A Day With Dorian Gray

“Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic.”
 
“To be really mediaeval one should have no body. To be really modern one should have no soul. To be really Greek one should have no clothes.”
 
~ Oscar Wilde, The Picture Of Dorian Gray

THIS IS SUCH A GREAT COINCIDENCE BECAUSE ME AND @hijabikebabi talked sort of about a Picture of Dorian Gray and AHHHHHh I'M LOOKING AT THIS COLLECTION AND SEEING HER COMMENT ON IT AHAHAHAH
 
Well, this is such a beautiful set. Although, I haven't read A Picture of Dorian Gray (I've been putting it off for so long i don't know why) I am compelled to just begin okay.

Ok so I first saw this collection 7 months ago and commented and ever since then you have made me want to read this. Well I finally got round to it and now I can really appreciate this collection! The gothic like pieces are just perfect, you can really see that the inspiration has come from Oscar Wilde! I really liked the idea of the book and it started off really well but I found that in the middle it got slightly tedious. Like the sentences were so long and winded that I got really confused and most of the things that were being said were irrelevant in my opinion. Anyway, I quite liked the book and I love this collection :D

@hijabikebabi Thanks a lot, I am happy you enjoy them! If you want to start reading Oscar Wilde, I think The picture of Dorian Gray would be nice indeed as it's the only 'real' book he has written, the others are more like poems, plays and essays like The Importance of Beinf Earnest or The Soul of Man under Socialism.

@celine-roux-laurent Thank you! Happy you like it!
 
@rosesred Thank you so much dear! Yes I read the book two years ago I think and I definitely recommend it! I absolutely loved it; the story is about the young Dorian Gray who comes to London where everybody is fascinated by his beauty so he can do whatever he wants and lives the life of a hedonist. But as he doesn't want his beauty to fade he sells his soul and now a picture of himself ages instead of him... and this is where the tragedy begins! I also recommend this movie about Dorain Gray with Ben Barnes :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorian_Gray_%282009_film%29

This is a really cool collection. The items are all very unique and interesting. I haven't read the book yet, but this collection makes me wonder where the book is about. Did you read the book & what did you think of it if so? xo
