Great piece of literature.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Picture of Dorian Gray (Modern Library) (Paperback)
I think it's easy to read Dorian Grey and be superficially fixated on the notion that the book was just a facade for Wilde's homosexuality.But refrain from that state of mind and I think you will properly permeate Dorian Grey.I believe the book had several prevailing messages buried under a slew of witty epigrams and paradoxial ideas and musings,which consequently served as a spur for his role as a dramatist.I hope that anyone who reads Dorian Grey will avoid making the mistake of reading It as a referance to early homosexual conduct(And let's face it,that topic has become so banal in recent years)but as a semi-iconoclastic landmark piece of literature.
