Thesis statement for Critical essay on "The Cask of Amontillado" answers: 1 darreninthaiThreads: 1Posts: 1Author: Curt Mathis Jul 16, 2013, 01:13pm #1 I have to write a critical essay on this story and I have a couple of Thesis statements. Can anyone tell me which one is better or do I need to make any changes.Edgar Allen Poe develops the theme that pride is a destructive force by showing the lengths that Montressor will go to in order to exact revenge on Fortunato. Edgar Allen Poe develops the theme that Montressor's character is consumed by pride that does not allow him to change who he is and goes to lengths to hint at his static character. Any help is much appreciated! jkjeremyThreads: -Posts: 444Author: John Jeremy: essayHELPforum.com 72 Jul 16, 2013, 02:24pm #2 Given the choice of only these two, the first is stronger.However, there's no way for me to be sure until I know the actual essay question.
