The Greek Myth Pygmalion

Act 1 of Pygmalion (Beginning)

Work Time

Form groups of three (triads) to read act 1 of Pygmalion aloud. You will read the text in short sections, taking turns reading each time a different character speaks.

As you read, take note of vocabulary, especially words that might be useful for academic work.

At the end of each section, you will either complete a Quick Write or discuss or both.

  • Read up to the entrance of the Gentleman, which occurs after the Daughter says, “Really, mamma, you might have spared Freddy that” and retreats behind the pillar.
  • Stop to discuss with your group where the play is taking place and what the problems are.
