Who was the creator of Dorian Gray?
He kept it in several places throughout the book. At first, it was greatly admired and he loved to look at the perfection of it, and he kept it in public. But as it bega…n to change, he hid it away so that no one could see it, covered up in a locked room.
Yes, when he stabs the portrait.
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.
The Picture of Dorian Gray is approximately 229 pages long. (Barnes and Noble Edition)
In my general opinion this novel presents to as a list of morals. I would prefer one. Beauty is really a gemstone. It is listed among the beautiful things of the life. Yo…u might have it or not. In both cases, it is nearly the same. In the end, after some years of joy and life it becomes equal to both these people. Because, the beauty one day it is, the other it has gone. While what is left in every men's end are the crows and the years and if he is lucky the humanity and the goodness too.
The climax is probably when Dorian kills Basil, and then the resolution is when Dorian stabs his portrait, consequently killing himself.

The color white represent innocence. (Rose white boyhood). Dorian describes his earlier days as rose white because he was innocent back then. He was free of sin.

You cannot escape the consequences of your actions. What ever you get without giving, somebody gives without getting the rules of civilization impact everyone, you cann…ot escape your social responsibility. No man is an island, no matter how much he would like to be A man or woman without a soul, is doomed. Dorian Gray was doomed when he looked at his youthful portrait and cried the words, "If only the picture would grow old and I would remain young; I would give anything, even my soul!" When you forfeit your soul, be prepared for consequences that will be hellish and eternal. Love appears true meaning toward someone else not yours. Its a meaning of compassion toward others and not always about their self but a little encouragement. In the picture of Dorian Gray its about life contradicting itself and a whole other world that has a different meaning of this century now.
"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.
He has been abusing him.
Lord Henry Wotton, Dorian, or age itself are all possibilities.
