Puritan Goodman Brown goes off in the evening and leaves his pretty young wife at home. On the way, in the woods, Brown meets up with a man that looks like himself. They could be father and son. The older man caries a cane that looks like a serpent (Moses and the Egyptian magician’s and their canes that turn into serpents). Goodman resists the devil and is left alone in the woods. The reader watches Goodman as he experiences sounds and visions in the night of devil worship and in the morning he no longer trusts anyone. Well written short story of horror. Hawthorne examines the Puritan beliefs in the depravity of man and election. He uses names such as (Good)man Brown and Faith, Goody Cloyse. Read this because it is on NPR 100 Best Horror list. ( )

This story ended too quickly as most short stories do. Hawthorne transports his readers to Puritan times where the belief in witchcraft and devil-worshiping are real. He brings to life the feelings of not knowing who to trust, trying to determine who is a witch or who isn't, and what to do with the information of learning someone is a witch. For such a short story, Hawthorne fills the pages with images that makes the forests tangible and illicit a sympathetic response for Goodman Brown. For an assigned reading for a literature course, this was an enjoyable story worth reading. ( )

For the first half of this, I felt it was a rather plodding allegory: a young man bids adieu to his wife Faith and goes to meet The Devil in the woods. However, the conclusion really twists it around and makes this an excellent piece. ( )

Young Goodman Brown appeals to me on two levels. I both enjoy the story and the writing. Making a deal with the devil is a timeless story that crops up in many forms: story, opera, ballet, poem, and song. I enjoyed the fact that Hawthorne never came out and had the evil character say who he was, but it was still very obvious. I also thought Hawthorne was exceedingly clever in keeping Faith’s reaction to resist the devil a mystery. Would the story have been as intriguing if we had known Faith’s choice?
While Hawthorne’s story is filled with drama and tension, I find his style of writing exquisitely beautiful, yet not overdone. His treatment of the trees and the forest is varied and detailed. The serpentine cane is creepy and lifelike. But, I think Hawthorne’s writing shines in his description of the sounds that Brown hears (and makes) in the woods. Rising and falling, moaning and shrieking, the sounds that precede and follow Brown are memorable!
The story and writing style compliment each other in that Hawthorne does not present part of the story and then precede to lose my attention with gobs of description....and then story.....and then description.....yawn! I love the way he aptly describes as the story zips along. Neither the story nor the description seem to get in the way of each other. ( )
