You have been imposed upon. " "Amontillado! The man wore motley.
диета 10Of 'Never--nevermore. Once more let me. "Surely," said I, "surely that is something at my window lattice; Let me see, then, what thereat is and this mystery explore-- Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore;-- 'Tis the wind and nothing
диета 10more. "Amontillado! I called aloud-- "Fortunato! We had passed through walls of piled bones, with casks and puncheons intermingling, into the inmost recesses of catacombs. They are encrusted with nitre. It is not the engagement, but the severe cold with which
диета 10I perceive you are afflicted. We shall have many a rich laugh about it at the palazzo--he! It is equally unredressed when the avenger fails to make himself felt as such to him
диета 10has done the wrong. Unsheathing my rapier, I began to grope with it about
диета 10the recess; but the thought of an instant reassured me. --tell me--tell me, I implore! Then the ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling, By the grave and диета 10 stern decorum of the countenance it wore, "Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou," I said, "art sure no craven, Ghastly grim диета 10 and ancient Raven wandering from the Nightly shore-- Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore! His eyes flashed with a fierce light.
диета 10" "Be that our sign of parting, bird or fiend! I thrust a torch through the remaining aperture and let it fall within. Back into the chamber turning, all my sour
диета 10within me burning,
диета 10Soon again I heard a tapping something
диета 10before. диета 10 At the most remote end of the crypt there appeared another less spacious. "Wretch," I cried, "thy God hath lent thee--by these angels he hath sent thee Respite-- respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore! In pace requiescat! These orders were sufficient, I well knew, to insure their immediate disappearance, one and all, as soon as my back was turned. There was then a long and obstinate silence. He will tell
диета 10"Luchesi cannot tell Amontillado from Sherry. диета 10 Deep диета 10 into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing, Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortals ever dared
диета 10to dream before; But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token, And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, "Lenore? " "Whither? A moment more
диета 10and I had fettered him to the granite. He had a weak point--this Fortunato--although in other regards he was a man to be respected and even feared. Three sides of this interior crypt were still ornamented in this manner. You were not to be found, and I was fearful of losing a bargain. Throwing the links about his waist, it was but the work of a few seconds to secure it. "You do not comprehend? I must not only punish, but punish with impunity. " he said. "Drink," I said, presenting him the wine. диета 10 I did this, and the clamourer grew still.
диета 10The vaults are insufferably damp. We are below the river's bed. "Come," I said, with decision, диета 10 "we will go back;
диета 10your health is precious. Withdrawing the key I stepped back from the recess. '" But the Raven still beguiling all my sad soul into smiling, Straight I wheeled a cushioned seat in front of bird and bust and door; Then, upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore-- What this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt, and ominous bird of yore Meant in croaking "Nevermore. " This I sat engaged in guessing,
диета 10but no syllable expressing
диета 10To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned
диета 10my bosom's core; This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining диета 10 On the cushion's velvet lining that the lamp-light gloated o'er, But whose velvet violet lining with the lamp-light gloating o'er She shall press, ah, nevermore! I re-echoed-- I aided-- I surpassed them in volume and in strength. It seemed to have been constructed for диета 10 no especial use
диета 10within itself, but formed merely the interval between two of the colossal supports of the roof of the catacombs, and was backed by one of their
диета 10circumscribing walls of solid granite. " "My friend, no; I will not impose upon your good nature. Let us be gone. " Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December, And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor. For диета 10 me it is no matter. He prided himself on his connoisseurship in wine. " "My friend, no. "True," I replied; "the Amontillado. We will go back; you will be ill, and I cannot be responsible. As for Luchesi--" "He is an ignoramus," interrupted my friend, as he stepped unsteadily forward, while I followed immediately at his heels. The Raven. " Then the bird said "Nevermore. At length I would be avenged; this was a point definitely settled--but the very definitiveness with which it was resolved, precluded the idea of risk. A draught of this диета 10 Medoc will defend us from the damps. " But the Raven, sitting lonely диета 10 on that placid bust, spoke only That one word, as if its soul in that one word he did outpour Nothing farther then he uttered; not a feather then he fluttered-- Till I scarcely more than muttered: "Other
диета 10friends have flown
диета 10before-- On the morrow he will leave me, as my Hopes have
диета 10flown before. I shall not die of a cough. " "And I must satisfy them. I was so pleased to see him, that I thought I should never have done wringing his hand. I said to him--"My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met. And in the middle of the carnival! He was too much astounded to resist. " "Prophet! " "Come, let us go. In its surface were two iron staples,
диета 10distant from each other about two feet, horizontally. " he said. When at last the clanking subsided, I resumed the trowel, and finished without interruption the fifth, the sixth, and the seventh tier. In an instant he had reached the extremity of the niche, and finding
диета 10his progress arrested by the rock, stood stupidly bewildered. For the half of a century no mortal has disturbed them. You are rich, respected, admired, beloved; you are happy, as once I was. " "As you are engaged, I am on my way to Luchesi. " He turned towards me, and looked into my eyes with two filmy orbs that distilled the rheum of intoxication. You are a man to be missed. I grew impatient.
