Dorian Gray is a hero of the Gothic novel of upbringing with the Allegorical Proverbs "Portrait of Dorian Gray" Oscar Wilde, published in 1980.
Young aristocrat endowed with incredible beauty. Finding on the influence of the ideas of the new hedonism, devotes their lives to the thirst for pleasures and vice. It combines a thin estret, even a romantic, and a vicious debugger and an insensible egoist, capable of a crime.
The hero of several films and theatrical performances.
Artist Basil Holorior writes a portrait of an object of his creative inspiration, twenty-year-old Dorian Gray, a modest and beautiful young man. Admiring his image, Dorian expresses a desire to always remain so young, and his portrait standing. He accidentally meets the friend of Basila, Lord Henry Watton - a sarcastic hedonist, despising traditional Victorian values, and (being sensual, but wins out) quickly falls under the influence of its vicious ideas. Zinic Lord Henry deliberately pushes Dorian on the path of debauchery (in fact, putting a psychological experiment on it and seeking to conquer his soul), which Basil is trying to prevent anywhere.
Dorian falls in love with the town actress, young beauty Siberia Wayne, and is going to marry her. But after the appearance of the performance, to which he invited Lord Henry and Basila, he grossly criticizes her and leaves, leaving her in tears. In the next morning, he is going to fix his behavior, but he learns from newspapers that Sibilel committed suicide. Dorian noticed that his face in the portrait was distorted in an evil smile, and in a panic hides a portrait in the attic. Having succumbed to the bad effect of Henry, Dorian is becoming more vicious and depraved, which is reflected in his portrait, but at the same time he retains youth and is still good. On society, he gives the impression of angel and a welcome guest. With a scope collects various art objects, no matter how, however, without delaying attention for a long time. At times, he rises to the attic look at his ugly portrait, rejoicing impunity.
A few years later, the artist meets with Dorian: Gray is still beautiful and flawless outwardly, but Basil is heard about the mass of the vices, which is subject to his friend. In a private conversation, he tells Dorian about this and demands an answer; The latter shows the basile portrait, which depicts an ugly and unpleasant person. Basil with difficulty learns his work and realizes that all rumors about Dorian - True. Gray in rabies kills Holluard, believing it is his guilty in his moral fall.
After the murder, he is beginning to pursue obsessive fears, which only increase after a random meeting in opium bond with James Wein, Brother Sibilla, who looked away to take revenge on her sister's death. Doriana managed to go away from Wayna, convincing him that he confused him with someone else - because he still looks young as 18 years ago. However, Wane quickly realizes his mistake and again begins to look for it, but he dies, being accidentally shot on the hunt.
Despite the mining danger, Dorian can't find peace and decides to change for the better. Having done, in his opinion, a good deed - letting the peasant girl who fell in love with him, who did not blame her, - he goes to the portrait, hoping that he became better, but looking at him, he understood that his thoughts had only vanity. Based on the desire to destroy the only witness to his sins, Dorian is blunting a knife in a portrait, after which he dies himself.
The servants find an untouched portrait, which shows a beautiful young man, and next to the portrait - repenting the old man who stood the knife in his chest. In the old man "Only on the rings in the arms", they recognize Dorian Gray.
- In Dorian Gree, the features of the new Faust are guessed. In the role of Mephistofel, Lord Henry is, it is he who throughout the novel seduces Dorian hearing the ideas of new hedonism, turns the innocent and talented young man in the vicious monster.
- According to the writer F. S. Fitzgerald, "Portrait of Dorian Gray" - "In general, only a few sublime fairy tale, which is useful for adolescents of seventeen years, because it encourages them to think about something to think about" and in which "Shagrenaya Skin »Balzac and" On the contrary "Gyuismans [one]  . When leaving Roman Wilde was accused of insulting public morality. As a result, he received a real prison sentence.
- The preface to the novel consists of 25 aphorisms, which proclaim the aesthetic ideals of the author. Oscar Wauld, though he was a supporter of the theory of aesthetism, but the habit of the separation of ethical and aesthetic principles is clearly described in the work. The ministry leads to death, as happened to the hero of the novel. To feel and enjoy beauty, and at the same time save your face and virtue, it is necessary to always abide by the rules of morality and not bring themselves to fanaticism, even if there is eternal life in stock.
