    I really liked this deep story of returning to the past He discovered an equivocal truth in saying that going back into the past to change terrible future events cannot be made because they are inevitable In this way, it superbly permeates throughout the story that reflection on the past too long is also useless because the past can never change I love the use of allegory Hawthorne s use of objects standing in the way of Hope, Shame, Faith, and Vice These reveal some eternal passions that I really liked this deep story of returning to the past He discovered an equivocal truth in saying that going back into the past to change terrible future events cannot be made because they are inevitable In this way, it superbly permeates throughout the story that reflection on the past too long is also useless because the past can never change I love the use of allegory Hawthorne s use of objects standing in the way of Hope, Shame, Faith, and Vice These reveal some eternal pas...

    A pretty good, and very well written, short story for the time period like so many short stories from the time period there s about the same amount of time spent on the set up than on the actual plot I got this from a sci fi selection, but it s definitelyfantasy than sci fi.
