Arthur refuses to share or take any of the blame for this as he feels he did nothing wrong by sacking her. To be honest there isn’t much to like about Arthur. He likes to constantly remind people of how important he is and how he is a ‘hard headed, practical man of business. To a 1940’s ... ... middle of paper ... ... actually dead (yet). He leaves in a mysterious manor.
Birling he depicts as pompous, selfish, uncaring of others and only looking out for himself. For example even his daughter's wedding will be beneficial to him with increased social standing and better business connections. Birling represents everything that is wrong with society. In the Inspector's character Priestly shows us a man who is caring, thoughtful and respectable. He is the moral conscience, a warning of what could happen if people don't change.
Biff, on the other hand, had it worse because his father sold him lies about his importance in the business industry, which forced Biff to admire Willy and strive to be like him one day. Willy’s consistent stroking of Biff’s ego misled Biff into thinking that he could get away with anything simply because he was “popular” and “well-liked”. However, when Biff accidentally stumbles upon his father’s adultery, his world crashes in on itself as he loses his sense of identity. He quotes, “I realized what a ridiculous lie my whole life has been” (Act II). Willy wasn’t much better with his “friends”.
In fact she never called her husband George unless she was trying to manipulate him in some way. Tesman is so blind to Hedda’s manipulative nature that he responded with joy, “Hedda- Oh, is this true?- What you’re saying?… I never noticed that you loved me in this way before”(1458). This disgusted Hedda because she was not truthfully trying to please Tesman and his reaction was one of excitement. With Hedda’s cold manipulati... ... middle of paper ... ...on to her problems. Hedda’s relationship with all three men ultimately created a life she was unhappy with thus leading her closer to her death.
Poverty prompts them to scrutinize and to envy the rich, who have what they want. Soon afterward (being used to getting what they want, they are not patient), they decide to take it for themselves, and the rich, who have become soft (556c), cannot defend it. With disparity of power and money still fresh in their minds, they enforce equality, redistributing wealth and filling offices by lot (557a). All that tells the discerning political scientist quite a lot about democratic souls. They are born from “stingy” oligarchical souls, but they, thanks to their fathers’ “lack of knowledge about rearing” (560b), lack the virtue of moderation.
But I care. I was almost certain for a knighthood in the next Honours List - ' He is again being a hypocrite, he cares about a titles medal but not a young girl's life, most certainly because she was a lower-class worker, and she tried to defy him. In conclusion Mr Birling is selfish, arrogant, self obsessed, and incompetent. He has no care for annoy other person around him, including his own family. He doesn't even know his children or even his wife.
However; their opinion quickly changes when they discover him to be proud, to be above his company, and above being pleased; and not all his large estate in Derbyshire could then save him from having a most forbidding, disagreeable countenance, and being unworthy to be compared to his friend (7). Although the shame in being beguiled by Darcy’s fortune forces the townspeople to resort to prejudice towards Darcy’s character, Darcy makes no effort to prove himself otherwise. In fact, his “manners gave a disgust, which turned the tide of his popularity” (7). Apparently, the towns people have the propensity to judge those who are higher in class but show arrogance; thus, it is necessary for Darcy to change his attitude, otherwise he is condemned to constant prejudices against him. The haughtiness of Darcy does not diminish at the Meryton ball when it the time came for him to dance with other women.
Furthermore, Tom is also dishonest directly to Daisy about his double life; Tom’s extramarital affair ultimately proves that he does not treat his spouse, Daisy, well. Tom does not respect his own wife as he constantly deceits her so he can be content “Tom is the sort of man who can exercise is potency only if he is with a certain kind of woman. Myrtle Wilson is such a woman; Tom’s chambermaid in Santa Barbara is another” (Page 79, Oral Aggression and Splitting, A.B. Paulson). Tom’s poor behavior and disloyalty towards Daisy is merely to satisfy his own needs and he does not care to consider the feelings of those around him.
Mr Birling, like many of the men in 1912, was very pompous and believed himself to be of a super... ... middle of paper ... ...ing to be sorry for, nothing to earn. We can all go on behaving just as we did. Eric is the only other who has been affected by the Inspector like Sheila, they are the younger generation and are both sorry for their faults, and are very likely to change their view of themselves thereby reducing the divide between lower and upper class people, as they realise how the both abused their position in society. Mr Birling and Mr Croft represent Priestley's criticism for businessmen who are only interested in making money and social climbing. Mr and Mrs Birling and Croft will never alter their ways even after the Inspector has exposed their true natures.
Both sisters are motivated by their desire for power they do not care the extent they must go to achieve this. They are dishonest to King Lear painting a false portrayal of their love for him, just so they gain the largest piece of the divided kingdom. Along with the land and the power over England, both sisters betray their promised responsibility to care for their father. Instead, Regan and Goneril plan to reduce their father remaining authority to feed their hunger for power. They disrespect King Lear by reducing the number of knights he is allowed to have and ultimately depriving him of shelter during a storm.