- Roman has a real basis. Oscar Uald really was a friend of Basil, who was a talented artist. Once in his workshop, the writer saw a very beautiful young man. Wald was delighted with a charming appearance of a simulator and noticed with bitterness that this beauty is not to avoid old age with its ugliness. But the artist was ready to draw the image of the handsome every year so that the aging and withering reflected only on the canvas.
- In the novel, none of the vices of the main character is clearly named, besides the murder of the artist and abuse of opium. Wilde himself said that everyone sees his own sins and vices in his hero: "Everyone sees his own sins in Dorian Grey. What a sin of Dorian Gray, no one knows. The one who finds them will be brought them to them."
- Dorian Gray Syndrome (Eng. Dorian Gray Syndrome) - the cult of youth, considering permanently longer conservation of lifestyle, including within the framework of the features inherent in the youth or younger period of life. It is expressed in fear of physical fading or aging. It is compensated by the unjustified use of youth attributes, the choice of clothing in the youth style, as a last resort leads to the abuse of plastic surgery and cosmetic means. Sometimes this disorder ends with depression and suicide attempts. There is no uniform opinion about psychologists about whether this condition is a disease. The Association of American Psychologists does not include this disorder in the number of diseases.

Epigraph: morons! Idiots! Who lasted you at all?!Many publishers when it comes to creating a cover for the novel "Portrait of Dorian Gray", go a banal way - put some picture to the cover, depicting a man. Anyone. Sometimes not even necessarily beautiful and young. I studied several hundred covers to this novel, and found only 1 (one!) Correctly selected picture. All the rest - resolutely by. At the same time, paintings in the museums of the world, where you can see the face of Dorian Gray, as I described it in the Roman Oscar Wilde, a lot. We just need to be able to recognize it. Let's open the truth for yourself. (Collage of 393 covers of the entire link, carefully, 60 megabytes; it is useful for artists - to study and never do anything like that!) We have already approached this topic in one of the previous cycle issues ("Whether the author of Dorian's portrait of Dorian Gray Prerafaelite or not"), but now let's stop in it in detail. (People, sorry, you asked the end of the screenplay, but the inspiration rolls me) As everyone who carefully read the book carefully, to see the "right" face of Doriana is impossible. Give God, if the requirement is complied with at least age. Purchase with such persons, as described in the novel, they are rare, even less often they become actors, even less often they give the main roles. However, what prevents us from doing perfect casting and search the performer on the masterpieces of painting in the museums of the world? And in museums, there are many such persons. Because Oscar Wilde describes the "unconscious, perfect, vague", the ideal of beauty that he has repeatedly seen in works of art - and that is why because of this power of memory of great and "good", not only because of banal youth And beauty, the face of Doriana produces such a strong impression on it, and on all (formed aristocrats and aristocrats), whom he will consult for the future twenty years. Illustration of Modest Dvorov to the translation of the "Portrait of Dorian Gray" Anna Minzlovaya. (M., 1906, book publishing "Gry") The modern American science fiction Mike Reznik has a good novel. It is called The Dark Lady: A Romance of the Far Future (Our transferred as "Black Lady: Poem about a distant future", but this is actually a "dim lady" Shakespeare mean). The main character, an aliens-art historian person (this, by the way, the only art history character in the books that does not infuriate me), studying human art, with surprise it discovers that from century a variety of artists-people on a wide variety of planets, inspired by the face of one And the same beauties. Which comes out, then is immortal? He is trying to unravel this secret (there is farthing, mysticism, philosophy, is wicked cool, I will not spare). Wilde is the same situation: then a person who, according to the description of the writer, has Dorian Gray - this is an ideal, a cultural pattern, which from the century is found in the works of earthly art, as if this swimmer is also immortal, like Dark Lady from fantastic Roman Reznika. In our study with a quotation from the novel, in which Wilde describes the appearance of Doriana. The first, he