Language Assignment – Pygmalion as a Fairy Tale, February 28, 2013.

Language Assignment – Pygmalion as a Fairy Tale, February 28, 2013.

This week we have tried to define fairy-tales and compared Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw to a fairy-tale. We have seen snippets of the following movies – Shrek, Ella Enchanted, Tangled, Puss in Boots, Cinderella and have identified fourteen aspects to keep in mind while trying to understand fairy-tales.

  1. Special beginning and/or ending words ~ Once upon a time…and they lived happily ever after.
  2. The triumph of good over evil
  3. The description of characters; most of them painted either black or white. Hence, we have helpless princesses, evil stepmothers etc.
  4. The rich and the poor, the social diagram with the fairy godmother or the evil witch at the topmost rung of the social ladder.
  5. The element of magic and enchantments;  One definitely sees fairies, trolls, elves, goblins.
  6. Universal Truths like  coming of age, hope, family, love and many more.
  7. Great journeys – both figurative and literal.
  8. The damsel in distress and other stereotypes.
  9. Moral Lessons
  10. The perfect world where outcomes of actions are predictable.
  11. A problem that is the often the central conflict in the plot.
  12. Choices made by the central characters and how they affect their lives.
  13. Love, or the idea of it.
  14. Age old discriminations prevalent in the society.

The purpose of going through this exercise is to be able to evaluate Pygmalion as a modern-day fairy-tale. The assignment is due soon after the X- Box performances.

No internet usage required for this assignment, all the aspects mentioned above have been discussed thoroughly in class and students are expected to reflect on the discussion and pen their own opinions.
