"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.

I love how he plays with us; telling us that the artist needs to conceal himself but at the same time revealing that all three main characters are a part of him...

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.
Yes there are bad books. He has not seen the grammar of this day and age
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

That's actually true. I read a lot of well written novels that contain 'immoral' content, like mass-murdering (even genocide), incest, polygamy and so on.
