The Picture of Dorian Gray. Where do I start? Hedonism? Aestheticism? Oscar Wilde’s genius? I don’t really like reading classics because they’re usually boring, sexist, and all around shallow but The Picture of Dorian Gray is a philosophical account on the selfishness and depravity of beauty and the quest for beauty is. Dorian Gray, the subject of a portrait by artist Basil Howard is enamoured by his beauty and youthfulness in the portrait and wishes that he were to stay the same while the portrait ages. Dorian Gray meets  Lord Henry Wotton through Basil Howard and begins a life of hedonism, staying exactly the same as when the portrait was  painted. •”He grew more and more enamoured of his own beauty, more and more interested in the corruption of his own soul.”• Homoeroticism never looked so good. #bookstagram #books #thepictureofdoriangray #oscarwilde
Which fictional villain do you think you'd actually get along with really well?
. . 
I feel like I'd actually get along with Dorian Gray 🤔 I know how that sounds 😂 But hear me out. He's into music, fine dining, dancing, partying, art, all the good shit. Aside from the complete and utter lack of morality, he seems like a really fun guy. Right?! No? Just me? 😂

I first started annotating books back in college because it was an easy way for me to mark important information in my textbooks. However, now I find that I actually enjoy marking up the books I read for pleasure as well. Any important passages or quotes I’ll underline in pencil and then mark with a sticky note. Occasionally I’ll write little notes in the margins. ~

Do you guys annotate your books? If so, how?

The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.

Book:- The Picture Of Dorian Gray.
Author:- Oscar Wilde.
🌟:-4/5.

The Picture Of Dorian Gray is a gothic and philosophical novel.

Dorian Gray is a young and handsome man. His friend Lord Henry takes him to a painter, Basil Hallward. The painter makes a picture of Dorian Gray, a fascinating piece which makes Dorian to stop ageing. His wish is fulfilled and the picture starts ageing instead of the young Dorian. The portrait day by day grows into a hideous record of evil, which he has to keep hidden from the world.
Throughout the book, we see Dorian go from good to evil, and back again. Through the sinful pleasures in which Dorian partakes, he's never really satisfied with his life, and as time goes on, he becomes increasingly unhappy.

The Picture of Dorian Gray shows that even if someone has everything they desire, including never ending youth, ultimately they will not be truly happy.

This book is ranked as one of Wilde's most important creations and among the classic achievements of it's kind.📚

‘The ugly and stupid have the best of it in this world. They can sit at their ease and gape at the play. If they know nothing of victory, they are at least spared the knowledge of defeat. They live as we all should live-- undisturbed, indifferent, and without disquiet. They never bring ruin upon others, nor ever receive it from alien hands. Your rank and wealth, Henry; my brains, such as they are-- my art, whatever it may be worth; Dorian Gray's good looks-- we shall all suffer for what the gods have given us, suffer terribly.’

How did I make it this far in life without reading Dorian Gray? 
Wilde’s writing in The Picture of Dorian Gray is gorgeous.  It’s a gripping, sincere tale of morality written with beauty and the pursuit of beauty by its primary characters. 
Dorian Gray is a frightening look at the weight that youth and vanity carry in society. •

ПОРТРЕТ ДОРИАНА ГРЕЯ.
ОСКАР УАЙЛЬД
#литрыська
🖌️
Художник пишет необыкновенно удачный портрет необыкновенно красивого молодого человека. А молодой человек, увидев его, осознав свою красоту со стороны, горячо желает всегда оставаться таким молодым и красивым как сейчас, а стареет пусть портрет. И его желание исполняется. Отныне все года и грехи отражаются на полотне и совсем не трогают красивого лица Дориана.
🖌️
Мне понравилось. Мне очень понравилось. В пятерку моих любимых книг этот роман не войдёт лишь потому, что места там слишком плотно и давно заняты. Но вот в 10 точно.
🖌️
Поразительно, сколько актуального в этом романе остаётся и по сей день.
🖌️
Я не ожидала, что он будет так легко читаться. Не ждала такого красивого языка, описательность Уальда это что-то с чем-то. Не думала, что уже с первых страниц найду своего любимого героя.
🖌️
И это, конечно, лорд Генри! Даже пугало, сколько из его речей было мне близко и сколько я выделила, как цитаты. Мой внутренний циник буквально подпрыгивал от счастья. Художник Бэзил тоже  нашел во мне отклик, уравновешивая своим романтизмом. А Дориан... Он был)
🖌️
В целом, моё внезапное желание прочитать это произведение вполне себя оправдало, очень приятно прошло)

