Carol Ann Duffy writes poetry, which reveal disturbing aspects of human behaviour and the human nature. I will be writing about these three poems, 'Salome', 'Before you were mine', and 'Stealing'. I will be going into deeper meanings with these poems showing what is revealed and how it is revealed. Te three poems all have more than one theme. In Salome, the theme is revenge, and it also has a strong sexual element. The main idea in the text of before you were mine is a sexual element, but one between the mother and daughter which is very disturbing....
men.

In my opinion the speaker speaks quite estuary language, for example, "flogged it", "bust of Shakespeare", "booze and fags", "beater or blighter", and "ma". These are all slang terms from the three poems, and show the speaker is speaking of quite a low-average register of language. By the speaker's socialect, we can tell that she could be from a working class or middle class background.

To conclude, I think the poems are well structured, have much deeper meanings than most people realise, and that they do go into the morally wrong aspects of human nature.

In this essay, I will... In this essay, I will be looking at how Miller presents the themes of truth and justice in 'The Crucible'. To achieve this, I will examine a variety of characters including John Proctor because Miller uses his characters actions to convey the themes. Before I conclude, I will compare Miller's work to other plays. 'The Crucible', by Arthur Miller, is not an accurate historical account, but rather an accurate portrayal of the Salem witch trials of 1692 in Massachusetts. Miller makes minor changes to the events that occurred during the trials such as the genuine names of the victims, the total number of people that were executed, and the correct ages of the characters. During the time of the witch trials, people follow their strict Puritan beliefs. They believe in hard work, prayer, Bible study, and introspection. Miller tells of how the Salem minister catches several young girls dancing in the forest. This is a sign that the girls are practicing evil, because dancing is not permitted in the Puritan faith. The witch trials were a time of much grief, because many innocent people died without proof and guilt ruined many lives. Miller tells in detail about the witch trials and how the townspeople accept guilt of "witches" without evidence. People use witchcraft to gain vengeance. One of the most important themes in Arthur Miller's 'The Crucible' is that good, mercy, and justice do not always triumph over evil. Miller uses his character John Proctor to represent justice in his work, 'The Crucible'. John Proctor opposes authority in Miller's play. He is portrayed as the protagonist. From the general feel of the scene, we can gather that the common room of Proctor's house is cold, empty and unwelcoming. This parallels with the relationship between John and Elizabeth. There's is a great amount of tension between the pair, and they idly make chit-chat at the table, as they feel they need to: "Proctor: Pray now for a good summer. Elizabeth: Aye" It should be noted that it is Proctor who is trying to make conversation; Elizabeth is spoiling his attempts with one-word answers. Proctor is feeling frustrated because Elizabeth is not acknowledging that Proctor is trying his hardest to repair the relationship. He is forever claiming his desire to please Elizabeth: "I mean to please you Elizabeth." - Proctor The audience would get frustrated with Elizabeth for not forgiving him. Although Proctor is guilty for the false relationship with Abigail, he is going below his stature to earn trust and respect from Elizabeth. This shows the personal integrity of John Proctor. He loathes hypocrisy because they are testifying to something that is not true. Proctor has strong moral principles with one exception. Hale asks him to recite the Ten Commandments and he forgets one of them, which in his case is the most important, "Thou shalt not commit adultery." He denies all accusations of his affair with Abigail until the trial. He then admits to the affair in order to save his name and his wife. His confession shows that his principles are stronger than anything else is. Though John Proctor tries to do the right thing in the end, his death shows that justice does not always triumph over evil. This also shows that Miller presents themes through the actions of the characters. Judge Danforth is a prominent character in the play, and one of main persecutors of those accused of witchcraft. He seems a hard man, and one not willing to change his views. He is the main judge we see in the play, and is in charge of hearing all evidence against people, and judging them. The simple fact that he does not let any one of those accused off the charges unless they confess creates the impression that he is a hard man, with very little sympathy or any kinder human traits. However, during the play, there are times when he seems to be gentler with some people. The first mention of Danforth is in Act three. Miller includes notes about many of the characters in the stage directions, and those of Danforth give an instant impression about him. 