Hawthorne's "Young Goodman Brown" And O'Connor's "A Good Man Is Hard To Find" - Evil

Uploaded by : Essays-Now.com

4 pages in length. Evil - a self-perpetuating entity of myriad literary tales - presents itself as a force that challenges the very foundation of human existence in two classic stories: O'Connor's A Good Man is Hard to Find and Hawthorne's Young Goodman Brown. The paradox that exists within the literary boundaries of each tale illustrates no matter how hard one might toil to evade the influence of such a tremendously manipulative power, sometimes it is a futile attempt.
