Analysis Of Oscar Wilde 's ' Dorian Gray '

- ... One day, when drinking from the river, he notices his reflection and is completely captivated by it, not realizing that it is himself. Narcissus vows to wait for the beautiful person to come out, and he waits by the river until he dies (Myth of Narcissus). Like most myths, the creator is unknown, but they had the same perception of humanity as Oscar Wilde. It is apparent that the novel is loosely based on the myth because of the number of parallels in the stories. Dorian, like Narcissus, has heard how nice he looks from others all his life, but is unaware of the extent of his beauty until presented with an image of himself....   [tags: The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde]

Oscar Wilde 's The Picture Of Dorian Gray

- In Oscar Wilde’s novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, the character Basil Hallward is enamored with Dorian Gray’s youth and innocence. This love for Dorian is an example of Greek love or boy love that would have been popular during the late Victorian age, especially with the decadence.

Basil tells Harry of his feelings toward Dorian: The merely visible presence of this lad—for he seems to me little more than a lad, though he is really over twenty—his merely visible presence—ah....   [tags: Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray]

- Oscar Wilde liked to be right. Wait—no, no, that’s not right. Let’s try that again. Oscar Wilde liked people to think he was right. He had the uncanny ability of saying something that sounded good and then doing the exact opposite. Some would call that hypocrisy, but the more popular term for it seems to be “genius” judging by his status as a renowned writer and still-popular celebrity. Genius or not, Wilde knew how to put together a sentence.