'Danforth is a grave man in his sixties, of some humour and sophistication, that does not, however interfere with an exact loyalty to his position and his cause.' He brings religion into his arguments a lot, mainly criticising those who do not attend church regularly. He seems to have more respect for those who are what he thinks of as 'good Christians.' Danforth: 'You are in all respects a gospel Christian?' Procter: 'I am, sir' Danforth: 'Such a Christian that will not come to church but once a month?' Danforth: '"¦Plough on Sunday?' In this last quote, Danforth seems disbelieving that a man who considered himself a Christian could plough on a Sunday. While nowadays this would be acceptable, in the days Miller was writing about, a man generally could not call himself a Christian unless he adopted a rather strict way of life, and obeyed the rigid rules of the church. Judge Danforth wants to respect Christians, and while using an apparent lack of Christianity against the people accused of witchcraft, he seems to admire the use of it to accuse them, just. When the girls are questioned, they frequently protest 'I am with God' or 'I am with God now.' Danforth seems to believe them when they say this. He seems to want to believe they are 'with God' although he refuses to believe it about any accused. This seems quite hypocritical. However, if he believes that any people accused were 'with God' and announced them innocent, he would be accusing the girls of lying. This would mean he did not believe that they were with God. Therefore, Danforth feels he has to choose someone to believe and stick to their point of view. Believing the girls, would certainly be a popular decision, at least at first, as the public would be keen to 'carry out God's work' and condemn who they thought were involved in witchcraft. He shows some kind human traits, although the select conditions under which he does this, makes it seem a lot more false. When he is talking to Goody Proctor, he seems kind and respectful. When he dies this, she is already a condemned woman, and this may be for his own gain, as he is trying to get Procter to confess. This clearly shows that justice does not always triumph over evil.

The Lonely Characters in "Of...The Lonely Characters in "Of Mice and Men" Of Mice and Men is set during the 1930s about the time of the American depression. It focuses upon two men who are raising money to buy and live on a small farm of their dreams. They work on the ranches to earn the money to do this. These men are George Milton and Lennie Small. George looks after Lennie as he is very forgetful and slow. Lennie usually ends up getting the both of them 'canned' this means thrown off the ranch as he tends to do stupid things that get them both in trouble. The ranches are lonely places as the men who work on them often have little or no family. The men upon the ranches play simple games when they're not in the fields working in order to pass the time. George is described in the book as he and Lennie are walking, it describes well by saying "The first man was small and quick, dark of face, with restless eyes and sharp, strong features Every part of him was defined; small, strong hands, slender arms, a thin and bony nose." The book then continues to describe Lennie it reads "Behind him walked his opposite, a huge man, shapeless of face, with large, pale eyes, with wide, sloping shoulders; and he walked heavily, dragging his feet a little, the way a bear drags his paws." George sometimes gets annoyed with Lennie, although he loves him and cares deeply for him. An example of this love and care is "Lennie, for Gods sake don't drink so much." Lennie continued to snort into the pool. The small man leaned over and shook him by the shoulder. "Lennie. You gonna be sick like you was last night." George misses having someone to love him. You can tell this as he says "Guys like us, that work on the ranches, are the loneliest guys in the world. They got no family. They don't belong no place." I believe that this shows a slight glimpse of George's real feelings, though I think that he is too afraid to disclose his true feelings for the sake of Lennie. Crooks is also a ranch worker. He takes care of the horses and gets them ready in the morning for working in the fields. Crooks is a black man with a crooked back, he got his crooked back after being kicked in the back by a horse. I think that his name is meant to signify his crooked back. He lives away from the other ranch workers in a small room in the barn. Reading books alone in his room is how he passes time when not working. He isn't allowed in the bunkhouse where the other men sleep as he is a black man. So it is easy to see he is very lonely as most of the men won't even speak to him. The only time he can come into the bunkhouse is on Christmas day when to boss gives them a case of whisky. "A guy goes nuts if he ain't got nobody. Don't make a difference who the guy is, long's he's with you"¦ I tell ya a guy gets too lonely, an' he gets sick." I believe that this defiantly proves that Crooks is one of the lonely characters in the book. Curley is another lonely character on the ranch his father is the boss. This is the only reason that the other men tolerate him and I believe that he knows this. Although he is fortunate to have a wife unlike the other men, he is still lonely as they have an extremely poor relationship. Curley is unpopular with the men on the ranch, he is a moody person, small and he has a thing against big