Inspector Calls - Who do you think was the most responsible for Eva's suicide?

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Inspector Calls Who do you think was the most responsible for Eva's suicide? I think that all of the people that had met Eva had a responsibility in Eva's suicide but I think there are some more than others. Mr. Birling was the one to knock Eva the first time you could say she was knocked off her horse, but she managed to get back up on it again. I think Mr. Birling was right to fire Eva because she was causing trouble and making women protest to try and get the pay increased by up to around 15% which was a lot of money to ask especially from thousands of workers. I think Mr. Birling should have considered that she was a good worker before sacking her. Sheila was the second one to kick Eva off the horse and I think this was Eva's final blow because everything seemed to go down hill from then on. ...read more.

Middle

Eric went out looking for sex and came across Eva, he got sex. I have some sympathy for Eric because he was young and drunk. The fact that he comes back for more is what makes me less sympathetic towards him, he forces himself on Eva, which puts pressure on Eva and Eva doesn't really try to force him off but if she did she probably would have got beaten up. Then once they sort of start dating Eric gives Eva money but then when Eric's drunk he tells her that the money was stolen and Eva doesn't want to take that money, then Eva finds out she is pregnant and tells Eric that she is and Eric does the honest thing and asks for her hand in marriage which shows that he is willing to sacrifice something which I think is quite decent of him. Eva rejects him because he is too young for her, Eric offers her money but Eva doesn't want stolen money. ...read more.

Conclusion

Eva herself should have known that suicide was not the answer to her problems and she killed her child which I think is just selfish and she should have thought it through before taking the life of her child. I also think that she could have really avoided some of things that happened like in Mr Birling's case just go along with the strike, she didn't have to be a ring leader. If I was to put the people I have mentioned in an order I would probably put: 1. Sheila 2. Eric 3. Eva 4. Mrs Birling 5. Mr Birling 6. Gerald The reason I think Sheila was the most responsible was because she had know real reason to fire Eva because Eva didn't do anything wrong. I also think that the way she used her power to get Eva sacked was just wrong and she should have thought a lot more before actually opening her mouth and getting angry at Eva because she looked better in the dress than she did.
