By himself, Hamlet began to question himself further confusing himself and distracting him from his goal of revenge. Through the death of his father, hamlet lost trust in his people. Through the betrayal and remarrying of his mother, Hamlet lost trust in his mother and women, leading to his distrust in Ophelia.
Slowly, the inspector makes the family aware that they have played a large role in her suicide. We learn from the characters reactions and responses, what kind of people they really are. Sheila, Eric and Gerald realise their mistakes and how their attitudes and behaviour affect other people. Mr and Mrs Birling seemed convinced that they played no part in this tragedy. At the end of act 2, the inspector is questioning Mrs Birling about why she didn't give money to Eva Smith, who was in trouble.
When Margaret Hale attempts to “come and call upon” Nicholas Higgins’s house, he is at first confused and then allows her to visit as a friend (Gaskell 73). Nicholas’s dislike for people from the south is ignored for Margaret Hale and believes that “north and south has both met and made kind o’ friends in the big smokey place”. (Gaskell 73). The angry mob ruins the strike orchestrated by the union and Nicholas Higgins. The strike and angry mob that occurs in the novel is disastrous for Nicholas Higgins and he is unable to get his job back, instead of giving up he tries everything he can for a different job.
Analysis of An Inspector Calls The play revolves around the death of Eva Smith who is said to have committed suicide after her unfortunate meetings with each of the Birling’s and Gerald. At the start of the play the Birling’s are celebrating Sheila’s engagement with Gerald, when unexpectedly inspector Goole arrives to question the Birling’s and Gerald. The inspector tries to show and convince the characters how and what parts they played in Eva’s death. All the characters succumb to the inspector’s unconventional way of questioning and tell him how they each were in relation to Eva’s death. Each character played a part towards the eventual demise of Eva and they were all responsible for her death in one way or another.
Mr Birling discovers the death of Eva and feels no guilt for not protecting the girl. He feels justified in sacking the girl. Mrs Birling remains solid and also refuses to see how her actions could have been responsible for the girl's death. Her refusal to help the girl was what led to her suicide. It was only after she realises that Eric was the child's father she begins to show signs of weakening.
Sheila, whilst arguing with her parents about not carrying on life the way it was, used many different quotes to express her views. She said, " But that wont bring her back to life will it," and " Between us we drove that girl to commit suicide," and " But, Mother, don't forget that he showed you a photograph of the girl before that, and you obviously recognised it." Sheila and Eric hold hope for the younger generation and hope to build a new world. Preistley was criticising the behaviour and the complacency of his own society through the Birling's generation and if they do not change, it could lead to many consequences. The older generation are too rigid, as they don't learn from their mistakes.
In An Inspector Calls, J.B Priestly uses the Inspector to cause dramatic tension ... ... middle of paper ... ... of the Birlings think they are not acquittal to Eva/Daisy’s death. But the Younger generations do not agree with this. The younger generation consisting of Eric and Sheila both say they still feel guilty for what they have done even know they do not lead her to her suicide. But a few minutes later the Birlings receive a phone call and hear that there was a death at the Infirmary. Now as you know the poor girl did die, but how do you know that it wasn’t two different pictures and two different women.
This shows because when the inspector was talking to Author Birling, he was very annoyed at the inspector and didn't want to listen to what he had to say, this shows when Author says to the inspector "Look here inspector, im half a mind to report you. I've told you all I know and it doesn't seem very important." When Author had said it doesn't seem very important he meant about the case of Eva Smith who had committed suicide, which was one of his employees. Mr Birling had sacked her 2 years ago and he doesn't get the why it has to do with him. When Birling is speaking to the inspector, he seems to intimidate him.
In An Inspector Calls we meet the Birling family and Gerald Croft who are celebrating an engagement when they are interrupted by a police inspector who wants to ask them some questions about a mysterious and gruesome suicide. What follows is an unlikely chain of events as each character is linked to the dead girl in a way that could cause them trouble, and then we have a final dramatic twist. This play shows the difference in society in 1912, how people were expected to help only their families. If you were poor, then it was your own fault.
Each character has a different perception of the Inspector’s revelations and it is revealed that each member played a part, driving ‘Eva Smith’ to suicide. But as the play progresses an unexpected twist is delivered, when we realise all is not what it seems. ‘An Inspector Calls’ remains relevant because of the issues that often occur in the play. This is when the Birlings as a whole family are prejudiced towards the lower class. An example of this is when Mrs Birling says, “As if a girl of that sort would ever refuse money.” She is referring to Eva Smith when she refused to take money off Eric, as he was stealing it from his father, making out that she is worthless and needy.
