1,302 words
... ut Montressor plays with him. He likes to hear the suffering in the voice of his victim. He gets off on causing pain. Replying to Fortunato's plea he mimics "Yes, let us be gone," with contempt in his voice (Poe 7). Montressor has broken another man's spirit, and taken away his life. This makes him happy, because he has upheld a troublesome family motto "Nemo me impune lacessit" ("No one assails me with impunity") (Poe 4). A twisted outdated motto causes the death of Fortunato. The burying of a live body conjures up images of desperation and hopelessness of the victim. Montrtessor has all of the power. He picks the time and place where Fortunato will meet his end. Obvious disregard of li ...

... to the trail of offences. In Director of Public Prosecutions v O Suilleabhain Carroll J cited Attorney General (McDonnell) v Higgins in support of the proposal that a judge is not entitled to prefer charges. At the other hand of this legal process, the protective effect of Article 6 on the executive power to decide on the duration of imprisonment or detention has also been considered by the courts on a number of occasions. In the case Director of Public Prosecution v Tiernan it was for the executive to decide to serve, and, accordingly, the courts could not take that period into account in imposing sentence in a rape case. A recent series of cases has focused attention on the constituti ...

- The Cask Of Amontiallado - 877 words
The Cask Of Amontiallado The Cask of Amontillado Anything not taken in moderation can be damaging. In one of Edgar Allen Poe's best-known tales of horror, The Cask of Amontillado, he suggests that pride can be a very dangerous thing, when one is overwhelmed with it. Through the use of foreshadowing, irony, and symbolism, Poe presents a horrific drama of two men. One who will stop at nothing to get the revenge that he deems himself and his family worthy of, and another who's pride will ultimately be the fall of his own death. Fortunato falls prey to Montressor's plans because he is so proud of his connoisseurship of wine, and it is for the sake of his own pride that Montressor takes revenge o ...

- The Cask Of Amontilladothe Parodox Of Revenge - 1,251 words
The Cask Of Amontillado-The Parodox Of Revenge The Paradox of Revenge "The Cask of Amontillado" raises a question pertaining to the multiple character of the self (Davidson 202); Can harmony of one's self be restored once primal impulses have been acted upon? This question proposes the fantasy of crime without consequence (Stepp 60). Edgar Allan Poe uses first person point of view, vivid symbolism and situational irony to show that because of man's inner self, revenge is ultimately not possible. Edward Davidson suggests that Montresor, the main character of the story, has the power of moving downward from his mind or intellectual being and into his brute or physical self and then return agai ...

- The Cast Of Amontillado - 696 words
The Cast Of Amontillado Edgar Allen Poe, born on January 19, 1809, is one of the greatest American writers of all time. "The story of Edgar Allen Poe's life remains one of the most disputed and slandered in the pages of American biography, despite conscious attempts to revise the story and rehabilitate the life. Decadence and immorality, in the form of alcoholism, opium addiction, and his relationships with women, and prolific production, as a journalist, editor, poet, reviewer, critic, and fiction writer, have been emphasized as characterizing his brief life" (Lent 3). Poe's many writings were greatly affected by his problems in life and his experiences. One such short story is "The Cask of ...
