Abstract

By comparing The Witch (2016) to The Shining (Stanley Kubrick, 1980), I argue that Robert Eggers' new film contests Perry Miller's sympathetic reading of the Puritans offered as the formation of American Studies, returning us to the 19th century critique offered by Nathaniel Hawthorne, particularly in his short story, "Young Goodman Brown" (1835).
