In “The Cask of Amontillado”, Edgar Allen Poe uses foreshadowing to build suspense. He begins to foreshadow in the first paragraph when the main character vows revenge on Fortunato, a man that did him a wrong. He speaks of punishing him with impunity. This foreshadows the merciless method he uses to kill Fortunato. Another example of foreshadowing is when Poe refers to Fortunato’s weak point, but never really tells the readers what it is; he only talks about how much Fortunato enjoys wine. This foreshadows that his connoisseurship in wine will be his downfall, which it is because his pride in wine knowledge lures him into the catacombs. A third way Poe employs foreshadowing is when Fortunato talks about the masons to Montressor and Montressor
