Oscar Wilde By OscarWilde Completed

"The Picture of Dorian Gray" tells of a young man named Dorian Gray, the subject of a painting by artist Basil Hallward. Basil is impressed by Dorian's beauty and becomes infatuated with him, believing his beauty is responsible for a new mode in his art. Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, a friend of Basil's, and becomes enthralled by Lord Henry's world view. Espousing a new hedonism, Lord Henry suggests the only things worth pursuing in life are beauty and fulfilment of the senses.

The movie is more interesting than the book because i like watch many pictures
Love how eloquent Wilde's writing is. It makes one believe they have all the time in the world just to observe the faintest of details. If anyone likes spoofs... there's a Fifty Shades of Dorian Gray XD

Wasn't he the same one who made the quote "life imitates art" ? If art was really quite useless, then life wouldn't really imitate it, would it (I'm trying to be deep here lol) ? So you can say not all art is quite useless.

I never been so moved about definition of art, until this one came. And I'm glad I'm reading it. It makes me believe more in my craft.

I love this story so much! It's so dark but also very interesting. I read it for a book report once and the entire class was lost even though it all made sense to me. XD
