Young Goodman Brown is a short story by Nathaniel Hawthorne that deals with a late-night meeting between a man and the devil. It serves as Brown’s journey into the depths of the forest, where he believes that he sees many of the members of his community, including his wife, Faith, attending a satanic ceremony.

In this story, the use of symbols is…
