An Inspector Calls
In what ways does Priestley present the effect of the inspector’s visit on Birling and Sheila?
‘An inspector calls’ was set in 1912 in the North Midlands in Brumley in the middle class suburbs by a socialist writer name J.B. Priestley he wrote the play in 1934 and was first performed in 1945. At the time he wrote ‘An Inspector Calls’ England was unstable with the rich keeping there money and not helping those who couldn’t afford to live as there was no welfare state this meant poverty for poor people for those who couldn’t afford to live a normal lifestyle this also meant that factory owners could pay there employees a small wage. As a socialist J.B. Priestley believed that this was wrong and that everyone should be equal have the chance of living a normal life with a wage that meant that they could do that. Priestley used ‘An Inspector Calls’ to put his points and views on this across.
