Eliza Doolittle

Satisfactory Essays
Both Eliza Doolittle from Pygmalion and Natalya Stepanovna from The Marriage Proposal are single and argumentative women with a very strong personality, who share very strong similarities but also some differences. Firstly, Eliza and Natalya are considered lower class citizens by the men around them. On one hand, Eliza is sold to Higgins by her father for five pounds, so he can go by a drink. On the other hand, Natalya’s father gets rid of her by allowing her to marry the neighbor, Lomov. Furthermore, both Eliza and Natalya are stubborn. Eliza refuses to let go off Higgins and insists that he teaches her how to speak proper English. Whilst, Natalya does not accept that Lomov says the piece of land is his, nor that his dog is better than hers.
