    What does 'half shy, half assertive' show?

    Eric is somewhat socially awkward, as shown by this quotation as well as others ("suddenly guffaws" is a good one). Shy and assertive are very contrasting characteristics; when placed in juxtaposition in this way they show how uncomfortable Eric is in the social situation. Some people would say that it reflects how he has something to hide (his alcoholism and his part in Eva's story).

    I do OCR as well and I what I revise is the characters, dramatic devices and how Priestly uses them for effect and also the message Priestly is trying to give his audience. Also revise a little bit of context as this will help develop your answer more reaching into those top level answers. Best of luck.
