The Cask of Amontillado by manonquinn
Goal: Develop a deeper understanding of the characters in "Cask of Amontillado" by doing a close reading of the first three paragraphs.

Close reading of "Cask of Amontillado," Section1

Close reading:
  1. Open your copy of "Cask of Amontillado."
  2. If you didn't make your own copy yesterday you can get a copy of the text here
I'll be using some slides in class to walk us through this process. I'll add them here later for your review. 


  • Read your book for 30 minutes. You should be almost 2/3 done about now.
  • Tomorrow you will have some time in class to finish reading "Cask of Amontillado," but if you have not done your prediction chart up through section 2 then you need to catch up tonight. 
  • If you did not complete the paragraph about irony and theme in "Possibility of Evil" from 2/6 last week you also need to complete that.
