Extrait

Dorian made no answer, but passed listlessly in front of his picture and turned towards it. When he saw it he drew back, and his cheeks flushed for a moment with pleasure. A look of joy came into his eyes, as if he had recognized himself for the first time. He stood there motionless and in wonder, dimly conscious that Hallward was speaking to him, but not catching the meaning of his words. The sense of his own beauty came on him like a revelation. He had never felt it before. Basil Hallwards's compliments has seemed to him to be merely the charming exaggerations of friendship. He had listened to them, laughed at them, forgotten them. They had not influenced his nature. Then had come Lord Henry Wotton with his strange panegyric on youth, his terrible warning of its brevity. That had stirred him at the time, and now, as he stood gazing at the shadow of his own loveliness, the full reality of the description flashed across him. Yes, there would be a day when his face would be wrinkled and wizen, his eyes dim and colourless, the grace of his figure broken and deformed. The scarlet would pass away from his lips, and the gold steal from his hair. The life that was to make his soul would mar his body. He would become dreadful, hideous, and uncouth.

As he thought of it, a sharp pang of pain struck though him like a knife, and made each delicate fibre of his nature quiver. His eyes deepened into amethyst, and across them came a mist of tears. He felt as is a hand of ice had been laid upon his heart.

'Don't you like it?' cried Hallward at last, stung a little by the lad's silence, not understanding what it meant.

'Of course he likes it,' said Lord Henry. 'Who wouldn't like it? It is one of the greatest things in modern art. I will give you anything you like to ask for it. I must have it.'

'It is not my property, Harry.'

'Whose property is it?'

'Dorian's, of course,' answered the painter.

'He's a very lucky fellow.'

'How sad it is!' murmured Dorian Gary, with his eyes still fixed upon his own portrait. 'How sad it is! I shall grow old, and horrible, and dreadful. It will never be older than this particular day of June...If it were only the other way!

Revue de presse

It seemed to be an impossible task to outdo the former edition of 'Dorian Gray' in the World's Classics series, but Bristow has achieved his goal. The quality of the explanatory notes is, simply, superb, and the introduction is succint but informative, --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Première phrase
The studio was filled with the rich odour of roses, and when the light summer wind stirred amidst the trees of the garden there came through the open door the heavy scent of the lilac, or the more delicate perfume of the pink-flowering thorn. Lire la première page

Above all I think that the idea of ''The Picture of Dorian Gray'' is one of the greatest idea of any writer 'cause we must
realize that there might be so big a difference between the beauty of a masterpiece and what kind of man of merit we're
gonna find in whom made or inspired that masterpiece (or both of them). That artist might have been a very bad person
just like the one who might have given him that kind of feeling's power_
And so in the depths of a beautiful ocean you could discover those bad hideous revelations.
We could think what we want to think about Oscar''people got to be free''and yet who could deny that very profligate
impetuous impertinent carefree youthful red blood into his very nature?
You ought to be that reader!
For the rest you must knock down reading Oscar's writings those no trespassing signs of any bourgeois idiot!

Billy.

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, Basil's friend Lord Henry influences Dorian Gray. 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 actor who is every woman that Shakespeare ever wrote about. 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. Moreover, 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. In addition, 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.

The Picture of Dorian Gray Starring: George Sanders, Hurd Hatfield

16 internautes sur 20 ont trouvé ce commentaire utile  Par BETTONI Ludivine le 25 avril 2002
Format: Broché
Ce livre est simplement un chef d'oeuvre dont on ne peut que se délecter. Il est souvent connu par ouïe dire mais rien ne vaut une vraie lecture. C'est un vrai guide de vie, un écho de Ronsard et du si fameux Carpe diem poursuivit jusqu'à ses limites. L'aspect quelque peu gothique du portrait prenant les signes des péchés du modèle pourra attirer les plus jeunes et les pousser à lire ensuite Dr Jekyll et Mr Hyde. Pour les autres: specialistes de Wilde ou non initiés, ce livre si riche pourra constituer un vrai "bréviaire de la décadence" à lire et relire pour enfin en apprécier toute la profondeur et l'esthétisme si particulier à Wilde.

Remembered seeing an old black and white film version of this on TV as a child and thought I'd try it as I don't normally read things that verge on horror. It's his only novel for adults (I had read some of his children's stories to my children years back but we all found them thoroughly depressing and horribly religious) which is a great shame as his insight into the human psyche is breathtaking as is his ability to characterise human qualities and flaws. Very dark at times but full of Wilde humour, and sharp and witty lines that all deserve to be quotes (and probably are). It's a quick read so brilliant for a breather between two epics.
