When does Hawthorne reveals his feelings about his Puritan ancestors in "Young Goodman Brown,"?


Hawthorne feelings are very negative and quite resentful. The witch hunts often involved accusations based on revenge, jealousy, botched child delivery, and other reasons that had little to do with perceived witchcraft. The Puritan intolerance of Quakers occurred during the second half of the seventeenth century. Puritans and Quakers both settled in America, hoping to find religious freedom and start their own colonies where they could believe what they wanted to.
