    Arguably literature s greatest study of shallowness, vanity, casual cruelty and hedonistic selfishness, Wilde lays it down here with ABSOLUTE PERFECTION This was my first experience in reading Oscar Wilde and the man s gift for prose and dialogue is magical This story read somewhat like a dark, corrupted Jane Austen in that the writing was snappy and pleasant on the ear, but the feeling it left you with was one of hopelessness and despair The level of cynicism and societal disregard that Wilde s characters display towards humanity is simply staggering Despite the dark or likely because of it this is one of the most engaging, compelling and lyrical pieces of literature I have read The quality of the prose is nothing short masterful I assume most people know the basic outline of the plot, but I will give you a few sentences on it The three main characters are Basil Hallward, Lord Henry Wotton and Dorian Gray Basil Hallward is an artist who after painting a picture of Dorian Gray becomes obsessed with him because ...

    This book reminded me why I hate classics.Like Frankenstein, it starts out with a great premise what if a portrait bore the brunt of age and sin, while the person remained in the flush of youth How would that person feel as they watched a constant reminder of their true nature develop And like Frankenstein, it gets completely bogged down in uninteresting details and takes forever to get to the interesting bits Seriously, in a 230 page novel, the portrait doesn t even start to change until 100 pages in And it s so damn flowery Every time Lord Harry starts talking and believe me, he likes to talk he s so witty Witty witty witty Ahahaha, you re soooooooo worldly wise and charming And entirely cynical You just have a quip for everything, don t you Look, reader, look See Harry See Harry corrupt Dorian Corrupt, Harry, corrupt I actually ended up skimming most of the book I really thought about stopping, but I hoped it would redeem itself by the end It didn t I should have just skipped to the last page ...

    Oh Dorian Oh Dorian.When I first read this book in the fruitless years of my youth I was excited, overwhelmed and a blank slate as Dorian is, upon his first encounter with Lord Henry easily molded, persuaded, influenced, etc.Certain Wildisms Wildeisms would take my breath away Would become my mottos to believe in To follow To live.Lines like It is silly of you, for there is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about But beauty, real beauty, ends where an intellectual expression begins Intellect is in itself a mode of exaggeration, and destroys the harmony of any face If they know nothing of victory, they are at least spared the knowledge of defeat Genius lasts longer than Beauty That accounts for the fact that we all take such pains to over educate ourselves In the wild struggle for existence, we want to have something that endures, and so we fill our minds with rubbish and facts, in the silly hope of keeping our place You know than you think you know, just as you know less than you want to know Re reading this masterpiece and coming upon these highlighted lines was possibly interesting than the book this time Why had I highlighted these lines Do they still mean the same thing to me, as they did ...

    The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion It is not he who is revealed by the painter it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals himself The reason I will not exhibit this picture is that I am afraid that I have shown in it the secret of my own soul And so begins this tale of art and sin I would highly recommend first watching the movie Wilde, a film which takes the audience on a journey through the life of the tormented writer, from the beginnings of his fame to his later incarceration for gross indecency a charge used to imprison individuals when it was impossible to prove sodomy Wilde was sentenced to two years hard labour and died not long after being freed due to health problems gained during those two years Looking at Wilde s story from a twenty first century perspective, it is sad and horrifying to realise this man was indirectly sentenced to death for being gay The hard labour prescribed was carried out in various ways but one of the most common was the treadmill This machine made prisoners walk continuously uphill for hours on end and had many long term effects on people s health.Why do I think it s important to know this Because, as Wilde claims, in every piece of art there is of the artist than anything else And I believe this is especially true of The Picture of Dorian Gray than perhaps any other fictional work I ve read In this novel, Wilde explores the nature of sin, of morality and immorality The homoerotic undert...

    Facts that I know for sure 1 I got this edition because I m a slave to the aesthetics and that s exactly the kind of motive the ghost of Oscar Wilde would approve of2 It s safe to assume that no matter what I m doing, at any gi...

    So I read all of Wilde s plays a couple of years ago but for some reason I never read this at the time This is probably the number one most requested book for me to read So I read it Are ya happy now ARE YA I really rather enjoyed this Well, obviously I mean, did you honestly think I wasn t going to like The Picture of Dorian Gray It s by Oscar Wilde for fuck s sake His prose is like spilled honey flowing across a wooden table and waterfalling onto the floor beneath The viscous liquid flowing slowly over the edge His plot, perfectly paced, moves slowly as we wade deeper and deeper into Dorian Gray s maniacal life Over the edge we go as everything goes wrong, there s death, there s pain, there s long conversations about art We hit the floor as we finish and we see nothing but sweetness amassing around us as we escape from Wilde s prose Putting the book down you see the light has hit the stream and it glows and...

    He grew and enamoured of his own beauty, and interested in the corruption of his own soul I think I must have been about fifteen when I read The Picture of Dorian Gray for the very first time and I was totally blown away by it There was this book, written in such a beautiful way, using such colourful and flowery language and there were those three amazing characters that made me feel and wonder and question their lives and decisions You might say that up until I picked up The Picture of Dorian Gray I was as innocent as Dorian himself I didn t know that there were books like that out there, that there actually existed morally grey characters, corrupted characters, book characters that felt like real people and could make you question their behaviour It was an entirely new world for me and I was totally fascinated by it So I read this book and I savoured every sentence, I devoured its wisdom and got lost in its pages Looking at it in retrospective I think that Oscar Wilde actually was the first writer who didn t only make me love classics but also the first author that ignited my undying love for villains and complex characters And for that I ll always be grateful I don t know how often I read this book by now goodreads your count doesn t even ...

    I finished reading this last night, and afterwards I spent an entire hour staring into space so I could contemplate over the majesty of this work It left me speechless This book is exquisite it is an investigation into the human soul, the power of vanity and the problems of living a life with not a single consequence for your actions It s truly powerful stuff It begins with a simple realisation, and perhaps an obvious one But, for Dorian it is completely life changing He realises that beauty is finite It won t last forever It s like a flower, temporary and splendid So if you re a young man whose appearance is your singular quality, then this is some damn scary news People only want to be with you because you re attractive and charming they want to be near you, and with you, for your looks only So when that goes what do you have left Nothing No friends No love Only age So what do you do How do you retain your singular quality Well, the answer is simple, you copy Doctor Faustus The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus and sell your soul to the devil How sad it is murmured Dorian Gray with his eyes stil...
