My Favourite Literary Character

   My favourite literary character is Elisa Doolittle. Elisa is the main character of Bernard Shaw's famous comedy "Pygmalion". Elisa is eighteen, she has a strong Cockney accent. She comes from the lowest social level. She makes money by selling flowers in the streets of London.
   Once Elisa meets Henry Higgins, a professor of phonetics. Elisa and Higgins begin to work hard at the girl's pronunciation and manners. Higgins makes an agreement with his friend Pickering that he will pass Elisa off as a duchess in six months.
   At last, before six months are over, she is well prepared to be introduced into society. Pickering and Higgins take her to a dinner party and the Queens dancing party.
   Everything is good and professor wins his bet. But what is to become of poor girl now when the game is over? She has acquired some culture and she wants to do useful work. Anyway, she can't sell flowers in the streets again. She wants her share of respect and independence.
   I like Elisa's quick wit, sense of humour and moral strength. The character of this girl shows how much force and talent lies undeveloped in common people. Elisa, thank to her mind and abilities, reaches a lot in life. And eventually people get to appreciate her.

Мой любимый литературный персонаж

   Мой любимый литературный персонаж — Элиза Дулитл. Элиза — главная героиня известной комедии Бернарда Шоу "Пигмалион". Элизе 18 лет, она говорит с сильным акцентом кокни. По происхождению она из нижних слоев общества. Она зарабатывает себе на жизнь, продавая цветы на улицах Лондона.
   Однажды Элиза встречает Генри Хиггинса, профессора фонетики. Элиза и Хиггинс усердно работают над ее произношением и манерами. Хиггинс заключает пари с Пикерингом, что он сможет выдать Элизу за герцогиню через 6 месяцев.
   В конце концов, меньше чем через 6 месяцев она готова быть представленной в обществе. Пикеринг и Хиггинс водят Элизу на обед и на королевский бал.
   Все идет хорошо, и профессор выигрывает пари. Но что будет с бедной девушкой после того, как игра закончена? Она выросла до определенного культурного уровня и хочет заниматься полезным делом. В любом случае, она не может опять продавать цветы на улицах. Ей нужны уважение и независимость.
   Мне нравится в Элизе живость ума, чувство юмора и моральная сила. Образ этой девушки показывает, как много сил и таланта остаются неразвитыми в простых людях. Благодаря уму и способностям Элиза добивается многого в жизни. И в результате люди начинают ценить ее.
