On this website you will find a summary that ponders the question not how did Montresor commit
this awful crime but instead why did he do it? This critical essay will discuss not only this question but also the many other
mysteries of Edgar Allen Poe's The Cask of Amontillado.
This website not only discusses The Cask of Amontillado and the reasons for what
happens in the story; but also ponders what went on in Poe's "sinister mind".
