Publisher's Description

Throughout his richly varied literary career, Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864) wrote compelling short stories whose appeal has proven evergreen. Indeed his first important publication, long before the arrival of The Scarlet Letter, was an 1837 collection of stories, Twice-Told Tales, which brought the New England writer immediate fame and high praise from no less a storyteller than Edgar Allan Poe. Another collection, Mosses from an Old Manse, followed in 1846 and brought Hawthorne further success. The present volume contains six stories reprinted from those two collections, as well as another superb selection, "My Kinsman, Major Molineux." In addition to the latter tale and the title story, this edition includes "Dr. Heidegger's Experiment," "The Birthmark," "Rappaccini's Daughter," "Roger Malvin's Burial" and "The Artist of the Beautiful." Here are tales rich in atmosphere and suspense, with plots centering on subjects as diverse as witchcraft, revenge, the power of guilt, and a passion for the beautiful — all in the distinctive voice of one of America's most admired writers.

    Young Goodman Brown is an allegorical short story that centers on the human struggle of identity and religion. It is written by Nathaniel Hawthorne and was first published in 1835. The story takes place in Salem, a Puritan settlement where Christian moral law is seemingly strictly adhered to. In the story, Brown embarks on a journey at night where he meets the devil and follows many upstanding townspeople to a meeting deep in the forest. Everyone there is involved in a sort of satanic baptism, including his wife Faith. Brown finds that he along with his wife will be the subjects baptized. Brown then awakens alone in the woods, not sure if what occurred was just a dream or an actual event. Whichever the case may be, he lives the remainder of his life an unhappy man who is suspicious of everyone he once respected. Here faith is tested and through this internal human struggle one can find happiness, joy, and enlightenment or discouragement, suspicion, and guilt. It is truly the choice of the individual and how they will come to terms with these tests in their life. There are many angles that can be addressed in this tale, making it so universal and interesting to people of all stations. Hawthorne's writing is known for instilling lessons or morals and will be remembered for generations to come. Definitely a good read and great tale to review and analyze, it has many points of symbolism and an overall interesting plot.