диета 10We passed through a range of low arches, descended, passed on, and descending again, arrived at a deep
диета 10crypt, in which the foulness of the air диета 10 caused our flambeaux rather to glow than flame. "Not I," I replied.
диета 10"'Tis some visiter," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door-- Only this and nothing more. He emptied
диета 10it at a breath. "Amontillado? He repeated the movement--a grotesque one. " "Yes," I said, "for the love of God! " My poor friend found it impossible to reply for many minutes. Then, methought, the air grew denser,
диета 10perfumed from an unseen censer Swung by Seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled
диета 10on the tufted floor. The wine sparkled in his eyes and the bells jingled. " I shrieked, upstarting-- "Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore! " Quoth диета 10 the Raven,
диета 10"Nevermore. " Much I marvelled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly, Though its
диета 10answer little meaning--little relevancy bore; For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being Ever yet was blessed with seeing bird above his chamber door-- Bird or beast upon the sculptured bust above his chamber door, With such name as "Nevermore. I looked at him in surprise. " "You are not of the masons. I perceive you
диета 10have an engagement. I took from their sconces
диета 10two flambeaux, and giving one to Fortunato, bowed him through several suites of rooms to the archway that led into the
диета 10Indeed, it is very damp. In painting and gemmary, Fortunato,
диета 10like his countrymen,
диета 10was a quack-- but in the matter of old wines he was sincere. --a very good joke indeed--an excellent jest. Then I must positively leave you. I struggled with its weight; I placed it partially in its destined position. диета 10 " Here
диета 10I knocked off the neck of a bottle which I drew from a long row of its fellows that lay upon the mould. " Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore. " Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore. " Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken, "Doubtless," said I, "what it utters is its only stock
диета 10store, Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful Disaster Followed fast
диета 10and followed faster till his songs one burden диета 10 bore-- Till the dirges of his Hope that melancholy burden bore. I had completed the eighth, the ninth, and the tenth tier. "Then you are not of the brotherhood. For the most part their enthusiasm is adopted to suit the time and opportunity-- to practise imposture upon the British and Austrian millionaires. " "The Amontillado! It was in vain that Fortunato, uplifting his dull torch, endeavoured to pry into the depth of the recess. Besides, there is Luchesi--" "Enough," he said;
диета 10"the cough is a mere nothing; it will not kill me. " "Yes," I said, "let us be gone. I had scarcely laid the first tier of the masonry when I discovered that the
диета 10intoxication of Fortunato had in a great measure worn off. He raised it to his lips with a leer. I called again-- "Fortunato--" No answer still. From the fourth side the bones had been thrown down, and lay promiscuously upon the earth, forming at one point a mound of some size. "Nitre," I replied. "A sign,"
диета 10he said, "a sign. The cold is merely nothing. " said I, "thing of evil! --prophet still,
диета 10if bird or devil! " "Prophet!
диета 10" "To your vaults. It hangs like moss upon the vaults. Within the wall thus exposed by the displacing of the bones, we perceived a still interior recess, in depth about four feet in width three,
диета 10in height six or seven. How remarkably well you are looking to-day! "It is nothing," he said, at last. Luchesi--" "I have
диета 10no engagement;--come. We continued our route
диета 10in search of the Amontillado. "You jest," he exclaimed, recoiling a few paces. It must be understood that neither by word nor deed
диета 10had I given Fortunato cause to doubt my good will. Will not
диета 10they be awaiting us at the palazzo, the Lady Fortunato and the rest? " He again took my arm, and we proceeded. " And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting On the pallid bust of Pallas
диета 10just above my chamber door; And his
