    In the play “Inspector Calls” Sheila is a truthful and honest person and changes from the beginning and throughout the play. “Millward’s, I’ll go there,” this acknowledges that Sheila had been to Millwards.

The Inspector makes Sheila spill everything out and tell the truth. Sheila is the second one to admit to her…

Mrs. Birling (Sybil) being Mr. Birling’s ‘social superior’ always tries to correct him ‘Arthur’; you’re not supposed to say such…

    Some people view the Inspector as a messenger of God or a Prophet, almost like Jesus; he is warning us that we should change or danger will approach us. Other people might say that since Priestley was not a Christian then why should refer to a holy moral, the Inspector might be viewed as Priestley’s spokesman, who acts as Priestley’s mind or voice expressing his politics. The last speech of the Inspector is the message Priestley is trying to put through, he says…

    “An Inspector Calls” is a play written by JB Priestly, that revolves around a theme of blame and responsibility. To convey and show the moral of the play, it is contrasted to compare differences and to emphasize by setting responsibility as a central theme of the play but then providing a fascinating portrait of the way that people can let themselves off the hook and take no responsibility whatsoever. Priestly explicitly differentiates and portrays between those who have accepted their…
