    priestly wants us to see Eva smith as the victim of the play. how does he achieve this?
    i think he does this by saying in the story about eva going on strike because off Mr Berlin then taking the hole factory with her,but not for long since they grow poor and whitey since Mr Berlin refused to pay the workers. so here preistly has put eva smith as a victim by making her go on strike and take the hole factory with her so mr birlin is left with no workers and an empty pocket which he does not like since he is a capitalist and loves his money. so this makes eva seem harsh towards mr birlin. and she also put the other workers into her shameful ways well that is how you would think off it.

    She is used to convey the destructive power of Birling’s selfish/capitalist beliefs. How is this done? this is done by getting the inspector to go to the birlin family and makes them all reveal there truths within each other. hen they do so they all find out that they all have a part in Eva smiths death. which makes all the birlin family feel cold hearted and guilty for what they had done. so this makes Mr Berlins power run down a notch since he starts to care less for his money and starts to think more about what he has done to eva smith and why he did it, i think priestly did this because he wanted to put a point across that you dont know what you have done until it has already happened.

    Priestley uses her fate as a means to argue for a more socialist society. How?
    because priestly thinks that capitalist only care about them selves and are careless and greedy with there money. so priestly has done this by making Mr birlin a capitalist man. he has done this to show people that it is a lot better to be a socialist like ea smith then it is to be a capitalist like Mr birlin. he has done this by showing us all the mean things Mr birlin does and all the nice thing Eva try’s to do. and he also try’s to show that if we are all socialist then we are all eqwall and like to share with each other and be siveal and pleasant towards are friends and family.

    Priestley wants us to see Eva Smith as the victim of the play. How does he achieve this? he shows this by saying that Eva smith goes on strike and anoyes Mr Berlin. since she took all his workers with her. she only did this because Mr Berlin was not giving Eva a good pay. so Eva seems really horrible to Mr Berlin point of view so she seems like a villain towards Mr Berlin.

    She is used to convey the destructive power of Billing’s selfish/capitalist beliefs. How is this done? she does this by getting the inspector to go to the birling family house and trying to get all his family to tell the truth to each other. which is pretty shocking since they all had a part in her death so she wants to cause madness in there family like they did in to her family and life.

    She is used to convey the unfairness of the class system. this is because off she does not have much money like mr Berlin so she is a socialist. so she is the same as every one else and likes to share and care for others around her.but mr berlin does not like this attitude in his factory so he tries to make her life a complete bust. which is what i think since mr berling is very cold hearted and loves his money. home work for mr detman 3\11\15
