Editorial Reviews

“Poe gave the world a fine collection of neurotics, paranoids and psychopaths. But none are quite as deranged as the narrator of The Cask of Amontillado.” New York Times Book Review
“Almost universally referred to as Poe’s most perfect short story; in fact, it has often been considered to be one of the world’s most perfect short stories.” CliffsNotes
