Your sleepy, scared, poisoned, or otherwise indisposed party is going to suffer through potentially SIX waves of behead-capable arrows. In the end Manderley is its own character. One 2208 Goodman Brown takes a "dreary road, darkened by all the gloomiest trees of the forest�" but this also ties into Poe�s use of Gothic in that the road taken corresponds to his actions. I’ve had a quick flick through the first couple of chapters – the heroine, Nona, has a golden ticket for a royal wedding and she has travelled to England on a once in a lifetime trip from her hometown in Ireland.
