On the basis of A Cask of Amontillado and The Tell-Tale Heart, ..
There are a number of differences noted in the two stories. The narrator in The Tell Tale Heart accomplishes his act indoors. The murder takes place in the old man’s room. Meanwhile, Fortunato is buried alive in the tombs by Montressor. The narrator in The Tell Tale Heart used a murder weapon that is the old man’s bed, to finish him off. On the contrary, the murderer just chains the victim then seals the entrance. The old man is full of fear and the narrator tells us that he even heard his heart beat. He lets out a scream, which attracted a neighbor who called the police. In the second story, the victim also lets out screams but he seems to take it as a joke by the way he talks to Montressor. At some point, he shouts “Ha! Ha! Ha! A very good joke in deed… an excellent jest…” (Poe, The Cask of Amontillado, 1988).
