Henry Higgins comes across as an obnoxious and arrogant person in George Bernard Shaws play Pygmalion He is one of the more peculiar characters that I have read about He treats everyone else in the play in his own particular way His relationship with Eliza Doolittle is by far the most interesting throughout the play Higgins treats Eliza as though she wasnt a person at all In Act IV of the play Higgins and Eliza are talking about how the bet was over and what their futures were going to be now that his experiment was over Higgins shows some of his lack of caring by saying How the devil do I know whats to become of you What does it matter what becomes of you Eliza seems to be truly hurt by this remark I find this to be an extremely rude and viscous thing to say Higgins is a grown man and he should have respect for other peoples feelings especially Eliza Higgins relationship with his mother is also kind of awkward and unique at the same time He treats her in different ways throughout his conversations with her He acts like a little kid in some ways He likes to shock her with some of his mind games He got quite a rise out of her in Act III when he was talking to her about a woman Eliza who was coming over to see her that day She is a common flower girl I picked her off the kerbstone Mrs Higgins responds a little surprised and angered with And invited her to my at-home Higgins failed to mention that Eliza was his phonetic experiment and that he had helped Eliza clean up after he picked her up off the corner Higgins also treats Mrs Pearce almost as though she were a slave to him He never asks her to do something nicely He always gives her direct orders
