and give specific detail about you opinion if you agree or not .The main themes in “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allen Poe according to Melanie Spiller are revenge, uncontrolled ego and the feeling of being lost. I noticed a few more themes throughout the story, which are the theme of weakness and the theme of the underworld.Fortunato has many weaknesses, such as oenophilia, conceitedness and naiveness. When Montresor knew Fortunato’s weaknesses it was very easy for him to manipulate drunk Fortunato into going into his vaults. Fortunato’s conceitedness kept leading him further into the trap because he didn’t want Montesor to ask another wine expert, Luchesi for help. And then naiveness, the whole time he thought that Montesor was his friend and without any suspicion followed him into his vaults, when the whole time Montesor only wanted him dead. Even when Montesor was building the wall to trap him, he believed it was a joke to the very end. Fortunato’s carnival costume also represents his naiveness and foolishness.Another theme that I identified when I was reading “The Cask of Amontillado” is the underworld or a path into hell. Human flesh and bones all over the walls of the underground tunnel represented a path to hell and foreshadowed Fortunato’s death for what he did to Montesor. And because Montesor is no better than Fortuno and wanted to get revenge, it represented his path to hell as well.I am not a fan of horror stories or films, but I remember watching “Escape Room” a few months ago. The main theme of the film in my opinion is survival. A group of people gets invited to play escape room and each room has different clues for the players which would help them to get out. To survive they have to find the clues because if they don’t find the clues they will be trapped, since everything is timed and with each mistake the rooms become more and more dangerous.
