LADY HAMILTON, NELSON’S ENCHANTRESS, AND THE CREATION OF PYGMALION.

 

Dr Jesse Hellman, a psychiatrist from Baltimore, Maryland, USA will consider whether Lady Hamilton and the 1897 play Nelson’s Enchantress, in which Stella Campbell played the leading role, influenced Bernard Shaw to create his most famous play, Pygmalion. In a recent article in SHAW, Dr Hellman describes how Emma Lyon, born in poverty in 1765, as a girl was tutored in the arts and social graces by Charles Greville, a man who regarded her as nothing more than a project. Going to Naples and ambassador Sir William Hamilton, she continued her education and became one of the most famous women in Europe.
