From the '05 paper

Explore the ways in which Sherriff makes this such a dramatic opening and introduces some of the main issues of the play

Does the way Sherriff presents Stanhope encourage you to feel differently about him at different points in the play?

You are Osborne, just before you leave the dug-out to lead the raid with Raleigh (in Act 3, Scene 1)

To find that, go onto the OCR website and look under the Mark Scheme of 2006, make sure it is the English Literature one, and then just find the correct marks, Its something like Generic Band Descriptions and it is a pdf document. Do you know any more past questions?

A dramatic part is the character description of Stanhope. We hear both Hardy's and Osborne's views on him (How he is a heavy drinker and nervous..) and then we see Stanhope's rather abrupt entrance. "Has Hardy gone yet!?" "Good job he had! I had a few words to say to that Master Hardy.." etc.. This all shows how Stanhope is very tense and gets angry quickly over the state of the trenches.

Another dramatic moment is the entrance of Raleigh : "He looks a little bewildered" this is linked to the theme of schoolboy and master, demonstrated later on by Osborne and Raleigh. Also, the fact that Stanhope is a little disappointed to see Raliegh: "Oh, what a coincidence" adds to the dramatic tension and increases the audiences sympathy for Raleigh.

There are a few points. Dont take those quotes as accurate, they are off the top of my head. Have you got any more questions?

Here is a list of good quotes found in the play.

"Because he's stuck it till his nerves have got battered to bits, he's called a drunkard" This quote shows how much Osborne cares about Stanhope and also how much he respects him.

"You'll find the other officers call me uncle" Shows how kind and dependable Osborne can be.

"Drinking like a fish as usual?" (says Hardy). This quote just backs up the fact that Stanhope is an alcoholic.

"You know you mustn't expect to find him quite the same" Osborne kindly warns Raleigh so he doesn't get a shock when he meets Stanhope.

"How frightfully quiet it is" Raleigh says - this shows how strange the atmosphere must have been in the front line.

"Another little worm trying to wriggle home" Says Stanhope talking about Hibbert whom he disrespects because he is trying to go home.

"Yes, I'm a hero" sarcastically says Stanhope as he doesn't consider himself to be the hero Raleigh believes him to be.

"Without being doped with whisky - I'd go mad with fright" Stanhope knows he has a drinking problem.

"He'll write and tell her I reek of whisky all day" Stanhope is worried that Raleigh will write home and tell his sister about him. This gives him the idea to censor Raleigh's letters.

"Dear old Uncle, tuck me up" Says Stanhope to Osborne - their relationship is almost father to son at times.

"You keen on gardening" Trying to talk about something else rather than war is common throughout the play.

"You don't think i'm going potty?" Asks Stanhope to Osborne which again shows how much Stanhope trusts Osborne.

"D'you understand an order? Give me that letter!" Stanhope demands the letter from Raleigh as he thinks there is something about him in it.

"I'm fiddling with my revolver...going off by accident" Stanhope threatens to shoot Hibbert if he deserts.

"How awfully nice - if the brigadier's pleased" sarcastically after Osborne's death Stanhope shows little respect for those above him.

"Steady, old boy. Just lie there quietly for a bit" The caring side of Stanhope when Raleigh has been seriously injured.
