I have to start my coursework essay when I go back after half-term. I'm not exactly sure what the question or topic is but it's on 'The Inspector Calls'. Is there any advice on how to get a top mark (28,29,30)? Thank you
An Inspector Calls is a fairly straightforward text to analyse. You should look at each character and relate their ideas to the capitalism vs socialism debate that dominates the book. You can see it most clearly with characters such as Mr Birling, whose mention of the Titanic as being unsinkable is a metaphor for how in the view of Priestley capitalism was a sinking boat that would take its advocates down with it.
