Extracts from this document...


English coursework Inspector calls The play an Inspector Calls was set in the year 1912 in the industrial city Brumley. This story is about when an Inspector Goole enters the house of the Birlings who were an upper-middle class family enjoying an engagement party between the daughter of the Birlings and the son of another wealthy family. The Inspector changes everyone's life forever. The setting is in the dining room of the house, it has furniture of the time.
