The Cask of Amontillado

Answer the following questions and explain your answer. Is revenge ever justified?

In my opinion revenge is never justified, unless you would read the behind the scenes information, where it states that the reason for killing "Mr.Green" was for killing their fellow soldier who had done nothing to deserve the awful treatment, murder, he had gotten. But if the question is directed to the story with no additional information than no, it is not justified because all the story says is that he had been insulted by Fortunato many times and that the last insult he received hurt him gravely. We don't know to what extent was the insult, it might have been just a silly name calling or it could've also been a severe insult like the murder of a family member or a push and pull from Fortunato. Either way, with or without extra information no human being has the right to take the life of another human being, for any justified or unjustified. Because for us Christians the only "person" who is authorized to give and take away life is God. Att: Natasha N. Maldonado
