Pygmalion and Galatea
Transcript of Pygmalion and Galatea
A Prezi by: Olivia Lubinski
Graphic Organizer: Plot
Exposition: Pygmalion, an artist, decides never to marry. He creates a statue of a woman, so life-like and realistic.
Rising action: Ironically, Pygmalion falls in love with his statue and longs for her to be real.
Why did I choose Prezi?
What Makes it a Myth?
1.) MAGIC- Venus turns Pygmalion's statue into a real life maiden.
Climax: Venus, the goddess of love becomes interested in this man because he is different than all the others that have crossed her path.
Resolution: Pygmalion and Galatea (ironically again) get married with an appearance from Venus and later name their son Paphos, Venus's favorite city.
2.) Gods have human emotions-
Falling Action: Pygmalion is prepared to ask the goddess to find him a maiden like the statue, but instead, Venus turns the statue into his perfect maiden.
Conflict: During the whole story, even though he said he would never get married, Pygmalion was troubled with the fact that he fell in love with a statue.
Well that can't happen!
Venus took extra interest in this man because it was a different kind of love and wanted to answer his prayer.
I chose Prezi for my visual aid because it was all the benefits of a PowerPoint with a fun, interesting twist of animation and transitions.
