In Latin, "montresor" means_"no one provokes me without impunity." We never know what exactly Fortunato has done to so enrage Montresor (although some guesses may be his borish nature and snobbishness) and "Fortunato" itself is an ironic name.
How do you explain irony? Irony is a figure of speech in which words are used in such a way that their intended meaning is different from the actual meaning of the words. It may also be a situation that ends up in quite a different way than what is generally anticipated. In simple words, it is a difference between appearance andreality.
Who is Montresor telling the story to? While the person to whom Montresor narrates the story of his revenge is never specified, several clues indicate he is telling it to his priest. First, he addresses the person as "You, who so well know the nature of my soul." The term "soul" rather than "me" would indicate he addresses aspiritual advisor.
