CHOICE DECISION AND EXPERIENCE After reading various short stories poems and plays I have chosen to discuss how ones choices decisions and experiences play a vital role in which all these affect ones life The three genres I have chosen Young Goodman Brown by Nathaniel Hawthorne The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost and Oedipus Rex by Sophocles allows the reader to observe ones outcome in life due to various circumstances In Nathaniel Hawthornes Young Goodman Brown Goodman Brown makes a choice of joining evil through much decision and in turn his experiences makes his life lonely and miserable As Goodman Brown leaves his wife Faith to go to the forest to take a dangerous and unknown path he thinks to himself Well shes a blessed angel on earth and after this one night Ill cling to her skirts and follow her to heaven 81 Goodman Brown believes he can depend on his wifes faith to save him so it wont matter if he leaves his own faith at home because it will be waiting for him when he returns Even though Goodman Brown senses a feeling of uncertainty he still continues with his evil journey His decision is justified by the promise that he makes to himself that all will be well when he returns By making this choice Goodman Brown decides to meet with the devil in the forest and he has to choose whether to go back to his faith or explore the evils that the devil has to offer Goodman Brown meets with the devil along a crooked path and the devil asks why he was late Goodman Brown replied Faith kept me back awhile 81 The faith Goodman Brown had left behind was not only his wife but also his literal faith within himself Once again a choice has to be made as to whether or not to continue with the journey
