'''''Young Goodman Brown''''' is a short story written by [[Nathaniel Hawthorne]] and published in 1835. The story is about a sissy Puritan who has a very black and white moral outlook on life, and while entertaining the idea of maybe doing just a little bit of evil for fun, finds out that all the people he's always looked up to as moral luminaries are actually really evil.

Kinda dumb. I like how the Puritan is a crybaby, and how it turns out that pretty much everybody is a little evil after all, but the ending is a bit crazy. Why is everyone in the entire town a Satan worshiper? And what's with the disappearing act? Did Brown just have a nervous breakdown? I guess the moral is, don't be too much of a goody-goody or you'll waste your whole life suspicious of others, but it's kind of a dark way to end, and not a good kind of dark. Over all, I'd have to say that Kate Beaton's comic is way better.

The story is kind of dumb. I like how the Puritan is a crybaby, and how it turns out that pretty much everybody is a little evil after all, but the ending is a bit crazy. Why is everyone in the entire town a Satan worshiper? And what's with the disappearing act? Did Brown just have a nervous breakdown? I guess the moral is, don't be too much of a goody-goody or you'll waste your whole life being suspicious of others, but it's kind of a dark way to end, and not a good kind of dark. Over all, I'd have to say that Kate Beaton's comic is way better.
