An Inspector Calls - Role of the Inspector in the play

Revision notes on the role of the Inspector, Inspector Goole, in the play "An Inspector Calls" and how the characters interact with him and what he teaches.

Note: you will need a basic understanding of the play to get the most out of these notes as they are designed for people who have read and understand the key concepts of the play.

Note: although the grammar is not completely correct, it is designed that way so it translates well into an audio file, the full stops at the end of titles make the recorder system put a break between the titles and content rather than running both together.

Note: This is also my first resource I have uploaded!
