Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

The ever-quotable Oscar Wilde once said, "Anybody can make history. Only a great man can write it." From his outsize celebrity in Victorian London to his authorship of fiction, drama and poetry that uniquely captured his era, it's fair to say that Wilde succeeded on both counts.

5.0 von 5 Sternen From Humor to Horror 30. August 2010
Von Eric Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Part humorous fable, part mystery, part gothic suspense, "The Picture of Dorian Gray" is another example of the late 1800s fascination with the soul, the senses, and science.

Dorian Gray is a mere teen when the story begins, the muse of a local gifted artist, who paints Dorian's portrait in hopes of capturing his youth and beauty. Dorian's charm is also appreciated by Lord Henry, a rascally fellow, able to twist phrases and morals with his sly tongue. His winsome ways captivate Dorian, but Dorian soon finds himself pulled in the direction of a beautiful actress as well. These two loves tear Dorian in different directions, resulting in unexpected turns of events that send him down a road of sin and pleasure, though never with the rewards of true happiness. As his actions lead to even more drastic results, he finds himself fearing every shadow and questioning his own sanity.

These events do not occur in a vacuum. With Dorian's sliding moral state, the portrait of his beauty begins reflecting the dark decay in his soul. Even as his own face refuses to age or show corruption, the painting becomes uglier by the day. Dorian is both fascinated and appalled by this. When, at last, he faces the consequences of his own selfish choices, he makes one final decision to try to destroy the evidence.

I laughed aloud at many parts, particularly early in the book, then found the tone growing eerie and black. What a thought-provoking book! And one that kept my attention throughout. This is no glossed-over portrait of Mr. Gray, but a grisly depiction of evil--even when it masquerades in a cloak of civility.

Oscar Wilde joined other writers of his day--H.G. Wells, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Joseph Conrad--in wrestling with concepts of the soul and the senses in the light of scientific discoveries. What about the conscience? Where did theology and psychology fit in? What about free will? In the last few pages, Wilde paints his own sobering portrait of a man who has tried to live as though the soul and senses have no effect on each other.

This now ranks as one of my favorite classic novels. The results of Dorian Gray's experiment serve as a mirror for all those who consider themselves holy, heathen, or hypocrite.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Who wants to look young forever? 15. September 2014
Von bernie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Basil, who up until now was a mediocre painter after meeting Dorian Gray a young Adonis, was inspired to create a masterpiece of which he puts himself into. Against Basil's wishes, Dorian Gray is influenced by Basil's friend Lord Henry. Dorian looks at his portrait and realizes that while the portrait will stay young forever, he will grow old; so Dorian makes a wish that if only he could stay young forever and the portrait can age.

At first Dorian does not realize his wishes been granted. He falls in love with a beautiful young actress who is every woman that Shakespeare ever wrote about. But once again due to Lord Henry's influence, he realizes that she's just a common girl.

Starting with absent-minded acts Dorian slowly sinks into debauchery. And with every new act his picture becomes more grotesque while Dorian stays is young and as innocent looking as the day his picture was painted.
What will become of Dorian?
What will become of Dorian's painting?
What would you do if you were Dorian?

Oscar Wilde paints a picture himself as he describes Dorian Gray's dilemma. And we as readers travel with Dorian as each decision is made. In some places in the story Oscar Wilde seems to drag on and on with detail; however we find that this detail is necessary to set the next scene.

Oscar Wilde himself led a risky life that lead to a jail sentence; is attitudes can be seen in the dialogues in this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Where has Oscar Wilde been all my life?! 19. Juni 2013
Von Cindy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I received this book as a birthday gift. I had never read any of Oscar Wilde's works and, given he lived in the 1800s, I was nervous I wouldn't understand much, but I was completely blown away! The Picture of Dorian Gray is the first story and it is now my favorite novel. Such a brilliant man, that Oscar Wilde. In the book you'll find a bit of a biography of the author and you'll realize that although he was a narcissistic and troubled man, he was brilliant. His personal philosophies shine through in this works and he makes me think about subjects I never gave much thought. The only thing I didn't like about this edition was that it looks like a bible. It looks purple in the picture but the copy I have is burgundy with gold and silver designs. It's a heavy and thick book; the pages are gold colored, too. Everywhere I went people thought I was reading the bible.
