How is it present in the play

How is it present in the play?

  • The generation gap between Eric and Sheila and Mr. & Mrs. Birling is clearly portrayed in the play.

  • Priestley has deliberately chosen to explore the effect of age on the characters’ morals.


Role of inspector goole

Role of Inspector Goole

  • Inspector knows how to deal with the different age groups to get the most he can out of them.

  • For example: The Inspector acknowledges Eric’s alcoholism and realizes that Eric is in need of it to complete the inquiry. In addition, he realizes that Eric admires the feeling of being treated as an adult and therefore uses this to lure Eric into confession.


How theme contributes to eva s death

How theme contributes to Eva’s death

  • The younger generation has been exposed to a more open community resulting in affairs such as the ones between Eric and Eva & Gerald and Eva.

  • The older generation would have been shocked to hear such “I don’t think we want any further details of this disgusting affair”- Mrs. Birling pg. 38

  • - The new mind set of the younger generation has indirectly been a cause of Eva’s death as 2 of the characters have been associated with her due to an affair.


Gerald

Gerald?

  • Gerald Croft is caught in the middle, being neither very young nor old. In the end he sides with the older generation, perhaps because his aristocratic roots influence him to want to keep the status quo and protect his own interests.

  • Ultimately, we can be optimistic that the young - those who will shape future society - are able to take on board the Inspector's message.
