Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Picture of Dorian Gray (Vintage Classics) (Taschenbuch)
As a marvellous tale on the impermanence of beauty, "The Picture of Dorian Gray" is fascinating, sad, inspiring and complete at the same time. A sufficient, well-constructed story provides the basis for a multitude of wonderfully expressed thoughts and aphorisms on morality and beauty, but also on honesty with oneself and the decision between the courage and inconvenience to be "good" on the one hand, and the comfort to only take what can be taken from benevolent fellows on the other hand. This book also shows that in the end of a day or a life, the only thing that matters is one's peace with oneself. To be able to look into the mirror without horror. For these precious thoughts and for the beautiful and witty language of Wilde, this book is worthwhile reading to anyone, I claim.
