She once stated that at a funeral she would not let her mother console her, only her grandmother. Yet, the other children are more attached to their mother.

In addition, it seems that Sheila becomes a 'Second Inspector ' towards the end of the play in order to reinforce Priestley 's message. The importance of Sheila is to illustrate the Social Divide in 1912, between the upper-class and the lower-class. The fact that Mr. Birling, who owns "Birling and Company," is a well-known and successful businessman, would suggest that Sheila would like to secure a wealthy husband (Gerald Croft, next heir to the Croft Industries) in order to continue her affluent lifestyle. The Inspector makes Sheila aware of the fact that she mistreated Eva Smith by insisting that she must be dismissed from Milwards. In a flashback Sheila confessed that she had reported her to the staff and said "This girl is very impertinent."

Omission of Jane Fairfax in the movie Comparing the novel Emma and its movie adaptation a striking difference is noticeable. Although most characters are maintained in the adaptation Jane Fairfax is left out. Jane Fairfax is a woman about the age of Emma, who passed most of her life in the company of Colonel Campbell (a friend of her father’s), his wife and his daughter. Colonel Campbell is described as a respectable man who decided to take care of the little girl after the death of her parents.
Another example is the letter addressed to the Crane family, “Didn’t you ever see an idiot child before? Some people just shouldn’t have children should they”? (4) This shows that she is envious of the family because they provide each other with company and they love each other, “ most infatuated young parents she had ever known”. Whereas Miss Strangeworth lives all alone.
She begins by talking about her college experience of how her own professors and fellow students believed and “always portrayed the poor as shiftless, mindless, lazy, dishonest, and unworthy” (Paragraph 5). This experience shocked her because she never grew up materialistic. She brings up the fact that she is the person with the strong and good values that she has today because she grew up in a poor family. In culture, the poor are always being stereotyped.
The reality of the situation was that she had no control over her father’s death. There was nothing or no way that she could have prevented the events that took place.

She wanted people to know that even though something or someone has passed away you can’t stay stuck in the state of depression forever.

Emma Goldman has the ability to realize how women are treated in the unfair society and question the people and the society, which is something that none of the other female characters are able to do. Goldman not only holds speeches about her thoughts, but also points out the sadness of Evelyn Nesbit by saying that "because like all whores you value propriety. You are creature of capitalism, the ethics of which are so totally corrupt and hypocritical that your beauty is no more than the beauty of gold, which is to say false and cold and useless" (Doctorow, 74). Even though Goldman criticizes Evelyn by claiming that "you accepted the conditions in which you found yourself and you triumphed. But what kind of victory has it been?"
The book "To Kill a Mockingbird" describes different classes of people as been rich and poor. People classify themselves differently because some people are in poverty, while some are wealthy. Most wealthy people help the poor, but the main people they help are the Cunningham 's family. They help the Cunningham 's family because they are willing to work and they are hard working. People never help the Ewell 's family because they are rude, lazy, and they waste their money on alcohol.
Then the Misfit says “but it would have been better for all of you, lady, if you hadn’t of reckernized me.” The grandmother is also prideful in the way that she says “You wouldn’t shoot a lady would in.” She didn’t even care for her family; the only person that she really cared about was herself. This was selfish and prideful and even lead to her death, which is symbolic of pride killing you. June Star is prideful when she says “I don’t wanna hold hands with him” and “he reminds me of a pig.”
The daughters statement was clearly just her opinion on her mother passing not with any back up evidence which would of gave the mother a more solid thought on just her passing. So the speaker doesn’t seem so enthusiastic about the way her family judges her value, her worth, or her performance. The mother seems in distress which is also just like a student being graded in school and they don’t meet the standards that are set for them by others. The irony here is that rather than parents mark their children, it is the children and father who is marking her, which is the commonly thought to be the most important figure in the household and family.
