Poe’s story is easy to find online. One of the best ways is to go the Google and type in The University of Virginia Library, Electronic Texts, The Cask of Amontillado. You will have your own reactions to the story; you will want to use those reactions along with three or four scholarly articles to present your own literary essay. You’ll provide in-text references and a works cited listing according to ML guidelines.
