What part of this excerpt from edgar allan poe’s “the cask of amontillado” uses irony?
“The cough is a mere nothing. It will not kill me. I shall not die of a cough” this part of the passage is very ironic because he really won’t die of a cough but he is explaining the cough to be nothing for him to be worried about
Well first off we need to know which excerpt it is Explanation:
a low moaning cry from the depth of the recess, furious vibrations of the chain, and a succession of loud and shrill screams. hope i , as these all darken the tone! : d
The correct answer is “the cough’s a mere nothing; it will not kill me. I shall not die of a cough.”. Taken from the short story “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allan Poe (1846), the part of the excerpt mentioned above that uses irony is the one that narrates the moment when Fortunato tells Montresor that he has a cold before going down into the catacombs, but Montresor already knows how Fortunato’s end will be. Irony is a figure of speech through which words are used in a way that their intended meaning is different from the actual meaning. The use of irony in this part of this excerpt can be spotted when Montresor replies, “True —true.” to Fortunato, since he knows it is true that Fortunato shall not die of a cough.

The answer to ur question is number 5
d. “the cough’s a mere nothing; it will not kill me. I shall not die of a cough.” In the passage, Montressor is leading Fortunato into the catacombs to his death. Montressor does this by playing to Fortunato’s pride in his ability to identify a good wine. Montressor gives him the chance to back out of the deal and go home when he mentions he’d just get Luchesi to try the wine. This makes Fortunato even more determined despite his deteriorating health. Fortunao had a cold before going down into the catacombs but the niter on the wall makes it worse. Eventually his weakened respiratory system and the fumes of the catacombs do kill him.
