  • Il ritratto di Dorian Gray By Oscar Wilde Raffaele Calzini Masolino d'Amico, Dorian Gray, un giovane di straordinaria bellezza, si fatto fare un ritratto da un pittore Ossessionato dalla paura della vecchiaia, ottiene, con un sortilegio, che ogni segno che il tempo dovrebbe lasciare sul suo viso, compaia invece solo sul ritratto Avido di piacere, si abbandona agli eccessi pi sfrenati, mantenendo intatta la freschezza e la perfezione del suo viDorian Gray, un giovane di straordinaria bellezza, si fatto fare un ritratto da un pittore Ossessionato dalla paura della vecchiaia, ottiene, con un sortilegio, che ogni segno che il tempo dovrebbe lasciare sul suo viso, compaia invece solo sul ritratto Avido di piacere, si abbandona agli eccessi pi sfrenati, mantenendo intatta la freschezza e la perfezione del suo viso Poich Hallward, il pittore, gli rimprovera tanta vergogna, lo uccide A questo punto il ritratto diventa per Dorian un atto d accusa e in un impeto di disperazione lo squarcia con una pugnalata Ma lui a cadere morto il ritratto torna a raffigurare il giovane bello e puro di un tempo e a terra giace un vecchio segnato dal vizio.

    1. Arguably literature s greatest study of shallowness, vanity, casual cruelty and hedonistic selfishness, Wilde lays it down here with ABSOLUTE PERFECTION This was my first experience in reading Oscar Wilde and the man s gift for prose and dialogue is magical This story read somewhat like a dark, corrupted Jane Austen in that the writing was snappy and pleasant on the ear, but the feeling it left you with was one of hopelessness and despair The level of cynicism and societal disregard that Wilde s [...]

    2. This book reminded me why I hate classics.Like Frankenstein, it starts out with a great premise what if a portrait bore the brunt of age and sin, while the person remained in the flush of youth How would that person feel as they watched a constant reminder of their true nature develop And like Frankenstein, it gets completely bogged down in uninteresting details and takes forever to get to the interesting bits Seriously, in a 230 page novel, the portrait doesn t even start to change until 100 pa [...]

    3. Oh Dorian Oh Dorian.When I first read this book in the fruitless years of my youth I was excited, overwhelmed and a blank slate as Dorian is, upon his first encounter with Lord Henry easily molded, persuaded, influenced, etc.Certain Wildisms Wildeisms would take my breath away Would become my mottos to believe in To follow To live.Lines like It is silly of you, for there is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about But beauty, real beauty, ends [...]

    4. So I read all of Wilde s plays a couple of years ago but for some reason I never read this at the time This is probably the number one most requested book for me to read So I read it Are ya happy now ARE YA I really rather enjoyed this Well, obviously I mean, did you honestly think I wasn t going to like The Picture of Dorian Gray It s by Oscar Wilde for fuck s sake His prose is like spilled honey flowing across a wooden table and waterfalling onto the floor beneath The viscous liquid flowing sl [...]

    5. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion It is not he who is revealed by the painter it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals himself The reason I will not exhibit this picture is that I am afraid that I have shown in it the secret of my own soul And so begins this tale of art and sin I would highly recommend first watching the movie Wilde starring the wonderful Stephen Fry, it is a film which takes the audience on a journey through the life of the tormented writer, f [...]

    6. Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic This book is dark unicorns and rainbows It s chocolate ice cream with cherries on top It s a pizza with everything on it It s a fluffy kitten It s ice cold lemonade on a hot summer day It is absolutely marvellous.I couldn t help but include this in my review Keanu Reeves is the real life Dorian Gray.

    7. I finished reading this last night, and afterwards I spent an entire hour staring into space so I could contemplate over the majesty of this work It left me speechless This book is exquisite it is an investigation into the human soul, the power of vanity and the problems of living a life with not a single consequence for your actions It s truly powerful stuff It begins with a simple realisation, and perhaps an obvious one But, for Dorian it is completely life changing He realises that beauty is [...]

    8. The Picture of Dorian Gray is a hard book to review After reading such eloquent, beautiful, and rich writing, I am at a loss for how to command my comparatively paltry ability to use words to express how I felt about this book.Forgive me as I go back to AP English for a few moments I asked myself what were the themes of this novel Here is my list IdentityExperience BeautyThe triumph on senses over reasonAccountabilityI will attempt to build my review, in part, around the discussion of these them [...]

    9. This is the first time I ve read this classic book.but I ve loved Oscar Wilde for as long as I can remember There is much to take away from this book Themes exploring shallowness, selfishness, superficiality, hedonism, morality, and flaws of life and being human The dialogue is witty and humorous Oscar Wilde had great insights on beauty.I love this quote But beauty, real beauty, ends where an intellectual expression begins Intellect is in itself a mode of exaggeration, and destroys the harmony o [...]

    10. This is another of those books I ve been meaning to read for ages and kept putting off Although I ve a particularly good reason for putting this one off, as a very good friend of mine, who died a couple of years ago, spoke to me about this book and I was worried that might make it hard to read for quite other reasons.He said that when he read this book as a young man it made him certain that he was not homosexual Now, that in itself was enough to make me curious about the book This is a book tha [...]