people. Curley has a wife, she tells Lennie that he gets in a mood when she speaks to other men, and that he treats her bad all the time. She also tells Lennie "I get Lonely. You can talk to people, but I can't talk to anybody but Curley. Else he gets mad. How'd you like not to talk to anybody?" Curley's wife feels very lonely, she can't talk to any of the other men on the ranch except for Curley, or he gets mad with her. There are no other women to socialise with on the ranch. She speaks of running away and that nobody would ever see her again if she did. This shows that she is an extremely lonely character on the ranch. Another way that you can tell she is a lonely character is that she is never referred to by name, this shows nobody has taken time to even discover her name. Therefore it must be assumed that the men see her as an object rather than a person. Curley and she don't have a good relationship at all you know this, as they never have a conversation during the story. Also she married him to escape her mother and believes that he is strong as a person and that he has power over the workers on the ranch when it is his father who owns the ranch. There is another lonely character on the ranch, Candy, he is and old man who lost one of his hands in a machine accident, so now he sweeps up in the yard. Candy sweeps while the other men are out in the fields. Candy has an old dog but the book doesn't give you the dogs name Candy just calls her 'girl'. The dog is Candy's only companion whilst the other men are out in the fields. During the story the dog is shot due her old age, after she is shot he tells George "I ought to of shot that dog myself, I shouldn't ought to of let no stranger shoot my dog." Another worker on the ranch shot the dog. Candy is one of the older workers on the ranch and realises that he is too old to live out his dreams now. Also he has no idea what he is going to do when he is 'canned'. He has no hopes for the future and no real friends therefore he is one of the loneliest characters on the ranch. George faces a similar predicament, George knows that he must be the one too kill Lennie, because if anyone else does it they will do it inhumanly. This is why he shoots Lennie while talking to him as to distract him, where as Curley would "shoot for his guts." Although all of the characters are lonely I feel that these characters are the loneliest. Georges saying sums up all of the ranch workers loneliness by saying " Guys like us, that work on the ranches, are the loneliest guys in the world."

The play is set in the...The play is set in the Birling's house; as it is a safe place where life is secure and sheltered. The inspector takes the illusion of their life away and shows the Birlings what they previously prefer to overlook, the horrors and troubles of the real world. The play is set in 1912 but was written in 1945 after the Second World War. In the play there is lots of dramatic irony, which to an extent it relies on. Mr Birling flippantly brushes of ideas people have about a war in sight, dismissing them as "silly little war scares". He also comments on the worker's strikes and feels confident that they've "passed the worst of it." We as the audience know that since 1912 there have been two Worlds Wars, the likes of which the world had never experienced and in the 1920's there were huge worker's strikes, which sent the country into chaos. The Georgian period in which they lived was a time of wealth and prosperity for the middle and upper classes and relative relaxation and security. Mr Birling proudly boasts about the progress that has been made, "auto-mobiles making headway" and a ship, "the Titanic" which is about to set sail and will make "New York in five days "“ and every luxury "“ and unsinkable, absolutely unsinkable." Again as the audience we know Mr Birling has misplaced his confidences and the terrible end that "unsinkable" ship came to when she met her nemesis and lies still and silent at the bottom of the frigid North Atlantic. In 1912 there was no welfare state in Britain, and poor people like Eva Smith often depended on charity organizations. Wealthy people such as Mrs Birling usually controlled these organizations. Mrs Birling would have worked for the charity out of her desire to be seen as charitable rather than out of a sense of responsibility and concern for those less fortunate than her self. Also during this period the upper class, represented by the Birlings and Gerald ruled the country, owning all the main business, with no thoughts accept for them selves, which lead to consequences for the working class, the "Smiths", represented by Eva Smith. The inspector comes into the play, to try and find out who is the most responsible for the death of Eva Smith death and to try and make them understand their responsibility to others. All the characters in the play had some connection with Eva Smith, which contributed towards her unpleasant death. Mr Birling was the first to contribute towards Eva's downfall. At one time he employed her in one of his "machine shops for over a year". He admits that she was a good worker, and she was even going to receive a promotion, but after the holidays in August, she and a group of girls came back to work and "decided to ask for more money" so they were averaging at about "twenty-five shillings a week" instead