Young Goodman Brown and Heart of Darkness

The plot in the novella Young Goodman Brown written by Nathaniel Hawthorne takes place in the Puritan Salem in the late 17th century. Young man goes at dusk in the forest and after spending the night there, he returns to his wife as an internally changed man. What happened to him in the woods? As always, Hawthorne has several answers.

The title of the story Young Goodman Brown is a typical family name, which indicates that this story is about the average person. Anybody can take a place of the main character.

In the story Heart of Darkness, the main narrator is Charlie Marlow, who tells about his journey into the heart of equatorial Africa, to the trading station of the European company to pick up the accumulated goods there – ivory – and take back from there a sick agent of the company, Mr. Kurtz. The story can be read as the story of Marlow adventures in the heart of Africa, but it is distinguished by the complexity of such an organization that the narrative is perceived as a philosophical novel that makes room for opposite and mutually exclusive readings.

In both stories, the main character is represented with a wicked version of himself, while setting on a journey. Throughout both stories, the two main characters show that in every man evil coexists with good. In the beginning of Young Goodman Brown, Brown meets a traveller on his way, who looks a lot like him. The author himself states about the resemblances between them. Brown tells the traveller that he intends to go back to his wife and doesn’t want to take the other path. He looks confident with his decision, but we see that he is tempted by a traveller and keeps on walking with him. The reader doesn’t know what path Brown is talking about until later when we find out that this is the devil’s path. When Brown sees how all the good people from his town are coming to join the meeting in the woods, he is stunned, because he sees that they are all have evil inside them as well. With this realization he sees that he too can be lured by his evil side.

In Heart of the Darkness, the main character is given a different depiction of the evil and good. Marlow looking for Kurtz through the whole story; he feels an odd connection towards him. The fact that Marlow might be unable to see Kurtz is of great disappointment to him. After finally finding Kurtz, Marlow talks to him and sees all the evil that resides in him.
