"The Picture of Dorian Gray" (1945). There have also been other versions. Its a story about a man who sacrificed his soul to remain young. It's his painting that ages.
Yes! Oscar Wilde, the author of The Picture of Dorian Gray, was suspected of being gay for Lord Alfred Douglas, and Dorian was used as evidence against him in court. The book …is often treated as a semi-autobiography for Oscar, because Oscar is very similar to Dorian Gray, and Douglas is very similar to Henry. Since homosexuality was very much frowned upon in the Victorian Era, Oscar Wilde's only option for expressing himself was through literature. Underlying homosexual tensions are found between Basil and Dorian, and Dorian and Lord Henry. Basil doesn't act out on his desired physically, but his worship through art makes it apparent. Lord Henry, on the other hand, is very decadent in thought, but because he is so old, he can't do much of what he advises Dorian to do. He wants Dorian to revel in the decadent lifestyle while he is still young. In the Lippincott edition of Dorian, there are several more explicit chapters that reveal homosexual behavior amongst the characters. I can't even name heterosexual male characters from that novel. Basil was gay, the rest were bisexual. Basil all but says "I love you, Dorian".
there is an allusion to Jack the Ripper, when Dorian murders Basil. There is also an allusion to the Garden of Eden near the beginning with the three men being in a garden. lo…rd henry is like the serpent and dorian is like adam.
Yes, when he stabs the portrait.
In no way is Dorian Grey a vampire. That is a ridiculous idea.
Lord Henry Wotton, Dorian, or age itself are all possibilities.
i will tell u now i didnt even watch it for 10 minutes before i turn it off as it was a chap movie
Dorian destroys the portrait as a resource of redemption of all the sins that he had committed. By destroying his own portrait he finally could destroy his soul which was corr…upted at first by Lord Henry and then by the horrible acts that he made by his own choice.
His own beauty.
