The Diary of Anne Frank
Anne Frank's vivid account of her life while hiding from the Nazis has moved generations of readers. This invaluable new study guide contains a new selection of the finest contemporary criticism on The Diary of Anne Frank, plus an introductory essay from master scholar Harold Bloom, a chronology of the author's life, a bibliography, and an index for easy reference.
The Diary's legacy of hope... should not a sought in hard won moments of optimism. Rather it is found in the desire to fight despair through its painful representation in art. In this sense, the Diary allows us to experience a "new form" of a life narrative... By its very existence, this narrative is new as it redefines the heroism of resistance.ùRachel Feldhay Brenner
The text that Anne Frank envisaged was to be both a personal statement and a record of the circumstances of her life. It was "to be useful or give pleasure"... This raises the thorny issue of whether the literature of atrocity can teach children about that which it describes.ùNigel A. Caplan
