Name of Poe's work that contained 'Something wicked, this way comes' : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

Hello- I am trying to find the name of Poe's work that included the line, "Something wicked, this way comes". Could anyone help a 'tormented' artist???

This isn't Poe but rather Shakespeare. Its in the play Macbeth, Act IV, scene 1...

"By the pricking of my thumbs,

Something wicked this way comes.

Open, locks,

Whoever knocks!"

Also a story by Ray Bradbury using the Shakespeare reference. This keeps popping up. I am not sure Poe ever quoted Shakespeare in this case.
