A walk in the Park
Anne Frank Tackk, Amaya Graham, Period 6
In act 2, scene 4 Anne feels hopeful and happy, even though she is in a crowded living area. Anne tells Peter “ I used to take it all for granted… and now I’ve gone crazy about everything to do with nature” (Goodrich 951). She looks through the skylight to see the clouds and to think herself out of her situation. While she is telling Peter about thinking herself out, she says, “I think myself on a walk in the park where I used to go with Pim” (Goodrich 951). She tries to find a way to be happy while living in the Secret Annex by thinking that she is in a different, happier place. Anne wants Peter to have a way to relief himself from fear of the Nazis, so that he can be happy as well.
