Hey Malo, I heard you need some help with writing a PEE paragraph. Here are my top tips to writing the perfect PEE paragraph.
1. Point
2. Evidence
3. Explain
4. Structure/Language
5. Alternatvely
6. Context
7. Writer's intentions
8. Readers effect
9. Proof read.

So your task is to write me a PEE paragraph on Act 1 and how characters are presented.

In the opening act is based in St.Quentin on Monday, March 1918. The conversation between Hardy and Osborne shows a sense of livelihood during the 'heat' of the war. Osborne throughout the play is seen as the 'Uncle' trying his best to enlighten the companies' spirit seen with the conversation about the sock.
Hardy mentions Stanhope's drinking issues and in a sense lacks respect towards him and can't sympathesise with him. On the other hand Osborne explains that after all his been through he could at least be able to understand and states Stanhope is good at his job " There isn't a man to touch him as a commander of men"
Raleigh is introduced into the C Company, who was a school friend of Stanhope. Upon entering the dug out he is introduced to Osborne in which he informs Osborne of his past and how he tried to persuade him to get into the same regiment as Stanhope however his uncle shouts stating Raleigh should " be treated like everyone else "
Mason is briefly introduced in which the audience discovers he is the officer's chief.
Stanhope doesn't seem impressed by the arrival of Raleigh greeting him with a rather cold " How did you-get here? And is slightly suspicious claiming it's "Rather a coincidence"
But because Raleigh's sister Madge is his fiancee he censors his letters ensuring he doesn't inform her and his friends what he has become despite Osborne trying to explain Raleigh worships him as a hero

Remember you're not telling the reader what happens, you're trying to communicate how the scene adds to characterization and what Sherriff wanted to get across from it.
