the slowest clock : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

Did Poe use the expression 'the slowest clock' in his literature. If so what work contained this term. Many thanks.

What does the expression mean? And in what context? There is a clock in "The Masque of the Red Death" and time is important in many other stories.

Thanks for the response. I heard the term in a reading of Poe's work years ago. I have always associated the term with 'Tell Tale Heart' but have been unable to find it in any of the published editions. Of course it is now driving me nuts !!!
