The last characteristic of montresor’s

The last characteristic of montresor’s, which helped him accomplish this murder was reverse psychology. He uses reverse psychology to make fortunato want to come with him . For example Montresor’s says, ” I am on my way to Luchesi. If anyone has a critical turn it is he. He will tell me–.”(210) This was followed by Fortunato saying “Luchesi cannot tell Amontillado from Sherry.”(210) Knowing Fortunato wants to come with, he still insists with luchesi to make fortunato insist on coming. Montresor also uses reverse psychology by saying , “We will go back; you are ill, and I cannot be responsible”( 211). From these two quotes you can conclude that by montresor realizing fortunato’s arrogance and mentioning amontillado , he didn’t even need to ask him to come with because fortunato persisted. Then montresor saying they should leave, increased fortunato mind set on getting to the amontillado.