is twenty years old and several months, and he is full of youthful charms, he has a "charming boyish smile." Written, the writer constantly emphasizes The color of the gamut in which the young man was "performed": "Light hair was shone in the rays of the early sun. Blue eyes met with his eyes, "Sir Henry calls him" Young Adonis, which seems to be created from the ivory and rose petals. " "The world has changed because you are created from ivory and gold. The bending of your mouth writes re-all the history of the world. " It says one of the loved letters received by him. It goes about the Christielefantic technique of sculpture, when the statues were created from thin plates of gold and ivory on a wooden frame (Christ + Elephant = Gold + Elephant). So they did the most valuable statues of antiquity, starting with Zeus Fidiya (one of 7 miracles) and Athens Parthenos on the Acropolis. Due to the value and fragility of the material, nothing, of course, was not preserved, except for the darkened archaeological fragments that do not transmit all the charm of this strange combination. You can try at least a little to present this combination of solar and lunar radiance according to Catholic figures that are made from ivory in Asia Statue of Our Lady of Marine Manila Madonna (17th century, Goa / Portugal) He has beautiful lips, blue eyes and gold curls: "No doubt he was extremely beautiful. His scarlet lips are so finely outlined; He has open blue eyes and soft, golden curls. In his face there was something, immediately called confidence; It was all the blameful and ardent purity of youth, "the curls of these are quite long:" He was without a hat, and the leaves ignored his recalcitable curls, confusing their golden strands. " Botticelli. "Tondo Rachinsky". 1477, Berlin Art Gallery He has a disturbing drawing of the lips, which is also said more than once: "Semi-column lips and flaming eyes." Circle Henri Pierre Danla. "Portrait of a young man", end 1790s Thirdly, Dorian is similar to an antique statue, it seems to be broken from marble: "Noble lines of finely broken nostrils and plastic necks." "He possessed the grace, snow-white cleanliness of adolescence and beauty, the beauty that only the ancient Greek sculptures retained us." "Delphic cat", 5th century BC Polyclet. "Daidumen" (5 V. BC), Athenian Archaeological Museum In addition, there is a feeling (according to Lord Henry) that the handsome man does not have intelligence, very stupid. It is snow-white leather: "right, you should not sunbathe, it will be to your face." His blue eyes are darker when it's angry: "The eyes of darkened, they became similar to amethysts and fought the fog of tears." Anthony Sandis. "Jealousy", the end of the 19th century. (By the way, there is a publication of Wilde Roman with this Pre-Faelite painting on the cover. This is the only successful choice of painting for the cover). Fourthly: Dorian is like all young and beautiful heroes of ancient Greek mythology: "I wrote you to Paris in elegant armor and adonis in the hunting raincoat, with a sparkling spear. Humped by heavy flowers, you sat on the stern of the Adrian ship, looking at a quiet, green Nile. You tilted over a quiet pond in some Ellin's grove and saw a miracle of your face in the frozen silver water. And all this was such as art should be, - unconscious, perfect, vague. " J.L. David. "Paris and Elena". 1788. Antonio Corradini. "Adonis". OK. 1723-25 Once again, the mention of the ancient handsome Narcissa we meet in the rows about the relationship of Dorian with a portrait, at an early stage: "Once, in a boy, imitating Narcissus, he kissed, or pretended that he kisses these namulean lips, which now so cruelly smile at him. The morning after the morning he sat down in front of his portrait, struggling his beauty and almost falling in love with her, as it seemed to himself. " Jules-Cyrille Cavé. "Narcissus". 1890. There are constantly comparisons with Adonis and Antinode. In general, in the sound of the name "Dorian", alliteration with "Adonis" and "Antinea" will be very important. Antique Statue (Eleusin) Antinea Statue from Louvre (Digital Coloring by Marty McCorkle) Oh, listen, and what is the name of this - "Dorian"? The English Wikipedia writes that Irish, however, does not show a single person with this name born before the revenue of the novel. According to another version, this is just the English word "Dorien", by the name of the ancient tribe in Greece. It is a name Dorian Gray. For a native speaker, hearing it for the first time, it is, roughly speaking, something like "gray Ellin", the association is purely cultural? 1) Ill. M.

