Reply before monday guys🤗CAN SOMEONE MARK THIS AND TELL ME HOW TO IMPROVE I KNOW THERE MUST BE SOO MANY MISTAKES...😭😭( essay on eric)
Priestly explores his ideas through different characters.Every character is created for purpose to force audience to not make mistakes as Birlings and Gerald did.Eric is from middle class family which quite wealthu.He’s spoilt but doesn’t mean;h cant make mistakes.But being honest telling the truth is the main purpose of it.At the end Eric eventually tells the whole truth but going against his family.

Eric is alcholic which his parnets doesnt have idea of.”drink first” as drinking is first thing for him nothing else.Mostly it’s said that people start drinking when there’s lots of pressure or person is lonely.Same thing with Eric.He’s still kid for his parents described as “silly boy”.

Later on,Priestely explores his real ideas behind Eric’s character.”you killed her” suggesting he’s broken by knowing truth what her mother did with his”own grandchild”.Eventhough somehow he was blamed for his and Eva’s unnamed relationship;he accepted his responsibility by helping her.”she didn’t want me to marry her” but Eva knew that he didnt loved her.Priestley’s idea behind this can be that a marriage without love can’t be every happily successful.

Priestley creates atmosphere where audience must be thinking that young and new generation is changing.Thats because if parents are wrong sometimes ;its better to go against them to make them realise their mistakes.”you never did”,”you never tried”.The use of word ‘you’emphasises not just his father even his mother ‘never’ understood him or supported.As in other words he’s trying to say that they just payed attention to ‘public scandal’ and being ‘public man’.He’s repentanted by his parents behaviour.”ashamed of both of you”meaning as he didn’t expected this from his own parents who “helped to kill her”somewhere.

In conlusion,Eric is new direction of the bright left wing politics support in equality presented by Priestly to to change everyone’s thinking.Eric is hysterical like his sister Sheila atleast they both has heart.

Hi, I haven't started studying Inspector calls yet. But, I can tell you that you need to check your Spelling, punctuation and grammar. Also you should expand further on your points using PQD/PEEL/PEEE/PEE or whatever your school uses.

Also, for your intro you could go something like this:

Priestly explores and presents his ideas and messages through various characters. One of those characters is Eric who is from a middle class family. Preistly shows (write a theme) through Eric by (give example and quote, then expand). Moreover the reader is able to see Eric's journey throughout the text which implements Priestley's main message for the text (write whatever Eric's journey shows).

Continue like this for four or five paragraphs and then conclude something like this maybe:

In summation,Eric is brings about about a new direction of the strong passionate left wing views that Priestley is in support of. Priestley has used a variety of literary devices to present different themes such as (state themes) through out the text. Priestley was successful at (synonym for presenting) his message as he ensured that the reader understood Eric's mind frame and used empathy so that they could see themselves in Eric's shoes.

Hope this helps!
Unfortunately I haven't fully read or studied Inspector calls yet.

I wouldn't have any idea about a mark, but I think it could be improved a little:

I'm going to use the sentence you used: ”you killed her” suggesting he’s broken by knowing truth what her mother did with his”own grandchild” to illustrate my points

- One thing you could do is, as well as the quotations you used, focusing on individual words by saying what word class they are, what connotations they have and what effect it has on the audience.

E.g. you could focus on the word 'Grandchild' which would be an example of a noun/emotive language. The connotations of the word 'Grandchild' would be ideas of innocence and vulnerability. It's effect could be to demonstrate how callous the mother is etc.

- When mentioning the effect on the audience, you could do multiple audiences. What I mean is you could do the audience now and what the audience watching the play would feel (though it was set in 1912, the audience would be from 1945 as that was when it was first performed).

So for example, in the quote "you killed your own grandchild", nowadays you would say the audience would be absolutely horrified at the actions of the mother, but at the time the play was performed there was a higher pressure on women to be caregivers, so it could be seen that the mother was failing at her societal role of caring for children.

- You could encapsulate these two points in a 'theme' you could say Priestley is presenting to the audience. So for my point, the theme would be 'maternal instinct' as it concerns the actions of the mother causing the 'grandchild' to die.

So overall, your sentence: ”you killed her” suggesting he’s broken by knowing truth what her mother did with his”own grandchild”

could become: "Priestley uses the theme of maternal instinct to present to the audience how broken Eric is at the truth he faces. When "you killed your own grandchild," the emotive noun 'grandchild' connotes innocence, vulnerability and dependence and when combined with the past tense verb 'killed' which connotes murder demonstrates how callous Eric believes the mother is. An audience now would be completely horrified with her actions that contributed towards these consequences, but an audience at the time would also perceive how the mother could not fulfil the societal role of caring for children and obeying a maternal instinct which emphasises how distraught Eric would be at the situation. This creates a tense atmosphere and encapsulates how Priestley could be criticising the role of women many people subscribed to at the time.......etc..."

I don't know how helpful this will be, but I hope this is useful

Edit: Forgot to mention, this would just be an example of how to analyse the language in the text, as my paragraph doesn't really answer your essay question as mine isn't as focused on Eric (Mostly because I can barely remember An Inspector Calls lol)

You should look for quotes that specifically show a theme or context. Search the internet for something like inspector calls quote showing (enter theme).

Also you could talk about the negative and/or positive connotations of words and how they affect the audience.

BTW if inspector calls is a play use audience if it is a story use reader. Because I am not sure which one it is.

Hope this helps!

I'm sorry, but I don't know if I understand your question. Do you mean how can you apply a theme and context to a quote you find? If so:

To apply a theme to it, you find a few quotes that all pull together a similar idea (it can be any you can think of, but it kinda has to be a little relevant to the text). So in your classes you may have learned that An Inspector Calls explores themes like class, age, gender or responsibility etc.

So say if you wanted to explore responsibility, you'd have to pick quotes that scream this idea out to you, for example you could have:

Mr Birling:
"There's every excuse for what your mother and I did"
"A man has to make his own way - has to look after himself - and his family too"
Sheila:
"So I'm really responsible?"

These quotes shout to me that the characters are conflicted about responsibility because they are either shifting blame or saying it's someone else's problem etc.

As for context, you have to consider what society was like at the time the play was set and the time the audience viewed it. So since it was set in 1912 you could say:
Many people were religious
There were gender roles of women to be housewives and men to go to work
ect...

So you imagine you are in society at that time and that you believe all the things they do, and then read the quote again and see if any significant thing about the quote jumps out to you compared to the beliefs you have today. (For example, a quote about women e.g. being in the kitchen would be seen as an appalling sexist remark today, but in 1912 it may have been seen as a regular, popular belief to have etc.).

Context is an assessment objective regardless of the question, whether character-based or theme-based. You should aim to weave in context for any of your interpretations regarding post-1914 British literature in your course.
