“An Inspector Calls” by J.B. Priestly

In our literature class, we are reading a play called “An Inspector Calls” by J.B. Priestly. Our homework was to write the description of the people who where in the book.

Names Descriptions:

Mr. Arthur Birling: (Father)

  • Interested on money, he was a business man
  • He fired Eva Smith from his company, since she was one of the 5 people who started a strike wishing a better salary

Mrs. Sybil Birling: (Mother)

Sheila Birling: (Daughter)

  • Compared the same thought with Eric about the trouble with Alton and Eva Smith

Eric Birling: (Son)

  • He likes drinking

Gerald Croft: (Sheila’s future husband)

  • Sheila’s and Gerald’s “love” was a little bit an arrangement, since Gerald form part of the upper class (like the Birlings), so if they were married, Mr. Arthur was going to have more money.

Inspector Goole

  • Very Ironic

Eva Smith

  • She committed suicide

2 years before…

  • She worked in Mr. Birling’s company
  • She was fired since she was one of the 5 persons who started a strike asking for more money
  • She live 2 months in a very bad situation (with out a job) and no one could help her since she didn’t have parents (they had died), she didn’t have many friends, etc.
  • She change her name
  • She was lucky, she found a job in a clothing shop were the higher classes buy cloth (where Sheila goes)
  • She was fired since one consumer (Sheila) complained

Name Chain

In our first class of writing & oral, we played a game with our teacher, Dani Barra. First, Dani wrote her name in the blackboard ” D A N I E L A”. Then, she said something she likes or something she is good at and the student who is identified has to go to the blackboard, write his / her name and say why he / she felt identified with the thing that Dani has just said. Finally, he  has to say something he likes, and so on so far.

In my opinion, I like these game since I love playing and having fun with my friends. The objective of the game was to know more things about our friends and I learned new things of them which I didn’t know before. For example, now I know that my friend Santiago has a dog and that my friend  Flor like dancing.

When all our names were finally written in the blackboard, they made up a crossword.
