An Inspector Calls Companion Revision Guide (Whole Text)


Unit 1: Eric enters to face his interrogation by Inspector Goole and describes how he met Daisy Renton;

 P: The act opens and the mise-en-scene (stage movement of the characters) indicates that all the characters are in exactly the same onstage positions they occupied at the end of Act 2. Time has not moved on but paused.

 E:  Exactly as at the end of Act 2. Eric is standing inside the room and the others are staring at him. P50/Pr

E: This theatrical devise has been used by Priestley to create dramatic tension. The change of act gives the audience time to consider the new plot twist, the fact that Eric has entered to face his interrogation by the Inspector. In the third act of a well-made play there is a denouement where all the strands of the plot are resolved. When Eric enters he realises that the Inspector and his family knows of his involvement with Daisy Renton, ‘You know don’t you?’

In the play Priestley explores the idea of, ‘cause and effect, a succession of events leading to the death of Eva Smith. Mr Birling sacks her, Sheila complains to Milwards about her, Gerald uses her physically as does Eric who also gets her pregnant and Mrs Birling refuses financial support. All of this action shows that time makes us all responsible for one another.

Saved By The Teacher Companion Revision Notes  based on the PEE code (Point, Evidence, Explanation) are unique and unlike any other revision guides on the market because students and their parents can systematically track through the full text using a series of colour-coded buttons to help map plot, character development, themes, historical context and use of language.

Experienced teacher Sarah Haggar Batten has tested the Saved By The Revision Notes over many years and has gathered much evidence to suggest that revising texts in conjunction with PEE Guides help improve results by at least one grade.

These comprehensive revision notes provide the voice of a personal home tutor and equate to approximately 12 hours of expensive personal tutoring. They can also be used as part of the on-going revision process and can be revisited several times. At the end of the revision process students can lay down their texts and rely on the notes to support last minute revision.
