The Diary of Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank

by Anne Frank

Lies, a school friend

Symbolism, Imagery, Allegory

Anne dreams about her school friend Lies and imagines that terrible things have happened to her. Lies becomes a symbol of guilt and gratefulness. Anne feels somehow that she should have managed to save Lies. The fact that something terrible has probably happened to people she loves reminds Anne how grateful she should be to the people who have protected her family.
