George Bernard Shaw

Pygmalion

Penguin Classics

€ 13.95

Definitive text under the editorial supervision of Dan H. Laurence
Introduction by Nicholas Grene
Includes Shaw's preface and his sequel written for first publication in 1916

?Yes, you squashed cabbage leaf ? you incarnate insult to the English language: I could pass you off as the Queen of Sheba?

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.

This is the definitive text under the editorial supervision of Dan H. Laurence, with an illuminating introduction by Nicholas Grene, discussing the language and politics of the play. 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.
