Literary Inspirations - Picture of Dorian Gray

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

This week's literary inspiration is  The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.

Elegance and opulence define this set. Evening gowns, opera glasses, playbills, gold, jewels, embroidery, riches of every kind. However there is a warning to be heeded, lest we look into the mirror and see only beauty and worldly riches while ignoring the corruption within that may end up destroying us.

The book did have a depressing ending, although not more than he deserved.
