Magnificent story! Exquisite performance!

If you could sum up Young Goodman Brown in three words, what would they be?

Satire. Indictment. Classic.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Young Goodman Brown?

The revelation of his wife's allegiance.

Which scene was your favorite?

The part where the fellow-traveler laughs at Young Goodman Brown's hollow protestations.

Any additional comments?

Basil Rathbone performs this story in a way no modern performer could possibly hope to match. I have never heard a comparable performance of any work and will be re-listening to this over and over again.
