    Though many scholars may harshly criticize My Fair Lady for not adhering to Bernard Shaw’s intentions for Pygmalion, it is my conviction that the musical’s additions to his play should be celebrated, not castigated.

  • Existentialism In The Outsiders

    Truth ts very often stranger than fiction, and it is true but strange that my three favorite books are called “The Outsiders”. Chances are you did not escape high school without a reading of S. E Hinton’s “The Outsiders.” This bittersweet tale of borderline blue-collar youth struggling to survive in a bleak urban environment is haunting and strange.

Although both highlight the importance of phonetics and the teacher-student relationship that Henry and Eliza share, the alterations of the characters in the movie make it highly unrealistic. Henry…
