Extracts from this document...


The effect of Inspector Goole The inspectors' sudden entrance gives an impression of "massiveness, solidity and purposefulness". He has an air of authority that dominates the room. He is smartly dressed in a dark suit and he looks about fifty years old. He is serious, direct and makes a big impression. His entrance seems to be a surprise to Mr. Birling and the rest of the family, this brings more drama to the play. The inspector suddenly enters while Mr. Birling is giving a long lecture to the two young men Eric and Gerald. His timing seems to make a very big impression, as Birling attentively stops his speech and listens to the door, as it seems the Birling family was not expecting other visitors.

This has made a big impact on the Birling household. Overall the inspector has made massive changes to the people and they all no look at life in a different way. None of them were expecting this drama that has just happened. But this is only the start and what happens next also makes many changes as Sheila says "I hate to think how much he know that we don't know yet" this obviously means there are many more surprises. ...read more.
