They are not rich but act like an upper class person. WHY SOME OF THE CHARACTERS HAVE POWERS WHILE OTHERS DO NOT. Some characters like Higgins have money but do not have power because he does not have any manners and also lack some good ways to communicate with people. Hes been pushed by the money he has but does not know that there is a limit to what money can buy. Pickering does have power because he's rich and also maintain his social class status. He treats everyone with equality and has respect for all. Eliza Doolittle, now a good looking and sophisticated lady, was previously poor but after the transformation has more power than her phonetic teacher (Higgins). Her power comes from her brilliancy, being educated , in addition to her new social class status.
The Marxist criticism in this story is that the rich are well educated, and more sophisticated than the poor. The poor only spend their time looking for what to survive on. This is shown by Eliza, who has to sell flowers to survive. The Marxist criticism also brought the point that the idea of the social class is natural, meaning God created everyone to be equal in this world. This was displayed by Eliza when she was transformed, she showed that with the proper training anyone can develop their personality.
