in consequence of the missive, Different interpretations, penned by Robbin
Anne suffers with her own sadness but I don't think she makes it apparent to anyone else. On the long walk she is alone with her thoughts for the most part, but I don't think there is any indication that in company , at dinner, etc. that she is retiring from all conversation. My image of her is of one participating graciously in dialogues but not attempting to take or share the limelight from or with CW. She obligingly sympathizzes with Mrs. Musgrove over Dick, plays the piano for dancing, and observes everything.
Anne has reached a point in her life where her pleasures are in poetry & knowlege & in being useful to others--which provides a striking contrast with nearly everyone else. Most of the rest of the characters have dedicated their lives to enjoying themselves as much as possible & leading lives of utter uselessness. Anne finds joy in caring for others & cheering them. The persona she is projecting may be far from mousy--she may be looking mysterious & independent.
