    In “The Cask of Amontillado” Poe uses language to first create a sense of intrigue and to create an enticing character and situation before expanding his rhetorical strategy to further keep readers in a state of suspense. Although for the most part, it remains a mystery throughout “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allan Poe why the narrator harbors such hatred toward Fortunato, this missing information serves to build more suspense and to make the reader more in tune with the words Montresor speaks as he leads his enemy to his death. Aside from creating this closer attention to language on the part of the reader, Poe also uses language to create a sense of impending doom in “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allan Poe. One of the keys to the suspense that carries through the story is foreshadowing and Poe achieves this through language that creates a sense of place as well as foreboding. In sum, the story of “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allan Poe relies on descriptive words and images to create a sense of atmosphere that is parallel to the story’s dark plot
