Magnificent story! Exquisite performance!
Satire. Indictment. Classic.
The revelation of his wife's allegiance.
The part where the fellow-traveler laughs at Young Goodman Brown's hollow protestations.
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.
