Blog posts about Pygmalion:



What is life but a series of inspired follies? The difficulty is to find them to do. Never lose a chance: it doesn't come every day.

Professor of phonetics Henry Higgins makes a bet that he can train a bedraggled Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, to pass for a duchess at an ambassador's garden party by teaching her to assume a veneer of gentility, the most important element of which, he believes, is impeccable speech. The play is a sharp lampoon of the rigid British class system of the day and a commentary on women's independence. -- Wikipedia
