What is symbolic about Goodman Brown’s desire to leave his wife and go into the woods? What symbols throughout the story help to reveal Goodman Brown’s conflicts? What is symbolic of the story’s two different settings? Does each setting represent something about the human condition? What is Hawthorne trying to say about faithful or religious people? Use elements of fiction (characters, setting, plot, language, symbolism, etc.) to elaborate. Do not look up anything online! I want your analysis from reading the work.
