In the Clouds
Anne Frank Tackk
Anne is trying to explain to Peter what makes her happy in life. Anne says, "Look, Peter, the sky. What a lovely, lovely day! Aren’t the clouds beautiful?” (Goodrich 951).
The clouds represent Anne and her willing to dream. Anne finds happiness in nature. She has a desire to dream. Anne dreams to make herself in a better place when she is bored of staying inside. Anne says to Peter, “when it seems as if I couldn’t stand being cooped up for one more minute … I think myself out” (Goodrich 951).
Anne also tries to convince Peter to believe in a religion to help him have something to look forward to and to try to make him more happy. Anne not only finds comfort in nature, but thinking about others and God. Anne says, "When I think of all that's out there... the trees... the flowers... the seagulls... when I think of the dearness of you, Peter... and the goodness of people we know... Mr. Kraler, Miep, Dirk, the vegetable man, all risking their lives for us every day... when I think of these good things, I'm not afraid anymore... I find myself, God, and I..." (Goodrich 952).
