Samantha Shapter ENG 101-13 Essay #3 4/4/11 I see “Buzzards” by Lee Zacharias as a memoir; she even alludes to it herself: “It’s a rare family that cheers to learn one of its members is writing a memoir” (263). Zacharias uses her knowledge of buzzards to deal with her father’s death. Although she shows she has extensive knowledge of the birds, I found it overwhelming and boring to read paragraph after paragraph about the frightening birds. Losing a parent myself, I can identify with her methods of coping, but I found myself more interested in reading about her father than the buzzards. However, though the central topic of her essay may be boring, Zacharias is an excellent writer.

Its just I cant help thinking about this girl-destroying her life so horribly.’ This shows Sheila feels commiseration and sensitivity towards Eva and her death which comes across as genuine regret when she realises she could be linked to her suicide. Mr Birling interrupts her questioning by becoming even more aggressive when trying to defend her daughter. The phrase ‘why the devil do you want to go upsetting a child like that’ that he uses shows he is more concerned that his daughter has been affected by feelings of guilt and shame for what they might have done to Eva Smith. He doesn’t realise the depth of the familys involvement and still feels able to be bitter and outspoken towards the inspector. However, this does impact the inspector at all because he continues his questioning with Sheila further.
