The story takes off smoothly from a drawing room farce to a darkly philosophical tragicomedy, which is sure to draw the viewers into the middle of it without them noticing: and to leave them drained at the end. As the Inspector questions the family members in the dining room, it becomes obvious that each person had a connection to the young woman and had treated her badly. Why is no-one concerned at the end by the strange and completely unexplained inspector's appearance in the first place?

The narrative of the play delves around a mysterious Inspector who interrupts the celebration of a respectable British family. The story uncovers how each family member offers a piece of the story and indeed blame as to why Eva took her own life.By the end of the play each character has reacted according to their temperament, whether they have found the events a sobering experience, or intend to put the revelations and offer of a new way of thinking behind them. Under interrogation, every member of the family turns out to have a shameful secret which links them with her death. Die wahre Mentalität der Charaktere kommt immer mehr zum Vorschein, diejenigen, dessen poliertes Äußeres anfänglich täuscht, zeigen ihr wahres Gesicht, und diejenigen, die schon nach außen hin Schlechtigkeit ausstrahlen, wandeln sich entweder zum Guten oder bleiben gleich (schlecht). One Eva Smith has gone – but there are millions and 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. His prolific output continued right up to his final years, and to the end he remained the great literary all-rounder.

Birling is her husband's social superior; he refers to himself as a "hard-headed practical man of business". It deals with issues of exploitation, abandonment and social ruin, within the framework of a detective mystery. When I first read the play - I remember a few classmates being confused that one family encountered the same girl, which went beyond coincidence - far too contrived. 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.Der Zeitgeist der brutalen Umstände und des brutalen Denkens des Frühkapitalismus ließen der jungen Toten zu Lebzeiten regelrecht keine Chance zu überleben. Der Autor verwendet einen sehr sachlichen Stil, Vulgärsprache kommt trotzt der Dauer-Wörtlichen Rede kaum vor. I didnt actually mind this though because I feel like the characters, the storyline, and the main message was there. Each family member is confronted suddenly and brutally with their rotten involvement in the downward spiral of a young suicide's life.

Pristli je bio toliko popularan a njegov uticaj na savremeno pozorište (a tek televizijsku dramaturgiju) tako snažan da danas, paradoksalno, njegovi komadi deluju sasvim prevaziđeno jer smo svaki koncept i preokret već videli po sto puta. It's shocking that this book is largely ignored by Americans (witness the fact that only a few more than 50 people have reviewed it here on "goodreads"). Every action has consequences - seeing these characters interactions crash into each other, smack them in the face and then pull the rug from under the only one standing, it's delicious to see. Inspektor Gul (dobro, pre sedamdesetak godina ovo ime nije bilo toliko prozirno ni, da se ne lažemo, smešno) primorava okupljene bogataše da se suoče sa vlastitim udelom krivice u samoubistvu nesrećne devojke.

Then Goole drops his final bomb: the culprit is none other than Eric, her son, an accusation which the young man accepts. Additionally Priestley is very clear about the physical attributes of his characters and their demeanour, to similar effect. During the Second World War he became a well known voice on the radio, having in the meantime established a reputation as a journalist and critic. Blah blah blah, more exposition, the young female character is the reasonably morally apt family member and yet still manages to be the most un-feminist character ever - and then we finally start getting into the actual story.
