    2. During the period in which the story is set, "Goodman" was a title that was used, just as one might use "Mr." today. However, what additional reason do you think Hawthorne might have had for calling Brown "Goodman?" In your opinion, is the name appropriate/accurate? Explain your answer.

    5. What does the man in the forest reveal to Brown about his family, and why does Brown find this so disturbing?
    6. How does Brown react when he sees Goody Cloyse coming down the path? Why does he react in this way?

    8. Which character in the story would you identify as the protagonist, and why?

    10. What characteristics of this story could be used to identify it as an allegory?
    11. How is Goodman Brown different after his experience in the forest (or, alternatively, in a dream)?
    12. What, specifically, seems to be the cause of the change in Goodman Brown? Support your answer with at least one quote from the text.
    13. Have any other characters in the story changed by the end of the story? Explain your answer and support it with at least one direct quote.

    15. Explain the significance of Brown’s wife’s name in the story.
    16. The characters in "Brown" are identified as Puritan Christians, which means they would have been Calvinist in theology. One of the main doctrines of Calvinism is "total depravity," which is the belief that because of the Fall, humankind is so depraved (human hearts are so totally evil) that humans do not even have the ability (or free will) to ask Christ to come into their lives. Therefore, Calvinists believe that God must elect or select individuals in order for them to be saved. This concept is called “total depravity.” Based on your reading of the story, would you say that Hawthorne agrees or disagrees with this doctrine? Explain your answer with specific reference to the story.
    17. What statement do you believe Hawthorne is making about the relationship between man and God, or about the nature of religious faith? Is Hawthorne rejecting religious faith altogether, or is he critiquing a specific view (What was wrong with Brown’s religious faith that caused him to lose it)?
    18. Write a thesis statement for this story using the following format: In the short story “Young Goodman Brown,” Nathaniel Hawthorne uses (specific literary device #1) and (specific literary device #2) to suggest that (universal theme).
    19. Analyze the message of the story from a biblical viewpoint. Use the following website to locate a scripture that supports your answer: www.biblegateway.com . Paste the quotation into your post and follow it with a few sentences that clearly explain how it supports your answer.
