An Inspector Calls/Of Mice and Male Comparison
Point 1- Portrayal of Women as Evil Of Mice and Guy- “Her body leaned forward” “Feel ideal aroun’ there an’ see how soft it is.” (Direct Attempt of Closeness and Temptation ultimately causes her failure– ‘Feel’) Inspector Calls- Eva Smith/ Daisy Renton- Lack throughout play. Lack of Clearness on her name “It’s a preferred haunt for women of the town” (Haunt-Evil and Sinister) Prostitutes Concept- Shows women are only for entertainment (brothel houses present in both the books) and procreation (a wed woman).
If a woman is not married she is seen as a an item (a luxury belongings to the them and have no status) Regular visits to the Brothel houses from the Cattle ranch employees. Scriptural Allusions- Eve (Curley’s Better half) discourages the males from getting their Eden (Hopes and Dreams) OMAM- HC- Flappers- Females began to dress more provocatively. More non reusable income prior to crash. Later on, they were shunned away as cash was not commonly available.
IC– HC- Working class single ladies of the time were totally at the clemency (generosity) of wealthy and powerful members of the society. Eva Smith referred to as Eve to lure Gerald far from his Eden- (his marital relationship to Sheila) Actual- Suffragettes- Desperate Ladies (Work) did desperate things to make it through. (Exploitation of the rich) Morality- “They will be taught in blood, fire and distress”- Will lead to guy’s fall of paradise into hell if understandings of society do not alter.
Constantly women’s fault. Lead on to Darwinian Theory Point 2- Women’s Life in Imposed Class Systems Of Mice and Male “Cattle ranch with a bunch of people on it ain’t no location for a woman” Shows class systems of how a male dominated naturalist society conduct what happens and everybody avoids her as they do not wish to get in difficulty with the 2nd greatest character- Curley given that his wife is his possession. A Woman has no place in society- wed (Curley’s Wife) or unmarried (Whorehouse home orkers) Injustice and Hostility Faced due to her Gender HC- Economic Crash- Fluid movement of working men, women were expected to stay at house while the guys make money and in this transient working environment, women did not belong and resulted in an isolation … Inspector Calls “Ladies of that class” (Said by Mrs Birling- Directed to Eva Smith) Believes she is socially and morally superior. “That” recommends abhorrence of the working class Without Mr Birling, Mrs Birling solidarity of her status could not be worked out. Shunning far from helping Eva Smith) Sheila utilizes her status and authority to get Eva sacked from her task at Milwards. How status can impact an individual’s life- Just by “Verbal Command” Sheila can destruct a person’s dreams and ambitions with simply a will. For a raise in pay, Eva Smith (Committed as the ring leader to object about bad pay is made redundant by her action) Big Idea Darwinian Theory- Man’s Predatory Instinctive Nature causes class divide to sustain and often extend.
Curley exercises power over Spouse and can not tolerate her independence. Unrefined images- Curley = Master, Dog= Curley’s Partner. (Can not tolerate pet being off the leash.) Status is necessary in IC as marrying into exact same class is thought about the standard and ideally into greater class for that reason status divide keeps increasing. Welfare of employees is ignored just for wealth. Historic Context- War and Working Class Women– Only if you were poor, anticipated to work. Rich females simply had to get wed.
Point 3- Dreams and Work Of Mice and Guy “Coulda been in the movies. Had great clothing”– Curley’s Other half’s American Dream relates to the dreams of many other Americans in 1930s America throughout the Great Anxiety. It never ever materialises into a real reality. Basing on your own two feet separately- AMERICAN DREAM IDEOLOGY An Inspector Calls- Eva Smith(s) were not permitted to dream as companies strength were higher than labour power. “Lower Expenses and Greater Rates”
