Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 129 mm. Brand New Book. Pygmalion both delighted and scandalized its first audiences in 1914. A brilliantly witty reworking of the classical tale of the sculptor Pygmalion, 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. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780141439501
