An Inspector Calls

Any ideas on a Mrs Birling analysis?

Bar the general points such as part of the adult generation, social class, ironic charity work etc.

Sybil Birling is married to Arthur. Mother of Sheila and Eric. Priestley has her "about fifty, a rather cold woman," and--significantly--her husband's "social superior." Sybil is, like her husband, a woman of some public influecnce, sitting on charity organizations and having been married two years ago to the Lord Mayor. She is an icily impressive woman, arguably the only one of all the Birlings to almost completely resist the Inspector's attempts to make her realize her responsibilities.
