    What contribution does the chosen character (Hibbert) make to Journey's End?

    3 star(s)

    The men can - why can't an officer?" Hibbert's personality is mainly fear which sets the scenes, as the worst thing you can get at war is fear. This must be why R.C. Sheriff the play wright used Hibbert as a coward to show people the consequances of world war one soldiers have to cope with. The play wright describes Hibbert as a coward who is isulated because of the fear which has almost taken over his life. There is a part in the script where Hibbert is pleading to Stanhope for him not to go up to the trenches, Hibbert said " I can't bear to go up in those awful trenches again -."

  • Journey's End - Compare and contrast Osborne, Stanhope and Raleigh as people and as soldiers.

    "After considering all three characters I feel that Osborne's calmness and wisdom strongly compliments Raleigh's enthusiasm and energy. Stanhope appears to balance the situation with his bold character. He organises Osborne, Raleigh and the other officers to the best of his ability but as a result he needs Osborne to support him through difficult circumstances. Raleigh respects and looks up to Stanhope and Osborne and learns how to deal with war through them. I found that the three characters work well together in the play and they keep the audience interested and involved at all times. Zara Lightowler 3 4"

  • To what extent do you believe that R.C Sherriff successfully presents the experience of the life in the trenches and of how class attitudes persisted through it?

    "In conclusion it is my belief that R.C. Sheriff did a good job in portraying the horrors of the war which he and I his comrades suffered. He also showed the class attitudes throughout the play. He did this in many ways including the way in which he used the character Hibbert to show the way effect of the war on humans. All of them being extremely effective. Joshua brown 4c"

  • Explore Raleigh and Stanhopes relationship and compare their characters

    "In conclusion, Stanhope’s character clashed with Raleigh’s character causing conflicts in their relationship. Their conflicts were all mostly started by Stanhope as he was worried that Raleigh would tell everyone at home of his state since he was a drunk and changed a lot from when Raleigh had last seen him. A softer side of their is only seen at the end of the book but it does suggest that they had that side to their relationship regardless of their characters clashing with Stanhope’s paranoia and Raleigh endless hero-worshipping g of Stanhope.
