Not only did people suffer from the plague and what it brings, however people suffered from their own personal upbringing.
Back in medieval Europe, there was a lack of medical knowledge therefore the preventions of catching the bubonic plague were very weird and some were very useless. Some preventions were to keep isolated in houses were everybody was healthy and was not sick. Some ran away leaving their families and houses escaping to the countryside.

Its just I cant help thinking about this girl-destroying her life so horribly.’ This shows Sheila feels commiseration and sensitivity towards Eva and her death which comes across as genuine regret when she realises she could be linked to her suicide. Mr Birling interrupts her questioning by becoming even more aggressive when trying to defend her daughter.

He doesn’t realise the depth of the familys involvement and still feels able to be bitter and outspoken towards the inspector. However, this does impact the inspector at all because he continues his questioning with Sheila further.
Cody Ostlund SPA 101 Sec 1 4-17-11 Aztec Society The Aztecs were a very organized and religious society. The worshipped many deities, and performed sacrificial rituals to please their deities.
