Sheila and Eric (Part 2)
In this lesson, we will explore how Priestley presents the character of Eric Birling. We will explore how our sympathies towards Eric develop in the play, as well as revisiting contextual information about traditional gender roles in the Edwardian era. This lesson makes reference to the topics of suicide and violence, as well as sexual exploitation and violence. If these issues are sensitive for you, we recommend checking with a trusted adult before starting, or doing the lesson with a trusted adult nearby.
