Title: "Pygmalion" - Topics: Drama/England; World/England

“What do you mean that my language is improper?” Prior to My Fair Lady was Pygmalion. Fair Eliza’s struggles with English, which according to George Bernard Shaw “is not accessible even to Englishmen,” come alive in the 1938 film version of Shaw’s play. The film, which won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, provides great discussion topics, from perceptions of social status based on accent, to gender equality.

It is so helpful to have so many resources on one website. Sources that used to take hours of hunting on line now take little time to locate. In the event of a change of plans or if I need sub plans for the day, my work is done.
