Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Pygmalion Shaw wrote the part of Eliza Doolittle an east end dona with an apron and three orange and red ostrich feathers for Mrs Patrick Campbell with whom he had a passionate but unconsummated affair From the outset the play was a sensational success although Shaw irritated by its popularity at the expense of his artistic intentions dismissed it as a potboiler The Pygmalion of legend falls in love with his perfect female statue and persuades Venus to bring her to life so that he can marry her But Shaw radically reworks Ovid s tale to give it a feminist slant while Higgins teaches Eliza to speak and act like a duchess she also asserts her independence adamantly refusing to be his creation
