Basil Rathbone reads Nathaniel Hawthorne's short story, set in Puritan New England, which addresses one of his common themes: the conflict between good and evil in human nature and, in particular, the problem of public goodness and private wickedness.

Satire. Indictment. Classic.
The revelation of his wife's allegiance.
The part where the fellow-traveler laughs at Young Goodman Brown's hollow protestations.
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.
