Inspector Calls Essay

Extracts from this document...


INSPECTOR CALLS ESSAY This story is about a family celebration that gets interupted by an inspeactor inquiring about a young girls suicide comes apparent. In this period of time they all are to play a part to a young girls murder. They find out that they have turned this girl away until she coundn't take it anymore, she had enough of people of turning her away and endless refusal, she took the easy way out. As we find out nearer the end of the story that the inspector is a 'fake' and has been pranking the whole time. They are all relieved but does this changed the fact that the have all not cared for a girl and abused her physically and metaly.I will write up an charactisation on the two most, I think, interesting characters as they are so different. I will be studying Arthur and Sheila Birling. First of all I will study Arthur. Arthur is a very successful and interesting character as he believes that he is always right. ...read more.


I also think that he cannot admit when he is wrong and make a mense. In this play dramatic irony is used which says that the Titanic is unsinkable and the first world war will never happen but as this is set in 1912 all these things happen. Birling is not a father type man as Eric tells him, with a bit of encouragement from alcohol, but he says: "You're not the kind of chap a man can turn to when he's in trouble" This hows thats he's never really had an unformal relationship with his father, but very formal and this also probably means that they will never have a close relationship. Overall Arther Birling is a selfish and hard headed man who speaks before he thinks and doesn't considers peoples feelings and the aftermath. I think he was suited well with this play as he is hard to move from his spot which means that he has a very hard shell but acn be broken. Now I will study Sheila Birling. ...read more.


I feel overall that Sheila is a good character and very sensitive as she now knows that she has responsibillities to help the lesss needy, how ever poor they are. I think this is a very good learning point for her as I think also she will grow up remembering this and how she cast someone away out of their work and she will grow up to be a loving and caring person. I conclude this essay saying I have enjoyed this play\book as it has helped me to realise that we dont think of the consiquences and we dont care, but I realise we do have to. These two characters are extremly different even though they are son and daughter I feel they have been brought up in a rich and quite 'pompous' family which has meant a harsh up-coming which no feelings were allowed to be expressed but now she finally has. I think that Arthur is quite nasty and thinks only of money. Where as Sheila is a kind and giving person. This is quite a complex play as it has missing points and hidden meanings a clever devices used to give different messages. ...read more.