of "twenty-two shillings and six". Soon the strike came to an end as they had been on holiday and had little money left. Mr Birling let the strikers' comeback to work for him, apart from the "five ringleaders who started the trouble", including Eva Smith, they had to go. After being sacked by Mr Birling, Eva Smith after a time of unemployment managed to get a job at a good quality shop, called "Millwards". There she encountered the wrath of Sheila Birling. Shelia had gone to Millwards one day to try something on, her mother and the shop assistant had been against it, but she insisted. When Shelia tried it on she knew they had been right and it didn't suit her, and out of the corner of her eye she saw Eva Smith, the girl who had brought the dress up for her to try on, smiling, as if thinking "Doesn't she look awful." Shelia was upset and embarrassed and spoke rudely to her. She then went "to the manager of Millwards" and told him if Eva Smith wasn't sacked she'd never "go near the place again and would persuade" her mother to close the account. Eva Smith, through no fault of her own is now unemployed again. As many girls did, she decided to change her name to Daisy Renton, and make a fresh start. As there was no other work, and was in desperate need money. She turned to prostitution, as many women of the working class had to. One day Gerald met her at the Palace music hall, where he had gone to get a drink, and is "a favorite haunt of women of the town." He saw Eva, or Daisy being bothered by Alderman Meggarty, a prominent member of society. He recognizes that she is young and pretty not like the other women. Gerald decided to help the girl and managed to distract Meggarty enough, by saying the manager needed to see him, to get the girl away. He got to know her and then set her up at a friend of his' house and kept her as his mistress. It was a mutual benefit, as she needed money and food, which he provided. Gerald liked the idea that he was the most important person in her life, but after a while go bored and had to go of on a business trip and told her she had to go as his friend was coming back. Eva Smith knew that what she had with Gerald would not last and she was just a convenience to him. "She went away" by herself "for about two months. To some seaside place", so she could be alone to try and make her affair with Gerald "last longer" and savour the memories of their time together. As she could again get no work and in urgently need of money she again turned to prostitution and worked in the palace bar. This is where she met Eric Birling and his puerile behaviour and lack of responsibility. She was pretty, not like the other "fat old tarts", so he decided to buy her a few drink, although he was already inebriated. Later that night he insisted on going back to her lodgings and we are lead to believe that when he was there he forced himself upon her, using his physical strength and power over her. They met again a few times and Eva told Eric that she was pregnant with his child. Eva insisted, that she did not want to marry him as she saw him for what he was, a spoilt child and treated him like he was "a kid." Eric then offered her financial support, which she also refused as she had found out that the money he used was stolen and "refused to take anymore". Eva Smith was now desperate and turned to the only possible hope she had, "the Brumley Women's Charity Organization", where she encountered Mrs Birling and her preconception. Mrs Birling was a "prominent member" of the charity with lots of "influence". Eva, lied at first, when she was informing the committee of her case, pretend she was married, and called Mrs Birling. After a while Mrs Birling managed to get the truth from her, but was still not convinced as she had already lied and was prejudice towards her as she had used the name Birling, so she used her influence in the committee to cause Eva's case to be rejected. Eva now had no hope, "the Brumley Women's Charity Organization" had been her last resort and she had been rejected. She must have though the whole world was against her and wanted to end her life. Before the inspector's arrival Mr Birling has been giving young Gerald and Eric some advise about how to act and gives his limited view of responsibility. He says "a man has to make his own way in life "“ has to look after himself "“ and his family too, of course when he has one "“ and so long as he does he won't come to much harm." This sums up exactly what Mr Birling's attitudes on responsibility is, only to care for yourself, and those close to you, no mater what the consequences are for those around you. He is a capitalist and does not see how socialism would benefit everyone, he criticizes the way some "cranks talk and write", as though "everyone has to look after everybody else, as if we were all mixed up together like bees in a hive "“ community and all that nonsense." When the inspector first arrives and they have established that Eva was dismissed from Mr Birlings work about "18-mounths ago" and the inspector tells Mr Birling that he started the turn of events that led to her horrific death, Mr Birling is appalled and amazed that anyone would suggest such a prospect, and he wouldn't accept any responsibility for her death as he thinks "if we were all responsible for everything that happened to everyone we'd