Young Goodman Blog


I read "Young Goodman Brown" today, and it should go in our imaginary anthology, but the trouble is, it's already in so many REAL anthologies. Also, Hawthorne is really Theresa's territory. I remember a great paper she wrote, somehow entwining "Young Goodman Brown" with the Dean Martin movie KISS ME, STUPID. Speaking of which, those sad words "the 'blog' will be 'down' for a few days" are not far off... next week Theresa will be speaking about Hawthorne at the Literature/Film Association Annual Conference up in the Baltimore area, so that means more times of "blogless" reflection for all of us. Which brings us to today's "blogging" tip: Life is not always about "blogs"!
