Pygmalion

Autor George Bernard Shaw
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 16 sep 2021
George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion premiered to audiences in 1913 and was an instant sensation. It introduced Eliza Doolittle as the common flower girl plucked from obscurity by phonetics teacher Henry Higgins, who attempts to elevate her into high society. What follows is a sharp critique on poverty, inequality and the rigid British class system of the Edwardian age, as Eliza gains her independence despite Higgins' indifference and disregard.
This text includes Shaw's original ending: while many have sought to rewrite Pygmalion with a more satisfying conclusion, Shaw rebuffed any rewrites to give a 'happier ending' as 'damnable.' It remains Shaw's most popular play and has produced countless adaptations for stage and screen.

Notă biografică

George Bernard Shaw, born in Dublin in 1856, was essentially shy, yet created the persona of G.B.S., the showman, controversialist, satirist, critic, pundit, wit, intellectual buffoon and dramatist. Commentators brought a new adjective into the English language: Shavian, a term used to embody all his brilliant qualities.

After his arrival in London in 1876 he became an active Socialist and a brilliant platform speaker. He wrote on many social aspects of the day: on Commonsense about the War (1914), How to Settle the Irish Question (1917), and The Intelligent Woman's Guide to Socialism and Capitalism (1928). He undertook his own education at the British Museum and consequently became keenly interested in cultural subjects. Thus his prolific output included music, art and theatre reviews which were collected into several volumes: Music In London 1890-1894 (3 vols., 1931); Pen Portraits and Reviews (1931); and Our Theatres in the Nineties (3 vols., 1931). He wrote five novels and some shorter fiction including The Black Girl in Search of God and some Lesser Tales and Cashel Byron's Profession.

He conducted a strong attack on the London theatre and was closely associated with the intellectual revival of British theatre. His many plays fall into several categories: 'Plays Pleasant'; 'Plays Unpleasant'; comedies, chronicle-plays, 'metabiological Pentateuch' (Back to Methuselah, a series of plays) and 'political extravaganzas'. Shaw died in 1950.
