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.

Dans ce que j'ai apprécié dans ce livre est le style d'Oscar Wilde que je trouve absolument beau avec un anglais très accessible et un génie de l'auteur à décrire si bien des situations complexes. Les dialogues sont superbes...

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.

A good story well written.

In this novel, we can follow the adventures of a young gentleman's first arrival in town in the XIX century's England. There he makes himself two friends: the sarcastic Lord Henry and the well-known artist Basil, who will paint his portrait. The two will change his life forever. Indeed, by making him discover other way of thinking and the stupidity of convention, Lord Henry will lead him to live a life of debauchery, while in result of a foolish wish, his portrait will age and decay instead of him, allowing him to live every single one of his without the fear of consequences (the portrait takes malicious features instead of him).

I read the first half of the book last year and had to stop because of exams. It's only after seeing the last film adaptation of the book last week that I went back to the book. While the first half of the film is rather truthful, (apart for the addition of some scene of debauchery very well play that are only vaguely mention in the book), the other half makes some important changes to the script. I sincerely prefer the film end which have more action while the book only end by description of Dorian's state of mind, which could become a bit long.
It's still an enjoyable reading, I particularly love Henry and the way he expresses the most cynical opinions about the British society.

Cette note reflète la qualité du livre. C'est tout simplement un régal ! Pour en savoir plus sur la vie de l'auteur, le contexte historique et les mœurs de l'époque. Je le recommande à tous ceux qui sont fan de littérature anglaise.
(note : Etant adolescente, j'ai juste adoré!)

Oscar Wilde, qu'on a tendance à réduire à ses aphorismes et autres citations, montre toute l'étendue de son talent. livraison parfaite et livre remarquable

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.
