Faith (Young Goodman Brown) Faith is a character in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s 1835 short story, “Young Goodman Brown” which takes place in 17th century Puritan New England. Faith is highly symbolic, a character whose name was obviously carefully chosen by Hawthorne. As her name suggests, Faith is pure-hearted and angelic. She provides the moral compass of the story and represents the force of good in the world. Once her husband, the Young Goodman Brown, perceives that she has been corrupted, he rushes toward the devilish witches’ gathering exclaiming, “My Faith is gone.” Once he abandons “his faith,” he lives out his life as a suspicious, embittered and unhappy man.
