PART B: Which of the following quotes best supports the answer to Part A?
How does the description of the Montresor coat of arms and motto (provided in the lines below) contribute to the reader’s understanding of Montresor’s character? Select TWO:
"The Montresors," I replied, "were a great and numerous family."
"I forget your arms."
"A huge human foot d'or, in a field azure; the foot crushes a serpent rampant whose fangs are embedded in the heel."
"And the motto?"
"Nemo me impune lacessi" (translation: No one attacks me with impunity) *impunity: without consequence
This line takes place in the final paragraph of the story, just as Montresor is finishing walling Fortunato into the catacombs to die: “My heart grew sick; it was the dampness of the catacombs that made it so.” What insight into the narrator’s point of view does this line likely provide the reader?
