The Greek Myth Pygmalion

Characters in Pygmalion

Work Time

To help keep the characters straight, work with your teacher to create a Characters in Pygmalion chart. Maintain a list of characters and information about them in your Notebook. As you read and discuss the play, you should periodically add information about the characters to your list.

Discuss the following with your classmates.

  • What has happened in the play so far?
  • What is the Flower Girl saying when she first speaks to the Mother: “Ow, eez ye-ooa san, is e? Wal, fewd dan y’ de-ooty bawmz a mather should, eed now bettern to spawl a pore gel’s flahrzn than ran awy athaht pyin. Will ye-oo py me f’them?”
