Anne describes herself as a 'little bundle of contradictions'. Why? Explain in your own words.
Anne reflects that her personality was a ‘little bundle of contradictions’. She had a dual personality, but she never showed the nicer, softer, gentler side of her to people, they only saw the fun-loving, flirtatious, easy-going Anne. Whenever she tried to show her more quiet and serious side, everyone thought that she was either in a bad mood or sick and pumped her full of medicine. She always expressed her conviction that there were ‘two Annes.’ The jovial and lively Anne either amused or exasperated the people, whereas the sentimental and private Anne was known only to herself. As she grew up, she understood her actions and motivations better over the course of her writing and felt aggravated by the split in her personality. She referred more and more to her outward and inward character.
