Publisher's Summary

Basil Rathbone reads Nathaniel Hawthorne's short story, set in Puritan New England, which addresses one of his common themes: the conflict between good and evil in human nature and, in particular, the problem of public goodness and private wickedness.

Most Helpful

By The Ineffable Pangolin on 09-13-12

Magnificent story! Exquisite performance!

If you could sum up Young Goodman Brown in three words, what would they be?

Satire. Indictment. Classic.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Young Goodman Brown?

The revelation of his wife's allegiance.

Which scene was your favorite?

The part where the fellow-traveler laughs at Young Goodman Brown's hollow protestations.

Any additional comments?

Basil Rathbone performs this story in a way no modern performer could possibly hope to match. I have never heard a comparable performance of any work and will be re-listening to this over and over again.
