The theme of Idiot's Delight is the use of characters to reflect the various countries involved in the war.

Keeping that in mind, what does it say about his decision to have an American represent the hero in the story? How might it actually have foreshadowed real events that would take place years later? How does Harry symbolize America and what do his heroic actions at the end of the play say about the statement Sherwood is making?

Essay Topic 3

Weber is portrayed in a different way than the other characters. What impression does he first make and why did Sherwood choose it for the character? What is significant about the way Weber responds to the hotel in comparison to some of the other characters, like Harry and Irene? What does it tell the audience about Weber and how does it lead to his actions in the future.
