Oscar Wilde

The Picture Of Dorian Gray

The Picture of Dorian Gray was first published as a serial in Lippencott’s Monthly Magazine, and the publishers thought it would so offend readers that they removed nearly 500 words without Wilde’s approval. Wilde soon expanded it and republished it as a novel, including a short preface justifying his art. Even though his contemporaries considered it so offensive that some argued for his prosecution, Dorian Gray today survives as a classic philosophical novel that explores themes of aestheticism and double lives. Couched in Wilde’s trademark cutting wit, Dorian Gray is still being adapted today, with Dorian and his smoldering portrait remaining cultural touchstones.

    Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing
    Nadezhda Smirnovahat Zitat gemachtvor 5 Jahren
    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. The moment one sits down to think, one becomes all nose, or all forehead, or something horrid. Look at the successful men in any of the learned professions. How perfectly hideous they are!
    Maxim Makarchukhat Zitat gemachtvor 5 Jahren
    It is the spectator, and not life, that art really mirrors.
