The Minister’s Black Veil
“The Minister’s Black Veil” is an 1836 short story by Nathaniel Hawthorne. This story is set in a colonial New England town and tells the story of the Reverend Mr. Hooper. One day Mr. Hooper arrives to conduct the Sunday church service wearing a black veil. The congregation is unnerved by his appearance and becomes more so as he preaches a sermon about secret sins. Hooper continues to wear the veil, even in death, despite the townspeople’s increasing discomfort with this practice.
