With her father's death and the humanization process commencing, Emily is also being pitied by the townspeople; something that they could not bring themselves to do before. Up until her father's death, some of the townspeople viewed Emily as an, "obligation" rather than a fellow neighbor. Others viewed her as a very powerful woman who lived in a big house and had her father running her life. Emily never had to pay taxes, which made the townspeople see her as an inhumane person. The people of the town felt like they could never truly pity her because it is impossible to show compassion to an artificial individual.
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."

The story begins when the mysterious Inspector Goole calls unexpectedly on the prosperous Birling family, his startling revelations not only shatter the very foundations of their lives but challenge us all to examine our own actions which lead to consciences. Firstly, it must be remembered that the Birling Family are guilty of no actual crime, although all have contributed to the downfall of a particular person due to their particular attitudes and beliefs. Therefore it could be said that Eva Smith was simply a victim of her class and time. The idea of the play , and particularly the role of the inspector is to try to bring the Birling family to understand that they have a moral responsibility for the death of Eva Smith, if not a legal one. This point is very significant and is the basis of the entire play, to grasp it is imperative to the understanding of the play, without this, an analysis of who is responsible would be far more difficult.
Franz’s mother Julie was similar; although she didn’t grow up in poverty, she also worked to support the family, leaving Franz with a governess.

Prior to Paul’s hiring, there was a family like atmosphere with great employee-management relations, and little direct supervision needed. In order to improve the production and efficiency of his department, Paul relegated the responsibility of improving production and efficiency to the supervisors. If they could not do this then they would be fired, or their bonuses withheld. As a result, the supervisors got labeled as the “bad guys” because of the pressure they were forced to put on the production employees to change their ways. However, this pressure was ineffective and only caused relations between them to worsen.

Antigone had to endure the loss of both her brothers, and while that in itself may have come along in everyday life, one of her brothers was deemed to have abandoned the state of his origin, and was not allowed to be buried properly. While trying to rectify this injustice, as she felt was necessary to do by honor, she was sentenced to death, and because of this, her family and betrothed bound themselves to her by committing suicide as well. This is a story of not only tragedy, but also extreme passion and honor, which is not found in today’s world. We can all learn something from this story, because none of us could even hope to display the dedication that Antigone did to her brother even in death.
Throughout Priestley’s play, ‘An inspector calls’, a main theme runs about responsibility and differentiation between classes. Each character is accountable of doing something that brought about the death of Eva smith. All the characters contribute to her death in one way or the other, and all of them are at fault for the death of Eva Smith, however, I am going to examine who is most to blame for her death. Mr Birling is a contributing factor to why Eva Smith killed herself. He is responsible in one way because he was not able to ‘accept any responsibility’, and this shows he is to partly to blame because he isn’t tricking anyone, but he is taking the two generations and backing up differences between them according to how responsibilities are taken.
