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's always looked up to as moral luminaries are actually really evil.

Review

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 town a Satan worshiper? 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.
