The Picture of Dorian Gray, by Oscar Wilde, is a work of fiction, which means it is made up. Though there are a lot of details in this book, the characters and events are not real. Slide 2 This story tells about a character named Dorian Gray, who is an attractive young man. One day, Dorian’s friend asks to paint Dorian’s portrait. He does a great job, and the picture really captures Dorian’s beauty. Slide 3 In fact, it really captures Dorian’s beauty. Soon, Dorian finds that his portrait will age and lose its attractiveness, while Dorian himself will remain forever young and good-looking. Slide 4 Realizing he cannot age, Dorian goes out into the world to do whatever he wants — and he wants to do terrible things. He lives a life of evil, treating people badly and causing misery everywhere he goes. Because he is so beautiful, people welcome him into their lives, and he destroys them. Slide 5 With every bad thing Dorian does, his portrait gets a little uglier. Soon Dorian is still a beautiful young man, but his picture shows someone hideous and twisted. His bad deeds show on the horrifying face of his portrait.
What is important about the picture in the story? Dorian Gray uses it to help others It shows Dorian Gray's true self Others realize Dorian Gray is immortal People cannot stop looking at it
I hope you got my message @hannah120899 :) I gtg, take care
It shows Dorian's true self.
@FitzIncorporated Thanks and can you help me with another one
Sure, no problem.
What is the "Picture of Dorian Gray" about? A young man who feels invincible does terrible things Life isn't fair and bad deeds often go unpunished Magical paintings that change people into better versions of themselves Portraits capture only physical beauty and don't show our true selves
All of the above except C. They're all interpretations of the book and there's no right answer, but there are several wrong ones. C. It doesn't change people into better versions of themselves.
alright thanks and there is also another paragraph that goes with it by me reading it i think its D
“How sad it is!” murmured Dorian Gray with his eyes still fixed upon his own portrait. “How sad it is! I shall grow old, and horrible, and dreadful. But this picture will remain always young. It will never be older than this particular day of June.... If it were only the other way! If it were I who was to be always young, and the picture that was to grow old! For that--for that--I would give everything! Yes, there is nothing in the whole world I would not give! … I know, now, that when one loses one's good looks, whatever they may be, one loses everything. Your picture has taught me that. Lord Henry Wotton is perfectly right. Youth is the only thing worth having. When I find that I am growing old, I shall kill myself.” Hallward turned pale and caught his hand. “Dorian! Dorian!” he cried, “don't talk like that. I have never had such a friend as you, and I shall never have such another. You are not jealous of material things, are you?--you who are finer than any of them!” “I am jealous of everything whose beauty does not die. I am jealous of the portrait you have painted of me. Why should it keep what I must lose? Every moment that passes takes something from me and gives something to it. Oh, if it were only the other way! If the picture could change, and I could be always what I am now! Why did you paint it? It will mock me some day--mock me horribly!” The hot tears welled into his eyes. “This is your doing, Harry,” said the painter bitterly. Lord Henry shrugged his shoulders. “It is the real Dorian Gray--that is all.”
Then I'd go with D. That's the theme of the paragraph.
Alright so I was right?
