'The Cask of Amontillado' is Edgar Allan Poe's short but enigmatic masterpiece. Set in an unnamed Italian City we hear the story of how Montresor lures Fortunato through the catacombs into the Montresor family vault and there chains him up and bricks him in for eternity. Why he does it we will never know, but he does so with a casual savagery that is truly chilling.

Cask' was recorded on location in ancient vaults. Every footstep and cough, every brick and every echo are captured and you will never forget hearing the final, faraway declamation: 'In pace requiescat'

Listener Opinions

    " One of my favorite Poe's! The symbolism screams at the reader from carnival to alcove. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erika | 2/5/2014

    " Loved the irony used in the story, dark humor is effective to the story. Confusing at first, but after further discussion, understood at a different level. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joel | 2/4/2014

    " I probably just have bad taste, but this short story was rather boring in my opinion, although the end was good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loftus3b | 2/2/2014

    " Possibly the greatest American author, I would read any and all Poe. Just as good on the 15th time through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 1/26/2014

    " I originally read this short story in grade 10, but Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles makes reference to it, and I had to read it again. It is still quite creepy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alicia | 1/18/2014

    " This is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe. It's a very quick read. The narrator takes a deadly revenge on someone he believes insulted him. I did have to use the dictionary a couple of times,but it was still a great read. Chilling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 1/17/2014

    " this is the best story of revenge ever ever ever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shanna | 1/17/2014

    " I love Poe, and this story is one of the few short stories I remember from high school. I teach it to my freshmen now, and they love the eerie, unforgetable denouement. What I love about it is Poe's clever use of irony, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a clever story full of surprise. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cari | 1/16/2014

    " This is the first short story by Poe that I read... I instantly fell in love with his writing. Everyone must read this at least once in their lives. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 12/26/2013

    " My absolute favorite of Poe's short stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caitlin | 12/18/2013

    " My favorite short story by Poe. It really blows your mind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly Lingenfelter | 12/17/2013

    " I love the humor in this story. It's not apparent the first time you read it, but go back through it and it's hysterical! Well, hysterical in a dark, morbid way. One of my favorite Poe stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ted | 12/8/2013

    " Toby Keith's "It's a Little Too Late" video was inspired by this story. One guy gets another guy drunk and builds a wall in the basement that basically closes the drunk inside with no way out, and then seals him inside and leaves him to rot! Cool! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 10/30/2013

    " So good - I've read this countless times in college. I feel like half the English classes I took had us read this : ) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 5/6/2013

    " Just a short story, but genius!! Such a great writer! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ines Valenzuela | 4/2/2013

    " LOVE POE! He is fantastic: dark, macabre, thrilling and not too gross if you want a good, scary story! Highly recommend it, although I am not sure if it is for EVERYONE. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsey | 1/22/2013

    " So evil I loved it :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan Glover | 11/30/2012

    " A deliciously chilling tale of a revenge that far exceeds the small offenses which motivated it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerry | 10/26/2012

    " This is hands down one of my top five favorite short stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bruce | 10/11/2012

    " I seem to reread this classic short story every few years, and it always retains its freshness. What an atmosphere of foreboding Poe is able to conjure with so few words. As much is communicated by what he does not say as by what he does. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Celeste | 9/1/2012

    " It Poe and another of his ideas of an interesting death. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adriana | 4/19/2012

    " soo poe! loved it, all I could feel the moist and the smell! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Lowery | 11/10/2011

    " I wouldn't want to piss Montresor off! Lol! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ee-Ling | 8/6/2011

    " A chilling story. Revenge at its very best. The whole story is very dark and disturbing (that's normally how I feel when I read Poe's works). But that's what Poe does best - Gothic horror. "
