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 h Tout Le Monde Conna T Le Chef D Uvre D Oscar Wilde Tel Qu Il A T Publi En Volume En Cette Version Diff Re Consid Rablement Du Manuscrit Qu Il Avait Soumis Quelques Mois Plus T T Au Lippincott S Magazine O Le Roman Devait Para Tre En Pr Publication Le Directeur, Par Pruderie, L Avait S Rieusement Rabot , Ce Qui Ne L A Pas Emp Ch De Provoquer Un Premier Soul Vement D Indignation Par La Suite, Wilde A Augment Et Remani Son Roman, Estompant Ses Passages Les Plus Audacieux La Critique Instruisait D J Son Proc S En Immoralit Il A Fallu Attendre Pour Que, En Angleterre, Des Universitaires Rendent Disponible Le Texte Initial, Avant Les Censures Successives C Est Cette Version Que Les Cahiers Rouges Publient Pour La Premi Re Fois En FranceLa Trame Reste Inchang E Dans Le Londres Fin De Si Cle, Le Peintre Basil Hallward Tombe En Adoration Devant Son Mod Le, Le Beau Dorian Gray Leur Chaste Idylle Commence, Troubl E Par L Intervention D Un Vieux Camarade De Hallward, Lord Henry Dandy H Doniste Amoureux Des Bons Mots, Affichant Avec Insolence Son Homosexualit , Il Convainc Dorian De L Importance Capitale De Sa Beaut Un Jour Viendra O La Vieillesse L Aura D Figur Et Plus Personne Ne Le Regardera Horrifi , Dorian Conclut Un Pacte Faustien Avec Le Portrait Que Hallward A Peint De Lui Ce N Est Plus Lui Que Le Temps Ab Mera, Mais L Image Du Tableau Le Portrait De Dorian Gray Non Censur Est Encore Plus D Licieusement D Cadent Et Surtout Plus Ouvertement Homosexuel Le Pouvoir Rotique De Dorian Est Exacerb , Nombre De Phrases Rendent Indubitable Et Intense La Nature Des Sentiments De Hallward Pour Lui On Retrouvera Bien S R Les Saillies Du Spirituel Lord Henry, Notamment Le Fameux De Nos Jours On Sait Le Prix De Tout, Mais On Ne Conna T La Valeur De Rien 18 30.

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 char This book reminded me why I hate classics.

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 lo Oh Dorian Oh Dorian.

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 lo 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 soulAnd 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 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 given moment in time, at least 20% of my brain capacity is perpetually dedicated to making sure I m clever enough, flamboyant enough, petty enough, gay enough, dramatic enough to earn the approval of the ghost of Oscar Wilde 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 a 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 b 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 y 18 30.
