Transcript of Journey's End
And now i come to the great news. i reported at battalion head quarters, and the colonel looked in a little book, and said, "you report to C company-Captin Stanhope". Can't you imagine what i felt? I was taken along some trenches and shown a dug-out. there was an awfully nice officer there- quite old- with grey hair'- [Osborne clears his throat] - 'later Dennis came in. He looked tiered, but thats because he works so frightfully hard, and because of the responsibility. Then i went on duty on the front line, and a sargent told me all about Dennis. He said that Dennis is the finest officer in the Battalion, and the men simply love him. He hardly ever sleeps in the dug-out; he's always up in the front line with the men, cheering them on with jokes, and making them keen about things, like he did the kids at school. I'm awfully proud to think he's my friend.
"The sun is shining quite brightly in the trench outside" -
This is where Sheriff ends the act 2 scene 1 with the focus of light. Sheriff may of used this to influence that audience that the officers in the trenches always had hope and something to look forward to like the saying "there's always a light at the end of a tunnel"
"The sunlight has gone from the dug-out floor, but still shines brightly from in the trench."
-Sheriff may of used this because the men always had the war on their mind and their hope will of gone while out there, but they always have hope burried in the back of their mind which may be enough to keep them going. This may link with the line "but still shines brightly from in the trench"
Where Stanhope first won the argument of wanting to read the letter. He then hesitates and doesn't want to read it. Osborne later offers to read it for him.
Highlight it all.
Raleigh always looks up to Stanhope.
-He appriciates what Stanhope does.
-Proud he's his in Stanhopes Battalion.
This shows that Stanhope clearly has a soft side for Raleigh and may of felt like he was portraying him and invading his privacy by reading his letter.
"Sit down have a whiskey"
This shows hospitality.
They used to do this at home and because they've been at war so long they have adapted the trench to being their home, therefore they carry on their homely manners.
[The Sergeant- Major takes a dirty little notebook from his pocket and jots down notes with a very small stub of pencil]
This shows that the book is used a lot so must be important.
(clears his throat)
-this shows he clearly has something important to say.
"yes, sir. but what i mean is- they're bound to make a big thing of it."
stanhope: "(cheerily) Oh, i think they will!"
this shows that Stanhope is being sarcastic about the situation.
Stanhope: "then we advance and win the war"
sergeant major: (pretending to make a note) "win the war. very good, sir."
this shows they're positive, optimistic and open minded about winning the war and it being over soon and being able to go home.
Draw a big bracket from where Stanhope says
"there bound to"
to the bottom of the page just before Osborne comes in. this section is very structured.
