These reasons include her inferior social class and her family obstacles. As a retaliation Elizabeth stuns Darcy by refusing his proposal very harshly stating "I had not known you a month before I felt that you were the last man in the world whom I could ever be prevailed on to marry." This shows the extent of her prejudice against Darcy as she says that even from the beginning she disliked him. She condemns him for his arrogant manner in which he proposed his actions to separate Jane and Bingley and his actions of unfairness on Wickham. He accepts these accusations without apology, even with contempt.

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.

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.

A law was made against her brother Polynice who had died battling against his very own brother and country. Antigone knew the consequences of disregarding the law, but since she was his sister she did not want to obey the law.

Whilst Petrucio think she's tamed she's not she has just learnt to find a compromise after all its what she actually wants. Kate has been badly behaved and angry simply because no one cared enough for her. Kate shows Petrucio in her speech and all her family just ho he is. People who have written it off as a piece of dramatic irony or her giving up were simply wrong and underestimating Kate's intelligence and character.
She wrote that letter as soon as he left, it's quite unfair and she even realizes it yet still writes it to satisfy herself. Even when he enlisted, she knew that he was not for him but for her. Editha noticed he became a different person after enlisting, " he made her feel as if she had lost her old lover and found a stranger in his place," if she had truly loved him she would not have felt giddy at the thought of kissing a stranger after losing her true love.

From the beginning George sees war as a negative thing that can bring so much pain and suffering contrary to Editha's views.

Her whole self is taken by shock when she realizes that she is now the victim of the very ritual she had gladly participated in, and looks for any possible way to avoid the consequences. She exclaims that it is unfair that she was chosen, just as I felt it was unfair that I was being isolated from the society when no one was willing to accept me. The activity of exclusion that we readily both took part in was suddenly unfair when it was turned against us. Hence, It is learned that one eventually has to bear the consequences of their actions and doesn’t realize they are wrong until put in the position of the person being victimized.