This canon youthful beauty, examples of which I led above is easily noticeable in the text of the novel (if there is sufficient erudition). But Wilde and direct text writes what the face of Doriana was - he is very much like his beauty. There is similar to another famous beauty, from which there are a lot of paintings! In one scene Dorian walks on his estate, along portrait The gallery of the ancestors, and sees another picture, on which "... His mother, similar to Lady Hamilton - with such wet, as if mesochered wine lips, - he knew that he was inherited from her! He inherited his own beauty and passion for the beauty of others.

The film Forrest Gump reminds us what an excessive meaning of the world today gives the media, political events of a different scale, as far as he is in wars, constant competition.
We stopped to appreciate and thank life for health, for loved ones nearby, for joy just run into your pleasure from the coast of the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean.
The eyes of Forrest, the world seems simple and understandable - he does not look at the edge, does not seek the subtext in words and events. Someone will say that such naivety is dangerous in our world, but no more than you treat it - a negative or positive fill your thought and the world around yourself.
Forrest is sad, returning to his home, after the death of the mother. His saturated life always seems inferior to him, as he misses his love, misses Jenny every day. Even when the magnificent landscapes surround him, where in the stroy of the lake it is reflected like the second sky, he is ready to exchange it all for a few minutes with a close man.
The whole success of the business for catching shrimp becomes something far for him when he hears the news of his mother's disease. Even in the lawn haircut, as an honorary citizen, Forrest finds her peace and happiness. While young people built important plans for a meeting with the head of state, Forrest Gampea was important that at such techniques it was possible to eat plenty and drink how many DOCTOR PEPPER bottles.
When the ability to act as Martin Luther King, in front of a crowded audience opposite the Washington monument, the young veteran tells his "only one thing about Vietnam." Forrest understands that he is not very smart, not the best husband or father, but he gives all his loved ones.
Forrest Gump unfortunately explains that he was called in honor of a ancestor, which was one of the founders of Ku-Klux Clan - for the main character, these were people who went on horseback and wore strange white balachons on the head.
The radical organization "Black Panther" seemed to him no more than a group of aggressive people who build their plans overlooking the window to the Capitol.
Whole epochs of American history are revealed by words and, apparently, we understand the Forrest through the history of the pedigrees of Lieutenant Dan and the mother of Babba. Male ancestors of one died with the flag in the hands on the fronts of the War of Independence, the Civil War, the First World War and World War II. Female ancestors of the mother of the mother of Babba centuries were served by white inhabitants of America shrimp. Two square meters of simplified decoration of the battlefield in one case and rooms overlooking the green meadows in another.
Forrest did not understand what kind of "rather" of Jenny's father and sisters were talking about - he understood it too literally - that his father loved and kissed his daughters. Until the very end of Jenny's history and before the demolition of the old house, he never knew, and could not understand what was the most important social problem.
Where Oliver Stone in the film "Born July 4" showed the horrors of the hospital for wounded in Vietnam American soldiers, Forrest Gump sees the best - that you can eat the ice cream to eat, lie on the stomach and play ping pong.
The problem of racial segregation in the middle of the twentieth century and the struggle for civil rights for Forrest is another page of his simplified understanding. He raises the fallen black student things, which is accompanied by the National Guard to the party, executing the presidential decree, against the will of the Governor Wallace.
All the complexity of American football, a whole world of sports, big bets, competition, billions of dollars, turns around for the Forrest of Gampa, just quickly run with the ball in his hands. He is enough for him to be his name on posters, and at the same time getting a college diploma.
The manifold of the United States of America for the hero of Tom Hanks, fits in the funny names of the soldiers from his platoon, which are the name of the states. The Babylonian Tower of Representing the Army of Young Men from all over the country is seen by the protagonist very simple. He even begins to confuse places and names.
All the essence of cruel war in Southeast Asia is shown through the prism of some "most important" things that the newlywedkie should know. It is necessary to stop giving honor to the officer, take care of your feet from moisture, listen to orders, not to get into trouble and look for some "Charlie" (called the American military used for the conventional designation of enemies). In Vietnam, it was necessary to just go ahead, and there was always going there. When Babba on the threshold of death, asks Forrest, why it happened, his friend understands the question too literally - "you shot you." Anti-war protests in America for the main character are just a meeting of the scornful people in Washington.
