    So in a recent practice essay i wrote about Inspector calls as a bad guy almost - i see he is presented as morally right - all that dramatic irony and stuff BUT
    He never seems to follow his own advice - he judges others but doesn't judge himself
    Nobodies perfect so how can a character that believes he is right all the time be morally perfect?!
    I also had the idea that the inspector objectifies Eva, using her as a ploy for the socialist message..
    Just a thought...opinions?

    Maybe he doesn't want you to think he's perfect, but human, and still a better human than the Birlings? Alternatively, Preston expects you to relate to the Birlings as a natural defence to someone (Inspector) taking the moral high ground is to argue, such that the big point at the end has more impact as you realise you were in fact wrong.

    It's nearly a year since I actually studied AIC now, so sorry if this makes no sense. :facepalm:
