Abstract

While Young Goodman Brown maintains his faith, he faces a life of insular misery after his experience, estranged from family and community. The protagonist of “Circumstance” emerges from the woods with little concern for her spiritual salvation, embracing her family who has survived the fate of their small settlement that has been destroyed by Indians. The difference in the tenor of the ending is reflective of the different intentions of the stories and the difference between the male and female visions of the dark night and its consequences.
