The Revealing Of Evil And LACK OF Faithl: Nathaniel Hawthorne's Little Goodman Brown

Young Goodman Brown by Nathaniel Hawthorne is certainly a tale about revealing authentic evil and the lack of one man's faith.

Nathaniel Hawthorne left Young Goodman Dark brown up for most interpretations. After reading the story once or twice, a very important factor became clear if you ask me. What I absorbed from this storyline was that evil is present in everyone, will not matter how good we might think we are. Stuff aren't always what they seem. I claim this since the persons who attended the devil's meetings, were the kinds who attended church with him. The persons whom he though had been holy and Christian. These persons weren't holy at all. These were worshipping, praying, and obeying the devil.

As Goodman Brown started his journey in to the forest, he met a mature man. The old man, was about fifty years old, evidently in the same rank of life as Goodman Dark brown, and bearing a significant resemblance to him, though perhaps considerably more in expression than features (DiYanni, 273). In Brown's ignorance, he will not understand that the main one he's with is in fact the devil. That is demonstrated when Dark brown asks a query in fear before meeting the previous man, There might be a devilish Indian behind every tree, explained Goodman Dark brown to himself; and he glanced fearfully behind him, as

he added, Imagine if the devil himself ought to be within my very elbow! (DiYanni, 273).
