The Picture of Dorian Gray


We all have a Dorian Gray’s portrait in our lives. Could be our partner, work environment, parents, friends, a mirror that is reflecting our scars, what we hate, how we behave, our vanities, fears and flaws. A portrait that is showing to us who we really are. We are what we attract. We are what we think.

I strongly recommend this novel written by Oscar Wilde in 1890 about the human condition. It’s full of wisdom, aphorisms and aesthetic lifestyle. If you are more into films watch the screening of the novel. The one that I watched made in 2009 with Colin Firth in the role of Lord Henry Wotton, it really gave a horror turn to the story and wasn’t very faithful to the Victorian era novel.
