The Diary of Anne Frank

by Anne Frank

Writing

Symbolism, Imagery, Allegory

Anne’s dream is to become a writer. She writes fiction stories and hopes eventually to become a journalist. As her time in the Secret Annex wears on, and fear for her life increases, Anne expresses a desire to be made immortal through her writing. Thus her journal, which she hopes to use as the basis for a later published work, and her writing in general, become the symbol of the ability to live beyond one’s death.
