English Literature (AIC) EVA SMITH analysis combined with the silencing of women in the 1900's

EVA SMITHS CHARACTER, ROLE and WHAT SHE SYMBOLYSES

  • Poor
  • Orphan
  • Pregnant woman
  • Unemployed
  • Working class
  • Pretty and young
  • Has no family
  • Is a catalyst for social conscience
  • s a symbol for the having to take responsability for the consequences of all your actions
  • Makes the Birlings realise the deeds that led them to Eva's suicide
  • Embodies the whole of the womens generation as her name Eva comes from "Eve" woman of all woman and "smith" a very common British name representing the whole of the working and poor class people living through horrible moments, shes the representant of ordinary people whom can be destroyed by indifference in Edwardian society.
  • she promps theBirlings to make their confessions by Inspector emotively describing her death
  • She is what AN INSPECTOR CALLS spirals around yet we do not even hear her voice
  • She is a counterpoint to inspector as she remains a symbolic figure 
  • Even though Eva dies a painful death she is the one whom takes the upper hand due to she is the one whom makes the characters unravel whom they truly were.
  • The fact that Eva Smith is presented in such an idealized way makes her an unrealistic character-so much that she has gone through but yet still so superego, so moraly faithful, gracious and forgiving

SILENCE AND REMOVAL OF POWER OF EVA SMITH IN AN INSPECTOR CALLS

    The centrality of the play is truly all about Eva Smith's
