Satires and I do not generally get on well. I do not believe that it is because I have a hard time making fun of the follies of humans, I am capable enough of doing so in other works (like in Austen's novels, for example). However, I am perhaps too hopeful. I hope and trust that in the end, the main characters, at the very least, experience some amount of growth. Perhaps that is not what happens in real life, and yet I cannot make myself truly believe so. The ending felt, to me, too much of a joke. There were conversations close to the end that made me expect a much more satisfactory one. One in which, Professor Higgins becomes more mature and like a gentleman, and Eliza realizes her own strength and capabilities grows beyond her station and becomes a dignified lady, perhaps fulfilling her initial wishes to become more independent and do better for herself. But perhaps stubborn men are too pigheaded to change, and perhaps I expected too much of an uneducated flowergirl, and too much of human nature, in general. Of whether the characters truly were faithful and consistent throughout the play, perhaps I am not a reliable judge.
