Analysis of Young Goodman Brown
Cloyse is symbolic of the weakening of his resolve to stand firm against the devil(241). The devil is Brown, father, and grandfather all rolled into one, the exact counterpart of Faith, Brown s heavenly side. The text states that Brown thought of Faith as a blessed angel on earth and said, After this night I ll cling to her skirts and follow her to heaven. Donnley writes, Faith should be understood to represent the human power to resist animal compulsion. The closing scenes of the story show Brown to be a creature trapped in a deterministic web. In its strictest form determinism denies free will or volition. The purpose of Browns journey into the wilderness is to confront and master his own nature, represented by the evil stranger. Brown discovered that the entire community including his wife, whom is portrayed as being pure, indulges in sin and therefore Brown s life turns dark due to his loss of hope. The stranger tells Brown that he is late and Brown says, Faith kept me back a while(332). As Keppler and Lawrence point out sin always manifests itself as compulsion, as assertion of animal instinct(33).
And this sameness of sounds suggests a broader identity of brown and all of nature. In Young Goodman Brown Hawthorne shows that Goodman Brown transformed from someone who believes that he can free himself from a deterministic nature into someone who believes that he and everyone else are controlled by natural compulsion. When Brown met up with the devil he explained that he was late because Faith held him back awhile. In the second part of the story, Browns faith in his ability to resist bodily compulsion is progressively undermined and finally destroyed. Nathaniel Hawthorne s short story of Young Goodman Brown is a reflection of the Puritan faith as well as man s conflict between good and evil.
