The Pygmalion myth, most famously told by Ovid in his Metamorphoses, has always fascinated artists. This fascination, due to the erotic potential of the story, resulted in an abundance of patriarchal re-narrations from the Middle Ages to the late 19th century. With the turn of the 20th century, however, the Pygmalion stories gradually changed under the influence of feminist thought and emancipation. The woman created by Pygmalion no longer remained a passive creature but began to resist her master and his male fantasies, sometimes in a subtle way, sometimes in open rebellion. The study at hand focuses on the development of the tale in the Anglo-Saxon literature of the 20th and 21st centuries. The author will analyze some of these modern Pygmalion versions, written by George Bernard Shaw, Carol Ann Duffy and Neil LaBute amongst other significant author

About the Author:

Stefanie Eck was born in Landshut in 1986. In 2006, she enrolled in British Studies, German Literature and European Ethnology at the University of Regensburg, followed by a master's degree in Studies in European Cultures at the University of Konstanz. Due to her fascination with cultures, languages and travelling she spent a lot of time abroad after graduating from high school: As an exchange student she studied at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, and at the Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina. She has also worked in South Africa and Australia. Carol Ann Duffy's poetry collection 'The World's Wife' brought about her interest in the interrelations of Anglo-Saxon literature with antique myth and thus induced the study at hand.
