Storyboard Text

  • Act 1
  • Act 1
  • ... What happened to her then may have determined what happened to her afterwards, and what happened to her afterwards may have driven her to suicide. A chain of events.
  • Act 2
  • "Public men, Mr.Birling, have responsibilities as well as privileges."
  • "you'll apologize at once... I'm a public man."
  • Mr.Birling opens the play by thanking Edna for the port she has bought out to the table. The Birlings are celebrating sheila and Geralds engagement. the Birling's throw a lot of parties for celebrations. birling rises t deliver the promised toast. He prefaces the speech by greeting Gerald's patents and them not being here.
  • Act 2
  • Each of them are in some part responsible for her death, and together are entirely responsible. The reputition in the inspector's lines reflect the 'chain' he is talking about.
  • Act 3
  • The inspector enters and makes an impression of massiveness. Birling identifies he must be an inspector as he has never seen him before. Birling appears to remember the name, the inspector enforces him that she used to be employed in his work. the inspector only likes to speak to one person at a time, and not all at once. the inspector is gaining power and control over the situation.
  • Act 3
  • "But just remember this. One Eva Smith has gone-but there are millions of Eva Smiths and John Smiths left with us, with their lives, their hopes and fears, their suffering and a chance of happiness, all intertwined with our lives and what we think and say and so . We don't live alone. We are members of one body. We are responsible for each other. And I tell you that the time will soon come when, if men will not learn that lesson, then they will be taught in free and blood and anguish. Good night."
  • Not only do the Birling's show little concern for others but they are inadequate parents. They will only defend the children if it does not damage their own reputation. this also gives the inspector an insight to how they all act as a family, and how he is able to break them.
  • "You're not the type of Father a chap could go to when he's in trouble."
  • Sheila wants her family to take blame for everything they have done in the past, whether Eva/Daisy is dead or not. She is bitter about her families unwillingness to accept blame. The inspector is trying to get into everyone's head, sheila has picked up on this
  • "I suppose we're all nice people now."
  • This sums up Priestleys' message. The inspectors final lines, from a longer speech he makes shortly before is exit, are blistering delivery of what Priestly thinks and his social message. He promises 'fire blood and anguish' also looks forward to the first and second world wars, a resonance, which, to Preistley's 1946 audience must have been quite chilling."
