The Diary of Anne Frank


by Anne Frank

Analysis: Booker's Seven Basic Plots Analysis

Christopher Booker is a scholar who wrote that every story falls into one of seven basic plot structures: Overcoming the Monster, Rags to Riches, the Quest, Voyage and Return, Comedy, Tragedy, and Rebirth. Shmoop explores which of these structures fits this story like Cinderella’s slipper.

Plot Type : None

Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl does not fit any of Booker’s Seven Basic Plots. It might be possible to stretch the plot into the Tragedy structure; however, considering that this diary regards real life events which were in no way planned, there is no "plot" as such.
