Pygmalion (Popular Penguin)
|Author:||George Bernard Shaw|
A barbed attack on the British class system, Pygmalion both delighted and scandalised its first audiences in 1914. 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.
