Bronte also writes the book in first person, which can make the reader almost visualise Jane as a close companion sitting next to them telling them her life story. The reader would not doubt anything Jane says for she is never melodramatic, which gives the impression of truth, honesty and portraying Miss Eyre's character as moralistic. The book is semi-autobiographical with Bronte's own experiences as a child. "Lowood" brings in strong references to the boarding school of Miss Wooler, in Roe Head, where Bronte later became a teacher and later on a governess. Charlotte also uses carefully planned language, for example the name "Jane Eyre".
The Metamorphosis of Anne in The Diary of Anne Frank A young girl, Anneliese Marie Frank, receives an empty jar of a diary for her thirteenth birthday, amidst much political strife in her new home country of Netherlands. As a German-born Jew in hiding, Anne will eventually fill her diary with over 2 years of experiences of the Secret Annex. Initially, she makes use of her newfound outlet to exhibit her growing interest to become a writer. The diary, for Anne, acts as her personal confidante before her family goes into hiding, and becomes even more valued to her during their ordeal. Eventually, in 1944, Anne will hear of an opportunity for her work to be published after the war, and sets out to revise her entries.
Translated into over 67 languages with over 30 million copies sold, The Diary of a Young Girl, is one of the most well-known books of all time. Written by a young girl who suffered through the harsh circumstances of the holocaust, Anne Frank. She wasn't a survivor physically but is a survivor spiritually and mentally. But why do we read it? We read Anne Frank to show and to give an example of how life was in hiding for many Jews during the Holocaust, to get a first person witness to personalize the holocaust in a different perspective than history books.
A young girl forced to spend her teenage years in hiding due to the barbarity of the Holocaust has more in common with a current American teenage than some people know. Yes, the circumstances in today’s world do not merely relate to the horrid times of the Holocaust but, the adolescents in both time periods still express the difficulties of finding themselves, as well as, building themselves to the person they want to become. Obviously, Anne Frank is a different person because of what she went through during Hitler’s dictatorship. People worldwide are still reading the remarkable Anne Frank The Diary of a Young Girl, because her own innocent words are written revealing how ordinary she truly was. Anne is comfortably capable of partaking in an eighth grade school classroom.
At the beginning of her diary, she is a young teenage girl just like any other during that period of time. Throughout her diary entri... ... middle of paper ... ...truggle to define herself within this climate of oppression. Anne’s diary ends without comment on August 1, 1944, the end of a seemingly normal day that leaves us with the expectation of seeing another entry on the next page. However, the Frank family is betrayed to the Nazis and arrested on August 4, 1944. Anne’s diary, the observations of an imaginative, friendly, sometimes petty, and rather normal teenage girl, comes to an abrupt and silent end.
Like any normal young girl growing up she talks about her sexuality. Only in Anne’s case, she does not have any close friends to share these experiences or feelings with as she is in hiding. So she writes in her diary about what she is learning about herself. As she grows up and starts to compare herself to her mother and to other women such as her sister, this becomes obvious when she falls for the boy named peter in the secret annex and says “I know I’m starting at a very young age. Not even fifteen and already so independent- that’s a little hard for other people to understand.
Mothers in Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility "I can no more forget it, than a mother can forget her suckling child". Jane Austen wrote these words about her novel, Sense and Sensibility, in a letter to her sister Cassandra in 1811. Such a maternal feeling in Austen is interesting to note, particularly because any reader of hers is well aware of a lack of mothers in her novels. Frequently we encounter heroines and other major characters whom, if not motherless, have mothers who are deficient in maturity, showing affection, and/or common sense. Specifically, I would like to look at Sense and Sensibility, which, according to Ros Ballaster's introduction to the novel, "is full of, indeed over-crowded with, mothers" (vii).
Hitler’s main target was the Jews, claiming that they were “racially inferior.” He developed an idea of a Master Aryan Race, the need to rid Germany of “inferior people”, such as Jews and Gypsies, and the need to expand Germany’s borders. In doing this, he caused many Jews to abandoned their homes and go into total isolation. The Frank family was one of many who endured Hitler's wrath. The Diary of Anne Frank is about a little girl who tells her story of struggle and courage through her diary. On Anne’s thirteenth birthday she received various presents, but the present that she cherished the most was her diary that she named “Kitty”.
The novel “The Diary of a Young Girl”, is famously known worldwide for its provocative and absolutely uncensored story about a girl who depicted her daily struggles and frustrations at hiding during the infamous event of World War II. One of the main reasons for the entire novel gaining acclaim is due to its setting taking place in such a historical time. It wouldn’t be as well known if it was set in today’s generation. So how would the “The Diary of a Young Girl”, be different if it was written in a completely different setting, time or even audience? Children and women are often considered very innocent and fragile, kind of like a feeling like they need to be protected.
