Birling in “An Inspector calls” is quite the opposite between the relationship that Lennie and George share. At the start of the play we know that Mr. Birling is a Capitalist “A man has to mind his own business and look after himself.” The impact on us the readers is that we know how arrogant and disgusting, capitalist were in the 1912.
