'But just remember this. One Eva Smith has gone – but there
Transcript of 'But just remember this. One Eva Smith has gone – but there
Learning Objective: To develop my analytical writing by constructing focused and developed PEE paragraphs
How can we improve this paragraph?
The Inspector is an important character in the play. His entrance in Act One interrupts Mr Birling's speech about collective responsibility, as Birling says 'a man has to mind his own business and look after himself and his own - and - ', the stage directions quote '
We hear the shard ring of a front door bell. Birling stops to listen.
' This shows that Birling will not be able to complete his speech and therefore, the Inspector's arrival is important.
The Inspector's final speech
'But just remember this. One Eva Smith has gone – but there are millions and millions of Eva Smiths and John Smiths still left with us, with their lives, their hopes and fears, their suffering and chance of happiness, all intertwined with our lives, with what we think and say and do. We don’t live alone. We are members of one body. We are responsible for each other. And I tell you that the time will soon come when, if men will not learn that lesson, then they will be taught it in fire and blood and anguish. Good night.'