    11. A face without a heart , so said Shakespeare in Hamlet, but it applies to the portrait of Dorian Gray even better When the young gentleman Dorian Gray from a wealthy aristocratic family in Victorian England, has his picture completed something is missing, Basil Hallward, the painter senses it and insists that no one sees his greatest work, except a few people The witty Lord Henry Wotton, Dorian s soon to be best friend seems amused, a shy artist All three are fascinated by the painting, discussi [...]

    12. I don t know what I was quite expecting here It s a psychological horror story with a lot of comic relief, in the form of the endless witty paradoxes After page 30 you are thinking that if Lord Henry makes just one crack you re going to knock his monocle off his family crest and grind it underfoot Oscar often clearly thinks he s being hilarious with his wit with a capital W and maybe it s me, but Oscar Wilde often sounds like a parody of Oscar Wilde, like in the Monty Python sketchWHISTLER Your [...]

    13. Funny how books are moulded by the circumstances in which they have been read.In Dorian Gray, some of its aspects are very easy to grasp and do not need great explanations For example, Wilde s epigrammatic style is so very distinct I have had a lot of fun selecting quotes and peppered with them my reading progress.His sentences are like small diamonds They can be held and set against the light and moved around so that their different facets will shine and reflect the world around them They are a [...]

    14. Some day, when you are old and wrinkled and ugly, when thought has seared your forehead with its lines, and passion branded your lips with its hideous fires, you will feel it, you will feel it terribly So, I wanted 2018 to be the year that I try to get back into classics In the past, I ve found some of them daunting to read, or just too boring to ever feel invested in But I feel like The Picture of Dorian Gray was the perfect start.Beautiful art by saku chann on TumblrI originally was going to g [...]

    15. The Picture of Dorian Gray could also be titled A Portrait of the Human Soul, for in his dark and tragic commentary Oscar Wilde spares no liberties in discussing morality, religion, society and the depths of the human condition It is a deeply moving and inspired novel centering around the defining power of art It is not an easy novel to read with its dark elements For in paying heed to Dorian Gray s demise one is drawn into a reflection of their own spiritual condition.For those who have no idea [...]

    16. Possessing eternal youth and beauty produces exactly the same effect as sentencing a man to life without the possibility of parole Both have nothing to lose and morals disappear before the desire for immediate self gratification in all things And so it is with Dorian Gray It s a moral story so eventually his evil catches up with him and he dies, as does the criminal Is Oscar Wilde saying that it is man s essential nature, to be so internally psychopathic and selfish that so long as he can keep h [...]

    17. Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic Under the influence of a captivating aristocrat, Dorian Gray sells his soul in exchange for prolonged youth and vitality Part of the deal is that a full length portrait of Dorian will age and record his sins, whereas he remains unblemished.Picking one quote from this book was like being asked to read just one book for the rest of your life nigh on impossible I hadn t even thought about how difficult it would be until Tes insta [...]

    18. My dear Jordan said Lord Rayner expansively, as the butler discreetly closed the door behind his young visitor Really, it is too good to see you again And what brings you to Cambridge Oh, this and that, said the lad, flinging himself casually onto a priceless Ikea divan By the way, has there been some mistake in the casting I thought I was female Well, since we re doing Dorian Gray, I hoped you would have no objection to reversing your gender, said his host And besides, is there anything quite a [...]

    19. From Dorian s emotional movements, Lord Henry s advice, or Basil Hallward s soulfulness, it is possible for one to take a deeper look into himself and to make new solutions to social behavior There are many auspicious conclusions to be drawn The work is original, and the work shines in anarchist accents within this authenticity.It is a work to be considered, questioned and scrutinizedZitat ich habe die Weiber, die einen lieben, satt Weiber, die einen hassen, sind viel interessanter.

    20. 3.5 This reminded me of why I like classics Some parts dragged on too long but I enjoyed it overall

    22. Perfect, exquisite, everything that was promised to you This one has quite a high degree of FOLLOW THROUGH Gray is majestic, about the superficial love for oneself It poses many questions, and as a book of ideas, perhaps the most innovatory in the latter part of the 19th century of them all, it is exactly what a reader wants Absolute flawlessness, like the young Dorian himself It s ESSENTIAL Indeed, the pinnacle of Gay Lit Comes to us in the rare tradition of too good to be true, actually lives [...]

    23. I am not sure whether this novel is so perfect I should wish Wilde had written , or whether this novel is so perfect I should be grateful it stands alone.Wilde was an aesthete This is a work of aestheticism Hardly The Picture of Dorian Gray is a gripping and sincere morality tale, told with beauty, and about beauty, but ultimately driven by the quasi Gothic nightmare that rests beneath all that is beautiful in the book and all that is said about the pursuit of beauty by its primary characters.Wi [...]

    24. If no one wrote a novel after this one it would be the greatest story ever told and I would be ok with that.

    25. What would you do to gain eternal youth, to be beautiful and young and highly respected forever and ever In the first instance, you should think long and longer about such a yearning, because in the end, it is not external beauty which counts it is the beauty of your soul A lesson Dorian Gray has to learn in one of the most gruesome ways you could imagine The Picture of Dorian Gray is an absolute masterpiece, which is a compliment I rarely pay a book Oscar Wilde can easily be considered to be a [...]

    26. Great story Imagine being immortal Wow To still be around after hundreds of years One thing is true, you would know what really happened in the past Let s face it you would have witnessed something first hand And today you would read the modern history books and maybe, just maybeLol All history is just what it means His Story History was predominantly written by men Left brain and in a draconian way History to me, whomever wrote it, is theory, opinion and conjecture How one perceives history is [...]
