Scene 1, #1
Earlier in the play Anne’s outbursts and arguments focused on trivial matters. In this scene Anne changes from how she was during the first act. In the first act she was a very immature kid but now we start to see her change to be strong and independent. We can see this change in the text from act 1 “ [As she is removing a pair of panties] A cat? ” This as you can see is very immature and rude of Anne to do in front of men like Mr. Van Daan. But in act 2 scene 1 she shows a different side. the text states “ We’re young, Margot, Peter, and I! You grownups have had your chance! But look at us . . . If we begin thinking of all the horror in the world, we’re lost! We’re trying to hold on to some kind of ideals . . . when everything . . . Ideals, hopes . . . everything, are being destroyed ! It isn't our fault the world is in such a mess! we weren't around when all this started! So dont try to take this out on us! “ This shows Anne’s strong independent side.
