He’s grown up in an unfavorable environment, which is unfavorable in part due to how we treat those living in such environments. We owe him, a little discussion, our due diligence,” (Rose, 5) resonates as paternal, projecting compassion of a father. Contrasting with juror three whose estranged relationship with his son demonstrates his preconceived prejudice. He projects guilt on the defendant, based on his own failures as a father. The prejudice of juror three and other jurors’ has considerable influence in the initial eleven-to-one guilty vote.
Therefore, ‘An Inspector Calls’ challenged his audience so that they thought about possible upcoming disasters which may lay ahead for them if they were not to learn from the past mistakes. He used characters to represent the social classes: Eva Smith was of the lower class, Arthur Birling and family are middle class citizens, and Gerald Croft was from the higher class. Arthur Birling is presented as a capitalist in the play; he thinks that social class is all that matters. Birling continuously tried to gain approval off of Gerald by mentioning his upcoming knighthood, and telling him that the port that they’re drinking is ‘exactly the same port your farther gets.’ From this, the audience see’s that Gerald has higher status, through Birling repeatedly trying to impress him. Another way in which Birling tried to make himself seem important by mentioning his connections with influential people – playing gold with the ‘Chief inspector.’ The Inspector is used within ‘An Inspector Calls’ is used to express the views and opinions of JB Priestley, as he contrasts/threatens Arthur Birling’s middle class values (the reputation of his company, his important connections).
An obvious thing they have in common is a dislike for one another that is stemmed from their ‘political rivalry’. These examples caused conflict that made their differences stand out even more. The boys being in the same age category and sharing a couple of views on living strategies didn’t cover up just how diverse they were. The first difference between them was how Jack had no respect for the rules the other boys agreed on. As the novel progressed Jack became more savage and in-humane while Ralph tried to keep the innocence he’ll never get back.
Eric is presented to the readers in two different ways, at the beginning he is presented as an immature person but at the end we find out that he is actually a responsible person. In this essay I’m going to analyze how he is presented at the beginning and who he eventually turns out to be at the end. At the beginning of the story while the family was having dinner Eric kept saying jokes and drinking alcohol. I know this because he quoted “suddenly I felt I just had to laugh”. The fact that he was laughing without any reason shows that he was drunk.
The differences between the father and son are so abundant that Baba emphasizes, “If I hadn’t seen the doctor pull him out of my wife with my own eyes, I’d not believe he’s my son” (Hossieni 25). Amir listens to this hurtful quote and becomes more persistent than before to achieve his father’s friendship and adoration. Amir starts trying to intrigue his father that he even starts to play sports. It was apparent however, that this did not turn out to be one of Amir’s strengths. Baba’s shortage of emotion led Amir into an event between Hassan and himself.
I think the reason he was made to just appear was to create that feeling for the audience watching the film. It straightaway makes you wonder and think about him by introducing him into the film in such a way and I think it was very effective. When the inspector appears in the play, they say that he looks at the person he is addressing very thoughtfully and hard before actually speaking. When he fist starts speaking he is very polite and thoughtful almost seems a bit dazed. He holds off at first what he is actually there to say and the, when Mr Birling starts getting agitated, he announces what has happened in a very firm and straightforward way.
The destruction of the youth of the boys at Devon corrupts innocence they have within themselves. The moral youth is lost when one understands he reality of the inimical world.

He restates his companionship towards his best friend and occasionally contends to the “natural” envy he possesses. Gene admits to his desire to see finny disciplined for his sly behavior at school.
The Hally threw away the friendship that had filled the void his father would not be able to fill. That afternoon tested their friendship, to see if it was strong enough. It changed their views about each other; it made them resentful towards each other if not at each other. It appeared that Hally sought to prove a point that he was superior than Sam. The moment he ordered Sam to refer to him as Master Harold, Sam replied to him by telling him about the consequences of his actions.
In the fourth paragraph of his speech, Elie Wiesel asks of indifference, “Is it necessary at times to practice it to keep one’s sanity, live normally, enjoy a fine meal and a glass of wine, as the world around us experiences harrowing upheavals?” This question suggests to the audience that he is not completely against indifference. However, he then goes on to say that while indifference is certainly easier than action, it is not necessarily right. This contradiction makes the audience begin to realize that indifference is wrong. Elie Wiesel’s word choice for the speech is meant to horrify, anger, and otherwise arouse the audience into action. Many words used in his speech were used to cause feelings of anger and empathy.
Someone who blames everyone else for the consequences of their actions? Someone who doesn't own-up to their actions and try to make the situation better again? Cole is that 'someone'. He goes to the island mad at his parents because all the other times that he was in trouble with the law, his parents would pay the fees and get him out, however, this time, none of that happens. It was his mistake for beating up Peter anyways, yet he's mad at his parents and his lawyer because they didn't get him out.