had everything that happened to everybody, we'd had anything to do with, it would be very awkward" and there is every excuse for what he did, and "it turned out unfortunately". He feels that it is his "duty to keep labour cost down" and doesn't consider the workers as real people with feelings with a right to try and get the highest possible price for their services, as Birling tries to get the highest possible prices for the merchandise he sells. Perhaps Mr Birling feels this way as he is a self made man and has had to work his way up from scratch and feels if he can do it others can as well and they don't deserve any compensations as none was given to him. Shelia immediately felt pathos for Eva when she had heard what had happened to her, and when she realizes she had something to do with her downfall is distraught. Before Shelia finds out what is happening she is worried by the inspectors tone, as he is talking as though they are responsible. When she realizes how she helped cause Eva's demise which eventually lead to her death she immediately takes responsibility for her actions and thinks what she did "was a mean thing to do" and perhaps "spoilt everything for her." At the time when she had caused Eva to be dismissed from Millwards "it didn't seen to be anything very terrible" but she still "felt rotten about it at the time and now" she now she knows what has happened to Eva she "feels even worse", with a thick layer of guilt on lying on her conscience. She knows her previous actions were foolish and spiteful, and knows she is partly to blame for Eva's death and is "desperately sorry." Gerald takes the same attitude towards responsibility as Mr Birling and thinks that Mr Birling was perfectly justified in discharging Eva, for creating chaos and willing other workers to stand up for their rights to receive more pay for their work, as a trouble maker is no good, however hard they usually work. He reassures Mr Birling, that he was in the right assuring him that "Crofts Limited" would "have done the same thing" and that Mr Birling had nothing to do with her unfortunate death and it was "what happened to her since she left Mr Birlings work that is important." Gerald also used her as a mistress and then disregarded her when he got bored, he never loved her, but he enjoyed the way that he was the "most important thing in her life" and had no regard for her feelings when their affair had to come to an end. Mrs Birling takes the same attitude towards responsibility as her husband and Gerald. Although Mrs Birling had dismissed Eva's case from the committee she still thinks that Eva "only had herself to blame" and "in spite of what had happened to the girl since" she considers she did her duty. When she discovered that Eva knew whom the father of her child was Mrs Birling advised her, that "it was her business to make him responsible." She feels she was "perfectly justified in advising" the "committee not to allow her claim for assistance" and "can accept no blame" for anything that happened to Eva afterwards. Mrs Birling is also good at passing the blame onto someone else. In this case she passes it onto the father of the child as she does not suspect, or even consider that it could be anyone she knew or a member of her family. Eric feels he same way about his prior actions as Shelia, now he knows that his actions helped to cause a fatality. He also uses Eva, as the end for a drunken evening. He doesn't not even consider the thought of loving her but "she was pretty and a good sport," so Eric used Eva with no thought for her feelings or the consequences of his actions. He is upset about what has happened and is ashamed of his actions, but also blames his mother as Eva went to her to protect him and was turned away, he feels that his mother "killed her" and "his child" her "own grandchild" she "killed them both". The inspector's role in the play is to try and get the characters to see the errors of their way of they life and to accept responsibly for their actions and the consequences they cause. Mr Birling ironically tells the inspector that he wasn't "asked to come here to talk to" him "about responsibilities." As this is exactly what the inspector's role in the play is to remind them that "public" people "have responsibilities, as well as privileges." In the play, there are many different techniques used to add to the dramatic effect. In the play, there is only one theme; this keeps the audiences attention and stops them getting side tracked with other plots. The inspector builds up the tension well by only allowing one character see the photograph at a time, and lays traps, which they all fall into. In particular the inspector sets a trap for Mrs Birling, when he asks her if she is not to blame for Eva's death then who is and she enthusiastically lays the blame on the young man who is the father of Eva's unborn child and tells the inspector to "find this young man and then make him confess in public his responsibility." She is happy to dismiss any responsibility she may have and pass it onto someone, she thinks is far away from her family and her. Almost immediately we find out the father is Eric and she has implicated her son as being entirely responsible for the death of Eva Smith. The inspector scrutinizes one line of enquiry at a time, so again the audience does not lose track