how to summarize from an swbs
How to summarize from an SWBS

Think in terms of an SWBS…

  • SOMEBODY: Monstresor
  • WANTED: to take revenge on Fortunato
  • BUT: he didn’t want anyone, except Fortunato, to know that it was him that did it
  • SO: he lured him into the caverns under his mansion and sealed him into a crypt

Then write it in sentence form…

  • “This story is about a man named Monstresor who wanted to take revenge on Fortunato, but he didn’t want anyone else to know he had done it. So he lured Fortunato down into the caverns under his mansion, locked him in a crypt, and sealed up the entrance with bricks.”

Look at the story’s WANTED…

  • Montresor wanted to lure Fortunato into his caverns and seal him in a crypt.

Now think about what the WANT is dealing with…

  • Montresor’sdesire is about revenge.
  • Fortunato’s desire is to be respected as an expert in wine.

Therefore, some of the themes that “The Cask of Amontillado” is dealing with are:



how to find and explain meaning
How to find (and explain) meaning
  • Remember, meaning is negotiated between writer and reader
  • The writer provides the story, the plot, and the theme
  • We bring our own experiences and opinions to discover meaning
  • An example: “I think the meaning of the story is revenge does as much harm to the person who takes revenge.” And why? “Because the person who takes revenge has to live with his (or her) actions for the rest of their life.”
1 st 2 nd and 3 rd person perspective
1st, 2nd, and 3rd Person Perspective
  • 1st person—a character in the story is telling it
    • Uses “I, my, me…”
    • “I saw a man standing on the corner. He motioned me to come over…”
  • 2nd person—the narrator of the story is talking to “you”
    • “You see a man standing on the corner. He motions you to come over…”
  • 3rd person—someone outside of the story is telling it to you
    • “Peter was standing on the corner. He motioned to Sally to come over…”
fiction vs nonfiction
Fiction vs. Nonfiction
  • Fiction is made up (fake)
  • Nonfiction is real (non-fake)

A trick:

    • Fiction = Fake
    • NonFiction = Not Fake = Real
  • When several or more words in a sentence begin with the same sound and create an “effect.”

“Three grey geese in a green field grazing”

A Trick:

“Alliteration” sounds like it has the word “litter” in it. Think of a sentence as having been “littered” with the same beginning sound.

dictionary definitions
Dictionary Definitions

If you look up the word “mason” in a dictionary, you’ll get more than one result:

1. a person whose trade is building with units of various natural or artificial mineral products, as stones, bricks, cinder blocks, or tiles, usually with the use of mortar or cement as a bonding agent.

2. a person who dresses stones or bricks.

3. a member of the secret society of the Freemasons.

Don’t just write the first one! Read each one to see which one fits the story.
