The Picture of Dorian Gray (with an Essay by Jules Barbey D'Aurevilly) by Oscar Wilde, Jules Barbey d'Aurevilly

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Picture of Dorian Gray (with an Essay by Jules Barbey D'Aurevilly) Perhaps the book that created the most general discussion and criticism at this period was The Picture of Dorian Gray which appeared originally in Lippincott s Magazine in July as the complete novel for that issue Wilde at first demurred on the ground that he had not tried his hand on a long and sustained story but fi nally gave his consent The story seems to have simmered in his mind for some time though after he had once begun it it was quickly completed Wilde has himself said that he wrote it in a few days In a preface to this story written for a later edition in book form Mr Basil Ward the artist tells of the genesis of the story It goes back to the year when Oscar Wilde was often in Mr Ward s studio One of Mr Ward s sitters was a young man of such peculiar beauty that his friends had nicknamed him The Radiant Youth Each afternoon Wilde watched the work advance enchanting everybody meanwhile with brilliant talk until at last the portrait was fi nished and its original had gone his way rejoicing without doubt to be at liberty What a pity sighed Wilde that such a glorious creature should ever grow old Yes it is indeed answered Mr Ward How delightful it would be if Dorian could remain exactly as he is while the portrait aged and withered in his stead I wish it might be so And that was all I occupied myself says Mr Ward with the picture for perhaps a quarter of an hour during which Wilde smoked refl ectively but uttered not one word He arose presently and sauntered to the door merely nodding as he left the room Jules Barbey d Aurevilly