of the play and its storyline. The inspector also controls the behaviour and actions of the other characters, deciding if they can leave or not. He undermines Mr Birling's authority, when Eric ask if he can have a drink before he begins to tell his story of the events which he was involved in with Eva, Mr Birling says no, but is quickly contradicted by the inspector who says that "he needs a drink now just to see him through." The inspector seems to be omniscient, but actually makes all the characters confess to their crimes. Perhaps the inspector is a supernatural agent for the conscience and the name Goole makes him appear spooky and other worldly. Maybe the inspector has foreseen a suicide about to happen and if the Birlings have a change of heart it could be prevented, but the chance is missed and the suicide occurs. In the text their are many clues which hint that the inspector is not really from the police and in the end the Birlings and Gerald manage to pick up on this, but some of them try dismiss it as a joke. The name Goole sounds like a ghoul, which is an evil demon, that eats the flesh of the dead, or it can be used metaphorically meaning a person obsessed by, or profits by, another's death. When the inspector has left, he is said by Birling to have exploited Eva's death, to frighten the "victims" of the alleged practical joke. But there are also hints that he is good, perhaps a messenger from God, as he says, "we are members of one body" like we say in the Eucharist service, reminding us that everyone is the same in Gods eyes. It does not mater whether the inspector is supposed to be good or evil, or what he really is, as the importance of his role is in what he says. The inspector altered Shelia and Eric's views and makes them aware of the responsibility they have for others. Mr and Mrs Birling and Gerald refuse to take any responsibility for their actions and when the inspector has left expect life to carry on as before, believing that the inspector was a hoax, they represent the past and how the world is in desperate need for change. The end of the play suggests hope of the future as Shelia and Eric who represent the younger generation have learned to accept responsibility and that all actions have consequences. At the end of the play the inspector gives his wide view on responsibly, which contrasts with Mr Birling's narrow view on responsibility that he gave at the beginning of the play. Before the inspector departs he leaves the Birlings and Gerald with a thought "One Eva Smith has gone "“ but there are millions and millions and millions of Eva Smiths and John Smiths still left with us, with their lives, their hopes and fears, their suffering and chance of happiness, all intertwined with our lives, and what we think and say and do. We don't live alone. We are members of one body. We are responsible for each other. And I tell you that the time will soon come when, if men will not learn that lesson in fire and blood and anguish." The inspector, in his speech is telling us that things must change and "the Smiths" representing the lower and working class should not be used and abused by "the Birlings" repressenting people of power. He is also referring to the Second World War, as the audience knows, this lesson was learnt through "fire blood and anguish" and can not be allowed to be forgotten. The main theme of the play is responsibility. You must be responsible for other people as well as your own actions, and think of the consequences your actions may cause for others. In the play, there isn't anyone who is fully to blame for the death of Eva Smith. All the characters were involved in some way, which lead to her death and therefore are all equally responsible. The political message in the play is everyone must realise that there are always consequences for one's actions and everyone has a shared moral responsibility. The play was written in 1945 after the war, to present Priestly's views that the world was in desperate need of a change. When the inspector was at the house it symbolizes the Second World War, when everyone started to learn a pulled together for one cause. During that period all people were thrown into the war or working back home to aid the war effort regardless or class and social status. After the war there was a danger that people would recede back into the old ways, where there were prominent social divides and Priestly is trying to remind people how things were and how well they worked. People saw the need for change when the voted for Labour and Clement Attlee in 1945 who stood for a new way of life and change, against Winston Churchill who offered society restarting where it left off. People saw how the war had changed everything, and things would never be the same again as something as horrific as the Second World War could never be forgotten and voted for Labour which resulted in their famous landslide victory of May 1945. An Inspector Calls is an idealist play and is always relevant, as the theme of responsibility is still as germane today as it was a hundred years ago.   

The play is set in the Birling's house; as it is a safe place where life is secure and sheltered. The inspector takes the illusion of their life away and shows the Birlings what they previously prefer to overlook, the horrors and troubles of the real world. The play...