“Dalle ombre della notte esce di nuovo la vita che conosciamo. Dobbiamo riprenderla dove l'abbiamo lasciata e a questo punto, pian piano, ci pervade la terribile sensazione di dover continuare a impiegare energia nello stesso monotono circolo di abitudini stereotipate, o anche il desiderio sfrenato che una mattina i nostri occhi si possano aprire su un mondo che nell'oscurità si è rinnovato per il nostro piacere, un mondo dove le cose abbiano nuove forme e colori, siano diverse o abbiano altri segreti, un mondo in cui il passato abbia poca o nessuna importanza, o comunque sopravviva in forme ignare del dovere o del rimpianto: anche il ricordo della gioia, infatti, possiede una sua amarezza e quello del piacere una sua pena.”
Cap.XI, Il ritratto di Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde

This temple, perched on a rugged cliff top, was built as a library in 1785 by the 4th Earl of Bristol who was Church of Ireland Bishop.  It forms part of the estate of Downhill Demesne, and was modelled on the Temple of Vesta in Rome.  Apparently its walls were once lined with books and a fire was kept constantly burning in the basement.  It had an enclosed flue, meaning that despite the exposed location, the books never got damp. .
Swipe to check out the views to Downhill Beach 👈(used for GOT filming) and the railway track that passes underneath and tell me if this windswept temple isn’t one of the most romantic locations for a library?!👌😍📚

Picture of Dorian Gray is a book I keep talking about and meaning to read, so now I’ve taken the pictures, am hoping that I’ll read it in the Autumn.  But as a mood reader, with #mumlife and #housemovepart2 , that’s subject to change!  Are there any books that you have genuinely wanted to read for ages, but they keep going to the bottom of the pile?

“The reason we all like to think so well of others is that we are all afraid for ourselves. The basis of optimism is sheer terror.” Another classic that’s sat unread on my bookshelf for decades. For the first 50 pages I really didn’t like it, but by the end thought it was amazing. #bookstagram #oscarwilde #thepictureofdoriangray
Let's stay with Oscar Wilde for a second, shall we?
This is a illustration  of the book The Picture of Dorian Gray, by Oscar Wilde.
 Dorian is represented as an innocent, pure and extremely beautiful young man; but as he realizes this throughout the story and after his Faustian pact, it is possible to see a transformation in his way of thinking. Dorian becomes insane, a demented killer, completely indifferent to the emotions of others, and his conscience is lost entirely.I represented this transitional phase in the character’s personality. It is still possible to detect his innocence; however there is already some fatigue present on his visage, a certain tiredness (bags under his eyes, a monochromatic face). The flowers are called Aconitum, or Wolfsbane, known for its amazing beauty but also for being one of the most poisonous and toxic flowers in the world. It's an allegory between the flower and the character.

O Retrato de Dorian Gray // Nova Cultural 1996 // 256 páginas.
.
Dorian Gray é um belo jovem virtuoso que oferece sua imagem para ser pintada por um artista chamado Basílio Hallward que é muito seu amigo. Durante as sessões da pintura, Dorian Gray conhece Lord Henry, um hedonista assumido com uma filosofia de vida egoísta e desalmada, na qual faz uma grande amizade devota com Dorian e passa a acompanha-lo dividindo com ele sua maneira de ver o mundo. Logo, Dorian começa a mostrar em sua personalidade características cruéis, passa a amar a beleza e a juventude mais do que tudo e cria uma aversão enorme pela realidade de que vai envelhecer.
.
Em vista disso, Dorian faz um desejo declarado revelando sua vontade de que o seu retrato que outrora fora pintado tomasse todo o peso de sua velhice que estaria por vir, mas que ele em sua forma física continuasse sempre jovem e saudável.
.
Logo após desejar essas coisas, Dorian começou a perceber que de fato o retrato envelhecia no seu lugar, além de revelar uma fisionomia horrenda de sua alma cruel e corrupta.

Nella lotta selvaggia per l'esistenza, vogliamo avere qualche cosa che duri e così riempiamo la nostra mente di ciarpami e di fatti, nella stupida speranza di riuscire a conservare il nostro posto. L'uomo perfettamente al corrente è una cosa spaventosa; assomiglia a una bottega di rigattiere, piena di mostri e di polvere, dove a ogni cosa è attribuito un prezzo superiore al suo valore.

Del 18 al 31 de agosto estaremos leyendo El retrato de Dorian Gray, es un clásico al cual le tenía muchas ganas, pero no leía porque me daba miedo. También estaba convencida de leerlo en una edición bonita y al final me enamoré de ésta de #barnesandnoble (y está en inglés, así es como lo quería leer)
¿Ustedes ya lo leyeron, qué les pareció?

80x100cm, mixed tecnique on paper «Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion.

And alien tears will fill for him

Pity’s long broken urn,

For his mourners will be outcast men,

And outcasts always mourn. .

