Book Description :

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition? includes a glossary and reader?s notes to help the modern reader appreciate Shaw?s wit and cynicism.In this delightful romance about the man too self-centered to fall in love and the woman too unsure of herself to want more out of life than the little she already has, George Bernard Shaw shakes the dust off the Cinderella story and tells it as only he can. Eliza Doolittle, the Cockney flower girl who wants to work in a flower shop, and Henry Higgins, the phoneticist who turns her into a "princess," are no mythological knight and maiden. Instead, even today, they resound with sharp humor and cutting dialogue. Originally published in 1914, Pygmalion invites readers and audience members to examine the roots of social prejudice and the true value of a human being, while also involving them in the improbable lives of Shaw?s one-dimensional, yet endearing characters.

Book Description :

Pygmalion's sculpture, which the gods endowed with life, marks, according to this book, perhaps the first instance in Western art of an image that exists on its own terms, rather than simply imitating something else. Stoichita delivers this image and its avatars from the shadow cast by art that merely replicates reality.

Это история простой цветочницы Элизы Дулиттл, которая решила стать настоящей леди, обратившись за помощью к вздорному и высокомерному профессору лингвистики. Тот берётся научить Элизу правильному произношению и избавиться от её кокни-акцента. Остроумная комедия показывает искусственность различия социальных классов и обнаруживает, что говорить, как леди – не то же самое, что быть ею. Читайте зарубежную литературу в оригинале!

Book Description :

Pygmalion, Heartbreak House, and Saint Joan are widely considered to be three of the most important in the canon of modern British theatre. Pygmalion (1912) was a world-wide smash hit from the time of its première in Vienna 1913 and it has remained popular to this day. Shaw was awarded an Academy Award in 1938 for his screenplay of the film adaptation. It was, of course, later made into the much-loved musical My Fair Lady. Heartbreak House (1917), which was finally performed in 1920 and published in 1921, bares the hallmarks of European modernism and a formal break from Shaw's previous work. A meditation on the war and the resultant decline in European aristocratic culture, it was perhaps staged too soon after the conflict; indeed, it did not have the success of his earlier works, which was likely due to his experimental aesthetics combined with a war-weary audience that sought lighter fare. However, while this contemporary reception was muted, it is now recognised as a modernist masterpiece. Saint Joan (1923) marked Shaw's resurrection and apotheosis. The first major work written of Joan of Arc after her canonization (1920), the play interrogates the origins of European nationalism in the post-war era. Like Pygmalion, it was an immediate world-wide hit and secured Shaw the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1925. Drawing upon the transcripts of Joan's trial, Shaw blended his trademark wit to produce a hybrid genre of comedy and history play. Despite the historical setting, Saint Joan is highly accessible and continues to delight audiences.

Book Description :

We create the characters that people our lives. Although others appear to us to be who they just 'are', there are complicated unconscious psychological processes that lead us to experience people in ways that we ourselves construct. This book analyzes how four pairs of people, central in each other's lives, 'create' one another. It demonstrates how each of us is like a theater director, casting others into roles on our stage, even as others are casting us into their dramas.

Book Description :

In Pygmalion, Shaw presents the classical story of a professor who transforms a girl of the lower class into an elegant creature, who then falls in love with him—unfortunately in love, that is. Set in Bulgaria, Arms and the Man satirizes romantic attitudes about love and war. Raina, the heroine, falls in love with a cowardly, chocolate-loving enemy soldier during an unnamed war. After the war, her fiance challenges her new admirer to a duel, loses heart, and proposes to the maid instead.

Book Description :

This enchanting tale of Eliza Doolittle's transformation from Cockney flower girl into elegant lady under the guidance of cantankerous linguist Henry Higgins has been a hit with audiences since it was first performed in 1913. The play skillfully blends social satire, philosophical wit, a heated battle of the sexes, and what is perhaps the greatest platonic romance ever committed to paper. Pygmalion's musical incarnation, My Fair Lady, remains a Broadway staple. The original play is actually funnier than the musical, and its story and characters are more fully developed. The play is also much easier and less expensive for acting companies to produce. The only reason Pygmalion is not performed more often is its ponderous length: almost three hours, extended by intermissions. This seamless abridgment trims the excess from G. B. Shaw's often-verbose script while retaining all of its wit and charm. The result is a leaner, livelier Pygmalion which is less demanding of performers and more entertaining for their audiences. The cast has been reduced to twelve roles (4M, 6F, 2 either), with some doubling possible. The royalty-free script lends itself to modest-budget productions and is easily adapted as a staged reading. Pygmalion, like fine wine, gets better with age. This artful adaptation by an award-winning playwright makes Shaw's classic accessible to the widest possible audience.

iii Preface The following is a map of this document. Chapters 1,2 --A psychological model of creative thought, forming the basis for the PYGMALION design principles. Chapter 3 --Other projects which adhere to some of the same principles. Chapters 4,5 --The PYGMALION programming environment in detail. Chapter 6 --Examples of PYGMALION programs and data structures. Chapter 7 --Conclusions and suggestions for the future. This paper places equal emphasis oil presenting a psychological model of thought and using the model in a computer environment. Readers interested in aspects of creative thoug·ht which can be assisted by a computer should read chapters I and 2. Readers interested in how the PYGMALION system attempts to stimulate creative thought should look at chapter 6 (mostly pictures) to get the flavor, then read chapters 4 and 5. The works of others which deal with the same aspects are described in chapter 3. Chapter 7 suggests areas for future exploration. Thorough readers will read the chapters in order. Chapter 6 and 4-A through 4-D are a minimal set for readers in a hurry. There are three parts to this report.

Book Description :

"One of George Bernard Shaw's best-known plays, Pygmalion was a rousing success on the London and New York stages, an entertaining motion picture and a great hit with its musical version, My Fair Lady. An updated and considerably revised version of the ancient Greek legend of Pygmalion and Galatea, the 20th-century story pokes fun at the antiquated British class system. In Shaw's clever adaptation, Professor Henry Higgins, a linguistic expert, takes on a bet that he can transform an awkward cockney flower seller into a refined young lady simply by polishing her manners and changing the way she speaks. In the process of convincing society that his creation is a mysterious royal figure, the Professor also falls in love with his elegant handiwork.The irresistible theme of the emerging butterfly, together with Shaw's brilliant dialogue and splendid skills as a playwright, has made Pygmalion one of the most popular comedies in the English language. A staple of college drama courses, it is still widely performed. "
