    I think they will ask a question on Mr Birling for inspector calls as they have not done that character yet looking through past papers!
    I am definitely most worried for Inspector Calls, I am doing Of Mice and Men and relationships for poetry.

    I reckon learning 2 poems to contrast is a good idea = power seems to come up a lot so you have the river god, horse whisperer and Omidias (cant spell it yet)

    Now time for interrogation -

    do you have any idea what it might be on - has your teacher given any hints?
    How are you revising this?

    And are you as screwed as me?

    Anyone know how to structure an answer for Mr Birlig? What quotes? AIC

    How dogmatic he is about ww1/2 and the titanic being 'unsinkable absolutely unsinkable' makes audience immediately dislike him
    only cares about social class and climbing the social ladder by boasting to Gerald and the inspector about being lord mayor and hoping to get a knighthood 'just a knighthood of course'
    Highlights Priestleys views on how bad capitalism is
    No sense of social responsibility for the death of Eva which makes the audience dislike him even more and prefer the inspector and shelias socialist views which was Priestleys aim of the well made play
    hasnt changed attitudes by end
    attitues to to women and treating them as 2nd class citizens

    hope this his helps, if you write about stuff like that then I think you will be okay this is was I'm going to write about for mine if Mr Birling comes up

    Scared ****less for moday so if anyone has any thoughts or opinions on the questions below regarding OMAM it woud be much appreciated

    1. The end of the novel is obviously quite tragic, but the very last line is Carlson saying "Now what the hell ya suppose is eatin' them two guys?". I feel this is a very abrubt ending and ruins the emotional atmosphere. Any ideas as to why Steinbeck has done this?

    2. We find out that the reason Crooks has a crippled back is due to a horse kicking him. George also lies and says that a horse kicked Lennie in the head. Despite the fact one of these is a lie, they are both incredibly similar reasons and I was wondering if they had any significance to each other? I don't understand why Steinbeck would make two very similar excuses, regardless of the fact that one of them is not meant to be true, if they were not somehow linked.

    3. Slim is the only character in the whole book whose name we learn before actually meeting him. All other characters are described before we know what to call them. I thought this was because Steinbeck wanted us to judge them on their descriptions before we knew their names, so I am unsure why this would be different for Slim?

    Just some things I am puzzled about, thank you if you do have any answers