Herkese merhaba!
🥀
Bugün okuduğum en iyi klasiği anlatacağım size. Kurgusuyla, diliyle, altında yatan imaları ve inceliğiyle hayatımda okuduğum en iyi klasiktir kendisi. Ve herkese şiddetle tavsiye ederim tabii ki.
🥀
Konusu şöyle; Basil adlı bir ressam, bir gün Dorian Gray adlı aşırı yakışıklı bir gençle tanışıyor. Onun resmini çizip, güzelliğini tuvale dökmek istiyor ve bunu da yapıyor. Ardından Basil’in arkadaşı Lonrd Henry ile Dorian tanışıyor ve bum, hikayenin temelleri atılıyor. 🥀
Dorian yaşlanmak istemiyor, hep bu genç güzelliği, yakışıklılığı kendisinde kalsın istiyor. Bu yüzden başına enterasan şeyler geliyor ve biz hayret içinde bunları teker teker okuyoruz.
🥀
Bu arada kitabın yazarı Oscar Wilde bu kitabı yayınladığında herkesçe ‘sapık ve ahlaksızca’ bulunduğundan cinsel cümleler içeren kısımlar kesilmiş. Çünkü kitap eşcinselliği de anlatıyormuş ve bu, 19. Yüzyılda hiç de hoş karşılaşılsan bir durum değilmiş. Zaten bunu muhtemelen biliyorsunuzdur. O yüzden 120 yıl boyunca insanlar sansürlenmiş romanı okumak zorunda kalmışlar. 🥀
Kitap, dediğim gibi çok iyi bir klasik. Klasik arayışı içinde olanlar okuyup yorumlarını benimle paylaşabilir.
🥀
Görüşmek üzereeeeee 💜🖤

Of course married life is merely a habit, a bad habit. But then one regrets the loss even of one’s worst habits. Perhaps one regrets them the most.

🥀 Güzel şeylerin içinde çirkin anlamlar bulanlar,  cezbedici olamadan yozlaşırlar.
🥀 Tüm sanatlar oldukça beyhudedir.
🥀 Yaşadığım sürece Dorian Gray'in karakteri bana hükmedecek.
🥀 Güzelliği solmayan her şeyi kıskanıyorum. Beni resmettiğin portreyi kıskanıyorum.
🥀 İyimserliğin temeli katıksız korkudur.
🥀 "Dorian'ın önünde böyle şeyler söylememelisin, Harry." " Hangi Dorian'ın önünde? Bize çay koyanın mı yoksa portredekinin mi?" " İkisinin önünde de."
🥀 Evet Dorian, bana daima düşkün olacaksın. İşlemeye cesaret edemediğin tüm günahları temsil ediyorum ben.

“La sigaretta è il modello perfetto di un piacere perfetto: è squisita e ti lascia insoddisfatto. Che cosa si può volere di più?”

«Il corpo pecca una sola volta e supera subito il peccato, perché l'azione è un modo di purificarsi. Allora non rimane più nulla, salvo il ricordo del piacere, o il lusso di un rimpianto. L'unico modo di liberarsi di una tentazione è abbandonarvisi. Resisti, e la tua anima si ammalerà del desiderio delle cose che si è proibite, di passione per ciò che le sue stesse mostruose leggi hanno reso mostruoso e illegale. Si è detto che i grandi avvenimenti dell'umanità si sviluppano nel cervello. Ed è anche nel cervello che si verificano i grandi peccati dell'umanità. Lei, signor Gray, lei stesso durante la sua purpurea gioventù, durante la sua candida adolescenza, ha avuto passioni che l'hanno spaventata, pensieri che l'hanno riempita di terrore, sogni e fantasticherie il cui semplice ricordo dovrebbe farla arrossire di vergogna…»
«Basta!» balbettò Dorian Gray, «basta! Lei mi sconvolge. Non so che cosa risponderle: c'è una risposta ma non la trovo. Non parli, mi lasci pensare. O, meglio, lasci che provi a non pensare.»
Cap.II, Il ritratto di Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde

"Düşünmesi acı gelebilir belki ama zeka güzellikten hiç şüphesiz daha kalıcıdır. Íşte bu yüzden gereğinden uzun bir eğitim hayatının zahmetlerine katlanmıyor muyuz? Bu vahşi, kıran kırana hayatta kalma mücadelesinde kalıcı bir şeylere sahip olmak ister, bu yüzden de yerimizi koruyabilmeye dair aptalca bir umutla kafamızı binbir türlü zirvayla ve doğruyla doldururuz. Modern çağın zihniyse ideali iyi eğitimli insandır. Iyi eğitim görmüş insanın zihniyse korkunçtur; her şeyin ederinin üzerinde satıldığı canavarlarla dolu, tozlu bir çifit çarşisı gibidir."
