Pygmalion a humorous yet rather harsh romantic story by GB Shaw in my opinion is a modernized Cinderella story with a twisted yet realistic ending Supporting this would be the rags to riches element Eliza the Cinderella of the story is a poor uneducated flower girl not too far from an under appreciated servant In both cases you know absolutely nothing about the real mother yet there is a parental figure lacking morals The evil stepmother in Cinderella and Mr Doolittle in Pygmalion Elizas father lacks morals when it comes to caring for her or showing it rather He basically sells her to Mr Higgins for a small amount of money which shocks him Higgins Have you no morals man Mr Doolittle Cant afford them governor neither could you if you was as poor as me As for the twist the fairy godmother in Pygmalion isnt some cheery woman its Mr Higgins who makes the magic happen By this I mean that he makes it possible for Eliza to have all the nice clothing to be able to speak proper English and to become the princess everyone thinks of her to be They tell me there has been nothing like her in London p1115 Although Higgins provides material items for Eliza he doesnt provide the emotional support she needs only fulfilling as said before the magic part of being fairy Godmother Pickering on the other hand would play the part of the sweet fairy godmother or what have you Hes always there to keep things in order between Eliza and Higgins and makes her feel like a lady Interestingly enough there is the harsh yet realistic fact that there are indeed two Prince Charming characters in the play Higgins being the man that took a girl that had nothing and gave her the world would be the first simply because he does so much for Eliza and spends so much
