  • "Pygmalion is one of Shaw's most accessible and entertaining plays; its characters-particularly Professor Higgins and his pupil Eliza Doolittle-have become household names. The fame of Pygmalion has been both enhanced and undermined by the musical adaptation My Fair Lady. This is a fresh, up to date and accessibly written critical edition for literature and drama students. An authoritative and academically rigorous edition, edited by the Shaw Estate and international Shaw expert, Len Connolly. Students will find a wealth of information to guide their studies: an extended introduction exploring theatrical and historical context, critical reactions to Pygmalion, background on the author, stage history and character analysis. It also includes Shaw's original Preface, the Pygmalion and Galatea myth (Ovid) and Shaw's rehearsal notes for the 1914 premiere. The play itself contains numerous notes and explanations throughout to aid the student's understanding. -- Publisher description."

  • "Henry Higgins, a professor of phonetics, teaches Eliza Doolittle, a London flowergirl, how to speak correctly and be a lady and then falls in love with her."
  • "Henry Higgins is the cause of Liza Doolittle's metamorphosis from a "draggle-tailed guttersnipe" to a "dutchess" by improving her manner, speech, and style."@en
  • "Pygmalion both delighted and scandalized its first audiences in 1914. A brilliantly witty reworking of the classical tale of the sculptor who falls in love with his perfect female statue, it is also a barbed attack on the British class system and a statement of Shaw's feminist views. In Shaw's hands, the phoneticist Henry Higgins is the Pygmalion figure who believes he can transform Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, into a duchess at ease in polite society. The one thing he overlooks is that his 'creation' has a mind of her own. This is the definitive text produced under the editorial supervision of Dan H. Laurence, with an illuminating introduction by Nicholas Grene, discussing the language and politics of the play. Also included in this volume is Shaw's preface, as well as his 'sequel' written for the first publication in 1916, to rebut public demand for a more conventionally romantic ending."@en
