I did inspector calls right at the beginning of y10 but I think when mr birding says there is ‘no chance of war’ it is dramatic irony since the audience knew that ww1 soon broke out. This makes Mr Birling seem untrustworthy and foolish which makes the audience not want to trust him and instead believe people like the Inspector’s socialist views rather than his capitalist views

Hi,
Have you tried Spark Notes for some inspiration? It gives some ideas of themes...

https://www.sparknotes.com/drama/an-...-calls/themes/

https://www.sparknotes.com/drama/an-inspector-calls/ - this page also has links to writing essays, context and quotes, which might help.

But really english is about your interpretation :-)
So relax lol. What do you think are important themes?? What are your opinions of the characters? Do they develop through the book and do your opinions of the characters change? This can tie into themes like guilt for example.
