Use of Irony

Act 3 of Pygmalion

Work Time

Finish reading and annotating act 3 with your triad group starting with “Pickering gasps and sits down.” Focus on places of confusion, references to social class, and vocabulary.

Use these questions to focus your reading and answer them in writing.

  • Why is Mrs. Higgins so annoyed with her son and Pickering?
  • What warning does she give them?
  • How did people at the garden party respond to Liza?
