The reader is given this with a narration of what is occurring in the novel and the characters thoughts are determined by the reader. Plot summary: Attach additional sheet if needed. This is important! The main conflict in the play is created when Henry Higgins and Colonel Pickering, two phonetic experts, bet whether Professor Higgins can transform a low class, flower girl like Eliza Doolittle into a person who can be passed off as a duchess. Following through with the bet, Henry Higgins offers Ms. Doolittle classes in grammar, speech, and etiquette, promising her that she will be suited to own her own flower shop after the regime. With the ambassador's garden party only six months away, Higgins goes to great lengths to ensure that Eliza knows proper manners, and can speak with correct pronunciation of words. His methods of mocking and scolding discourage Eliza, though her desire for social recognition overpower her. A few months before the party, Mr. Higgins invites his mother to his residence in order to display Eliza’s progress. Eliza appears to be a very elite young women, until she begins to speak of the most taboo subjects: the murder of her aunt and drunk behaviors in her family. Continuing with the classes until the day of the garden party, Eliza is ready to amaze the public with her elegance, appearance, and content. Henry Higgins wins the bet by a long shot and Eliza is treated just like royalty. Now that Higgins is satisfied, Eliza gets into an argument with Higgins which results in her leaving his home and fleeing to his mother. Higgins’ mother explains that Eliza’s needs completely flew over the professors’ heads. Higgins was so involved in the bet, meanwhile Eliza was convinced that he was helping her become an owner of her own flower shop by improving her social appearance. In turn, however, Eliza’s speech and behavior make her almost unapproachable and foreign to the middleclass, preventing her from reaching her goal. The play concludes with Eliza declaring her independence from Higgins and Pickering by deciding to marry Freddy, a foolish lower class man, and speaking her final farewells to Higgins.