Another sport, which received from Forrest Gampa his simplification is ping pong. He, as in the case of other important things in his life, simply said not to reduce the eyes from the ball. Not overloaded with the meaning of this action, Forrest simply did what he was shown. He was a star of sport and visited China. The complexity of international relations and the struggle of ideologies for him was reduced to the game in ping pong and to the portrait of Mao.
As long as the journalists and millions of Americans beat their heads over which protest, the Forrest Gump expresses his run, he just wanted to run. For some few seconds, crucial themes in the lens of public attention are voiced, but they are just a set of words for Forrest.
The whole cultural revolution in the United States in the 1960-1970s is transmitted through the story of Jenny and through how Forrest sees it. Erotic photos of the female body in the magazine "Playboy", hipsters, "Summer Love" and the famous symbolic song "IF You Go to San-Francisco".
When Jenny, already the wider experience in college, asks his friend's childhood, had to be with a woman, Forrest says that he sometimes sits with them near the lessons, and the next close experience turns around for a joke. To the question of who he wants to be in life, the main character pronounces a cult phrase: "But will I not be myself".
While everyone laughs over Forrest, call it stupid, he fulfills the promise that gave the best friend. It doesn't matter how the critical attitude of the shrimp around the surrounding to the idea is to buy an old leaky boat. It turns out that by a solution from the period of the first failures, it becomes for the Forrest just applying the finest name on board his vessel.
Forrest with a smile remembers how many times he met with American presidents: Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon. Sat at the TV show next to the cult john Lennon. Being another child, danced to the unusual music of the traveler, who after will be the scene by Elvis Prashley. He regarded these great people, these individuals, as simply pleasant or not. In his memory, it was postponed that a few years after the meeting, the bad events happened to them. However, one phone call at night, as the movie shows, cost the presidential chair Richard Nixon, after Watetergit.
Forrest Gump cannot understand in the global sense why people go away from life. So it was with Babba, then with his mother, and after and from Jenny. In the case of the last we are talking about a "unknown virus" in the early 1980s. The most successful metaphor for life for him remains a box of chocolate candies.
Forrest Gump has never sought publicity, to intentionally put his life at the bottom. He did not even think about who he wanted to become, preferring to remain. Thus, he followed one of the postulates of personal development - to accept itself as a person and develop its uniqueness, individuality, because the second one has never been such a person, no will not be in the world.
He continued to be himself always and everywhere and enchanting people, he fell to the editors of newspapers and television, on the best sports competitions. Forrest Gump has never gave meaning to material things. He rushed, having participating in the advertising company of the tennis racket only on the advice of the mother and from the understanding that this money would be useful to him to fulfill the promise to Bestboy. He is a millionaire, owning large companies and even Apple's shares, but in his words there is no importance or desire to be elevated for someone else's account.
As a plot and semantic contrast to the simplicity of Forrest, the story of his second half - Jenny is served. She grew up in a disadvantaged family and she was still closely in Greenborough Penates, Alabama. The girl sought to publicity, she, like millions of girls before and after her, dreamed of being famous, be a star. She, as if she was a feather, followed the dover of American history, where it sent it. Forrest Gump for many years was for Jenny too landed, too simple, not understanding her ambitions. Only according to the result, he achieved unthinkable heights, and her life turned out to be a turn of failures and confusion, falling to drugs and an unleash lifestyle. She never had decent work or prosperity, his good housing, and the peace was not only in recent months of life. By the end of which she returned to Forrest, which he kept about the reserve for so many years.
In many senses, the boy in orthopedic shoes destroyed public stereotypes of his time. Very often, he blindly followed the instructions of other people, especially Mother and Jenny, but then changed the usual position of things. It can be said that its simpleness and low intelligence coefficient played a significant role in this. Someone may agree to good luck, which everyone always lacks and which is so easily noticeable in the success of others. It is possible to say that the Forrest Gump simply turned out to be in the right place and at the right time to pay attention to him, and so that he changed the established state of affairs.
