Birling refers to girls as being “cheap labour” and Sheila objects and tells her father that this is a foolish thing to say. The inspector agrees with what Sheila has to say to her father and he adds “in fact, I’ve thought that it would do us all a bit of good...dingy back bedrooms” the message the inspector is giving is that in society not everyone has the “luxury” lifestyle and sometimes we should look out for people in the community we live in, and help them. Priestly shows us family life is important and that people should look out for each other however they still should understand if a member of the family has done wrong they should try overprotect them otherwise they will not learn from their mistakes.” and now there isn’t...into this unpleasant business” Above all these “being responsible” plays the biggest part and each of themes set in the play have a link with being responsible in some way.

She was selfish and heartless leaving Eva to give up on herself. Eva had that little bit of hope left going to the organisation, but Mrs B turns away her helping hand. Maybe Arthur had triggered it off but Mrs B could have sorted out things out if she understood why Eva had used the name Birling. What makes you feel more anger for Sybil is that she thinks it wasn't her fault at all: she had no guilt whatsoever. Although I think it would be unfair to blame just Mrs Birling entirely, as each character played a part to the death of Eva smith.
informing the inspector that he is a public figure and a magistrate, more used to handing out punishment rather than being questioned himself by the police. Mr and Mrs Birling are both angry with the inspector; they are social climbers and believe that they are beyond criticism. Personally, I believe that Mrs Birling is the most to blame for Eva Smiths death. As you can survive changing and loosing jobs, and broken relationships, but Mrs Birling refused her charitable support, which would make the difference to Eva between a new start at life, or death.
With regards to how the inspector addresses each candidate in the house that he wishes to interrogate, he interrogates each character very differently. For example, for the inspector to question a character like Mr Birling he has to first remind the man of social conduct and how to behave in an interview. He has to almost break down Mr Birling’s conscience... ... middle of paper ... ...an siphon the key points to make further enquiries upon. He also considers that morals can be taught quicker if the situation is less busy. Some characters are reluctant to participate with the inspector.

After all, she was the person who decided to kill herself, she could have tried for another job, she could have accepted the money from Eric and she could have made him responsible for the baby, when it came. In conclusion, it would be unfair to put the blame onto one person, when each and every one of them helped contribute to Evas' miserable end to life. It may be more accurate to blame society, her class, and the time in which she lived. No real crime has been committed in this play, but I believe that the Birling family should share the moral responsibility for this young woman's pitiful suicide.
In the men’s eyes the women are inferior to them. So they are to ignorant to realize that the case is solved by the women who notice the small trifles. For the men’s actions the women decide not to share their information to protect a friend, with this irony the men will never solve this insignificant murder case in the story.

Priestly manipulates our sense of what we expect in a policeman/investigator as he makes Inspector Goole act as how we would expect and policeman/investigator to behave. The range of his question often surprise the others as he makes judgement about their characters which they feel or unusual about in the police inspector.
This gives the impression that he cares deeply for his daughter, and is a good father. The phrase 'hopeful lady of my heart' suggests he has hope for her to be something special.

But even in his explanation it is hard to understand what he means when he says things like, “Difference in hue and hair is old.” (p.7) Unfortunately with his constant use of euphemism and ambiguity, Coates makes it hard for a reader to grasp the full knowledge of the book and to be empathetic towards it. His blunt candor only allows for so much insight into a world that few know. Without explanation, it is hard to understand his emotion, and the ambiguity does not make it any
When the family learn about the death of Eva, Mr Birling is the first to be questioned by the inspector. He resists questions from the inspector; "I can't think they can be of any great consequence." He also uses his authority to try and avoid interrogation; "Perhaps I'd ought to warn you [Chief Constable Colonel Roberts] is an old friend of mine" demonstrating his power and showing he is an upper class man. I don't think Eva Smiths death affected Mr Birling much because he didn't really know her. He does remember her as being a; "Lively, good looking girlâ€¦ a good worker tooâ€¦ ready for promotion."
