An inspector calls is set in 1912 but was written in 1945 The story is about an inspector interrogating a family about the death of a girl He speaks to them one at a time and shows them a photograph or Eva He gets them to confess what they did and he convinces they that they all helped to kill her Inspector Gooles name is an obvious pun on ghoul a spirit or a ghost The name makes him sound ghostly and he seems very confident when he speaks When he walks in the room he isnt a big man but made to seem big he creates an impression of massiveness and purposefulness So we know that he has come for a specific reason in which yet we do not know He knows what he is doing and he thinks he has a lot of power over the Birling family when Mrs Birling says you have no power to change my mind and the inspector replies yes I do He also speaks carefully weightily and has a disconcerting way of looking hard at the person before actually speaking By this I think that he does this to show he means business and wants to get down to it He pieces together all the information he said he read from the dead girls diary and tells the each member of the family a tiny bit of information and they then start to confess to what they have done He only deals with one person at a time and controls the pace and tension Slowly the story of Evas life is unravelled He is very mysterious and seems to know what is going to happen before it actually does He shows the photograph to one person at a time and the audience begin to wonder whether he is showing the same photograph to the people and if it is a totally different girl Due