First of all, Forrest Gump always remained his own itself - what is missing by most people. He did not put a goal intentionally not to be like everyone, breaking the floor, stand out. He was different from birth and just remained the same boy in orthopedic shoes, while the United States has changed the history locally and globally. He simply did not know and could not be aware of those contrived restrictions that a person can do and what can not. If it were, as everyone around, overwhelmed doubts, Forrest would not be founded by the largest carp of shrimp. And so the question for him consisted only in the fulfillment of the word he gave the best friend. On the one hand, Forrest Gump often fell under the influence of others and followed the flow. On the other hand, it was responsible for his life in his hands, did not search for excuses and did not slander the successes of others.
The film itself forrest Gump often deserves in the lists of the most lively affluent and motivating paintings. An exceptionally positive hero, his adventures on the web of history, a lot of humor, excellent music and a bright visual component. And the thought is that in this world you can achieve anything, if you sincerely, not retreat from the way and give others more than you are waiting for for yourself. In many senses, Forrest is a selfless optimist and altruist, who is ready to give everything that he has close and even strangers if it is more important to them or they will ask.
So far, for hundreds of thousands of American military war in Vietnam, a real hell, Forrest, liked the meaningful of his days, when it was necessary to constantly go somewhere forward, listening to lieutenant and seek the guy named Charlie. While the athletes began to play ping-pong with an inlemic childhood, Forrest Gump just began to follow the ball and became a star. So far, millions of Americans came to get into the news and become celebrities, Forrest Gump simply fled forward, not attracting special attention to himself. The men in the bar were glared on a naked girl, and Forrest climbed to beat the muzzle to the offenders and closed Jenny. Young guys stood his hand to the president and talked about their ambitions, and Forrest Gump just wanted to go to the toilet or was ready to show his savory wound to the head of state.
The plot of the film Forrest Gump is built as a monologue of the main character with rare issues and comments from his listeners. This bench has become a kind of metaphor of all American history, through which the life of Forrest GAMPA passes. Next to him sits a young black girl who politely ignores the flow of consciousness from the neighbor. Young woman with a child who remembers the events of the 1960s.
A man at the age, with a mockery rejecting thought that he was sitting next to a millionaire and celebrity. Immediately behind him, the elderly lady involves himself and it turns out (although we also know it) that Forrest spoke the truth and his words are not just a "very interesting story", which are immediately talking to the German magazines immediately.
The interlocutors change around Forrest, as the generations of Americans changed in his stories. The narrator itself remains unchanged, who, with enthusiasm and simpleness, sharing the most personal belongings that others are not capable of. Forrest Word frankly comments on important events of the last twenty-five years, without constraints and even with a smile. Whether these people will remember about the eccentric neighbor along a bench, whether they will take a bit of history with them.
Will it be after looking for information about this person? For Forrest, they are all the same chocolate candies that life offers when you run your hand in the box with its secrets and capabilities.
After her first Oscar for the best male role in Philadelphia, Tom Hanks makes amazing progress - he receives this most prestigious reward for the second year in a row.
Andrew Beckett and Forrest Gump plugly, ideologous, emotionally, absolutely different characters of world cinema and Tom Hanks earned their awards in both cases, because he had two completely awesome images.
How many times we laughed when we saw this eccentric, with a tilt forward, the walking of Forrest. Smiled his pronunciation and southern accent, stupid face expressing in response to serious questions. What a mimic kaleidoscope in some scenes is reflected in this hero. How sincere it seems to and how unless and sincerely we believe that we have a real person, and not just the fiction of Winston's writer Groured, the screenwriter of the film or director Robert Zeekis. Tom Hanks does not just play Forrest - he is two more thanks and there is a forrest gamp in the flesh.
"Portrait of Dorian Gray" - a kind of business card of Oscar Wilde. From the moment of entering the light, this one of the published writer's novels had a deafening success and subsequently was repeatedly shielded.
In London society, few people doubted that the prototype of the main character was the Protege of Oscar Wilde - a novice poet John Henry Gray. But in the fate of the writer, as in a nightmare, Dorianov turned out to be a two-prototype and an incarnate copy.
"The portrait of Dorian Gray" not only reflected the strange relationship of the writer with John Gray, but also paradoxically anticipated the future connection of the writer with Alfred Douglas, who became an accurate copy of Dorian in his fate.
