Title: The Picture of Dorian Gray
Author: Oscar Wilde
Date Finished: December 4, 2008
A classic, also made into a film, about a young man, Dorian Gray, who has his portrait painted and is believed to be so beautiful that be becomes and icon of art. When Gray realizes that eventually all beauty fades and people grow old, he pleads that the picture should grow old instead of himself.
The gothic theme throughout is one that I have been reading a lot lately and I seem so many similarities in this as I did other classics of the same time period.
It was a great story with great theme. Be careful what you wish for.
