  • Description

    Pygmalion is a play, named after the Greek mythological figure, by George Bernard Shaw, written as a satire on the British class system and the gentry.

    Summary of the Book

    When Henry Higgins, a professor of phonetics, bets that he can train a flowergirl named Eliza Doolittle, he might have bitten off more than he could chew. He teaches Eliza about behaving like a lady of high class, and becoming one of the genteels. What follows is comedy of the highest order. Written as a sharp criticism of the British class system and a romantic comedy, this is Bernard Shaw’s best-known work.

    Fine classical reading for english readers ( and well, pretty short too )

    Pygamlion is Shaw's classic play, and his mood and style of writing will allow you to get up only when the book is finished. Its a classic, nothing more to be said-- a fine read for English classic lovers.

    As for this version, the one published by "Pocket Book Classic", as wrongly mentioned on the page, its by Simon and Schuster of US, and the best part is, it doesnt only have the complete unabridged play, but also the historical and cultural context, the Britain of those times, a preface by...

    Words, words and solely words.

    After all, it is Mr. Shaw, that shews you once more what wonders come with being a master at speaking. The personality, character and the person change, with the change in the tones of its tongue. Do they? Ask Miss Doolittle.

    This is a classic text from shaw...and i think that is enough to say of the quality of the book...one will thoroughly enjoy the book for sure...for the speeches alone one would read the book again and again. And now of the quality of pages and binding, all i can say it is everything but disappointing. It is deftly bound and reader friendly...And what to tell about flipkart...it has become the most reliable online shopping point for me for the last several months. It delivers things much befor...
