The famous story of a mysterious nighttime journey where Young Goodman Brown contends with Elderly Witches, Devil Worshippers, a Black Mass and a showdown with the Devil himself. Like so many of Nathaniel Hawthorne's short stories and novels, 'Young Goodman Brown' takes place in Puritan New England, specifically in Salem, Massachusetts, during the infamous Witch Trials, during which dozens of women and men were accused of witchcraft, and executed in grisly fashion. Part parable, part horror fiction, the story of Goodman Brown is one of gaining knowledge of good and evil, of learning that good and evil are not always visible simply by their appearance and so can lurk anywhere. Stephen King has referred to the story as ”one of the ten best stories written by an American”. Oscar nominated and Emmy Award Winning Special Effects Artist Edward E. French narrates this early American tale of the supernatural.
