Below I have written an intro for a possible exam question that could come up next week. Could anyone please give any pointers on how to improve. Thanks

How and why does Sheila change in An Inspector Calls?
• how Sheila responds to her family and to the Inspector
• how Priestley presents Sheila by the ways he writes


Sheila Birling is a prominent character throughout the play ‘An Inspector Calls’. Priestley presents Sheila as the most malleable character; this is done to show how Priestley believes that the way to change a capitalist society is through the younger generation as their political opinions can be the most easily influenced by those around them and the society they grow up in. One could argue that this attempt to influence the younger generation is unfair, as Priestley is attempting to force his political views upon the young viewers by using an extreme and fictional case in order to sway the opinions of the future generation.

You should start with a thesis (a sentence answering the question) e.g Priestly presents Sheila Birling as a character who admits her wrongs and takes responsibility showing her change. ☺️😇