John Gray was from a simple family. He was born on March 2, 1866 in the work of the East End and was the eldest of nine children. Despite the good abilities and academic performance, at the age of 13, it was forced to leave school and get a job. Taking turns at the factory, the young man continued to study at his expense, studied mathematics, languages, music and art. As a result, he managed to do a good career. At the age of 16, he got a job at one of the branches of the London Chief Advice, at 21 he entered the University of London, and at 22 he got a job in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
At about the same time, he met Oscar Wilde and became his literary protege.
Oscar Wilde was older Gray for 12 years, had a wife and two sons, which did not prevent him from captivating the young men, to appear with him in society and shock the public with outrageous behavior and statements. John was a difficult, multifaceted man, similar, according to Wilde "in the Greek God." The writer helped the Gray release the first collection of his poems, and himself, inspired by his youth and beauty created the image of the forever young, beautiful Dorian Gray.
In 1890, the novel saw the light and immediately attracted attention as enthusiastic fans and zealous persecutors who accused the work in immorality. However, it was not so. Moral in the novel was definitely present - it is impossible to kill conscience with impunity. But the image itself of Dorian Gray, as well as too closely close to the writer with his literary prototype heated passion. Newspaper Star Macesed the name of John on his pages, representing his tomometric beloved scandalous writer. As a result, Gray was forced to submit to court and even achieved apologies, but his relationship with Wilde was gradually sued. At about the same time, John became acquainted with the succession from Russia Andre Raffalovich.
Oscar Wilde Raffalovich despised, considered him an upset and periodically ridiculed, sometimes very hard. Knowing that Raffalovich dreams of opening a literary salon, said: "Poor Raffalovich came to London to open the salon, but he managed to open the Kabak." Nevertheless, the friendship of John Gray and Andre Raffalovich lasted before their death, they lived happily for more than 40 years, together adopted Catholicism (and Gray was ordained to priests) and both died in 1934 with a difference of several months.
And in the life of Oscar Wilde, after the hearing, a new Dorian appeared - Lord Alfred Bruce Douglas. And, if before meeting him, the short novels of Wilde with men quickly moved to friendship, now the writer fell in love seriously. Sophisticated, despite youth, in unconventional love, capricious, cynical, but damn seductive Alfred thoroughly discovered his head. And completely unjustly accused of Wilde, that he was corrupted by a young man. Bosie (as Alfred's friends called) was monstrously corrupted before the meeting with the writer, who played a fatal role played in whose fate.
I think that Oscar Wilde crushed the Boss from the very beginning. And I understood that the angelic appearance of the "Star Boy" hides a selfish, vychny, infinitely narcissistic type. But this already, apparently, it was no matter.
As for Bosie, he was shocked by Roman, re-read it 11 times and, apparently, more and more on the role of Dorian. He also wanted admiration, patrons, if possible, talented and brilliant. And the aesthetic views of Wilde, declared art for the sake of art, became a vital philosophy for him. But if Wilde still raised more, Ironized, provoked society, not being, in essence, an immoral person, then Alfred perceived it as a complete justification of his immorality - to live by instincts, enjoy life, take it all. Honor, cleanliness, nobility - conditional concepts, you can come true if you are young, handsome and enough to refuse them.
He demanded admiration, permanent exits in the light, publicly, despite the fact that the writer was married and raised two children. The recognition of their connection in the conditions of Victorian England was equivalent to suicide. And when the father of Alfred Marquis Quinsberry called Wilde Codomit, it was Bosy who insisted that the writer would come to court. As a result, the trial was played, against Oscar Wilde, the case of slander was initiated, in the process of which he was accused of homosexuality, subjected to public ultracy and sent to prison. And he began to post a conclusion in prisons for recidivists and especially dangerous criminals. Bosy, despite the resonant matter, came out dry out of the water and stopped all relationships with a former friend. He needed money, fame and the situation that he could no longer provide.
So described in the novel nightmare, repeated in the life of the writer. The admiration facility killed his creator. Dorian Gray killed the artist who wrote his portrait.
Is it possible to call the Dubrovsky noble hero?
