The Pit and The Pendulum by Edgar Allan Poe

***** However, the water is drugged, so he again falls asleep and wakes up to find himself in a slightly different situation. He is securely bound on his back by a long strap that has been wound around his body and attaches him to a wooden framework so that he can only move his head and, to a lesser extent, his left arm.

What is the event and the setting in the above?
