The story we are reading in class "Young Goodman Brown," has most of Nathaniel Hawthornes themes in it. It talks about Sin and how some things that happen in the story are sinful acts like giving into the devils temptations. It talks about the Past as well when the devil is talking to Goodman Brown and saying he knew his father and grandfather from past encounters. Another theme in it is Hypocrisy and Deception which would describe the devils temptations and promises to Goodman Brown, his father, his grandfather, and anyone else. The final theme in this story would be Isolation because of the location where Goodman Brown is at which is a dark forest where he is all alone with no one in the area. The theme of Science is not in this story.
