I love this story. It took me two reads the first time I came across it to fully understand it, but I still enjoy it every time.

This has always been my favorite of Poe's stories. Every time I got the opportunity to cover it in class, I did. Every time I found some new aspect to write about. It's such a fascinating story.

I have studied this short story so many times and I still love it! It says so much about human flaws, such as greed. I love how dark Poe's work is, especially regarding imagery. I'm studying to become a teacher and know I will be including "The Cask of Amontillado" in my curriculum.

The dark and gothic taste to it, got me entirely. It is amazing. Shall look forward to more works of this extremely unconventional writer.
