Journey's End Character Study
The character is have chosen to study is Osborne as he seems like a very interesting character even though he isn't there at the end of the play.
The first time we see Osborne is actually when he is described at the start of the play. He is described as "a tall, thin man " with " a fine head, with close-cropped, iron grey hair. He looks about forty-five - physically as hard as nails."
This is a description of how I see as a typical solider, actually more like an officer or sergeant but somebody I would imagine in a war.
He talks as though he is well-educated and from a public school "Certainly" and public school trains people to have a definite sense of duty and determination, and this was demonstrated perfectly in Osborne and set a prime example by not using alcohol as a coping method to the stress of war and fighting unlike Stanhope who does not appear to be coping that well causing him to turn to drink.
Osborne never really seems to get cross and seems strangely happy and optimistic even though
