message 1: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Nathaniel Hawthorne's Young Goodman Brown (33) is a single story from the collection Twice-Told Tales (17). I think the former should be removed.


message 2: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Correction: Young Goodman Brown is from Mosses From an Old Manse (1846), which is on the 1840s list.


message 3: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Faust: First Part was published in 1808 and is #1 on the 1800s decade list. Faust Part Two was published in 1832. I have deleted the former and added the latter.
