Both in its own right and as the basis for the musical My Fair Lady, George Bernard Shaw's Cinderella story Pygmalion has become one of the most popular plays of the twentieth century. Essays in this anthology explore the genesis of the play, its characters, and Shaw's themes and techniques. A final section traces the play's metamorphosis into musical and film productions.
