JB Priestley is known not only for his plays, which include 'When We Are Married', but also for his novels, one of the best known being 'The Good Companions'.

 

'An Inspector Calls' was written in the 1940s and shows Priestley as a social critic, dealing with the problems in society both in 1912, when the play was set, and also through to the time of writing and beyond.

It also touches on the theme of time, which interested Priestley and can be found in several of his writings.
