Does Young Goodman Brown Achieve Goodness?

- Does Young Goodman Brown Achieve Goodness?          Nathaniel Hawthorne often emphasizes the ambiguous nature of sin, that good and evil do not exist in parallel with each other but at many times intersect with each other in his fiction.

According to Hawthorne's view, Browns failure to recognize the inherent sinfulness in himself as well as the rest of humanity, results, not in a rewarding life of reveling in righteousness, but in isolation and obscurity....   [tags: Young Goodman Brown YGB]

- One of the most memorable lines from “A Good Man Is Hard To Find” comes from the Misfit when he says, “She would have been a good woman if it had been someone there to shoot her for every minute of her life (O’Connor 309).” Flannery O’Connor’s depiction of Christian faith can be seen in almost all of her works. Inevitably, the plots in all of O’Connor’s stories end with a shocking conclusion, and this leaves the reader with freedom to interpret the central idea. From the endless list of themes that O’Connor embeds into her stories, “A Good Man Is Hard To Find” is largely influenced by divine grace, hypocrisy, bitter reality, and white supremacy....   [tags: A Good Man Is Hard To Find Essays]

He does that after generally analyzing the crowd at first, and classifying them into different groups and then he gradually focuses his attention in one man only; one man that to his opinion stands out from the crowd a...   [tags: The Man of the Crowd Essays]
