Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “Young Goodman Brown” narrates through a third person omniscient narration. Throughout the text, Hawthorne discusses the featured character, Young Goodman Brown's internal psychological struggles. This tale takes place during the 17th century in a community of Christians in the Salem Village.

His skepticism lives on for the rest of his existence. This symbolically represents that all of humankind has some evilness in their lives no matter how good a person character could be portrayed to believe. Young Goodman Brown's realization represents that evilness and Bartleb...
