Le Portrait de Dorian Gray / The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde Book Resume:

Cette édition contient la traduction française et le texte original en anglais. "Le Portrait de Dorian Gray" ("The Picture of Dorian Gray") est un roman d'Oscar Wilde, publié en 1890 (révisé en 1891) et écrit dans le contexte de l'époque victorienne. L'auteur y inclut des thèmes relevant de l'esthétique tels que l'art, la beauté, la jeunesse, la morale, l'hédonisme, etc. Le roman est fantastique, mais aussi philosophique, et met en lumière la personnalité équivoque du dandy irlandais ainsi que le courant décadentiste, ce qui suscite de virulents échanges de lettres entre Wilde et plusieurs journaux très critiques jugeant l'œuvre "répugnante". C'est également l'unique roman de Wilde dans toute sa carrière. "The Picture of Dorian Gray" (1891), by Oscar Wilde, was first published as a serial story in the July 1890 issue of "Lippincott's Monthly Magazine". As submitted by Wilde to the magazine, the editors feared the story was indecent, and deleted five hundred words before publication — without Wilde's knowledge. Despite that censorship, "The Picture of Dorian Gray" offended the moral sensibilities of British book reviewers, some of whom said that Oscar Wilde merited prosecution for violating the laws guarding the public morality. In response, Wilde aggressively defended his novel and art in correspondence with the British press. Wilde revised and expanded the magazine edition of "The Picture of Dorian Gray" (1890) for publication as a novel; the book edition (1891) featured an aphoristic preface — an apologia about the art of the novel and the reader. The content, style, and presentation of the preface made it famous in its own literary right, as social and cultural criticism. In April 1891, the editorial house Ward, Lock and Company published the revised version of "The Picture of Dorian Gray". The only novel written by Wilde, "The Picture of Dorian Gray" exists in two versions, the 1890 magazine edition and the 1891 book edition, the story he submitted for serial publication in "Lippincott's Monthly Magazine". As literature of the 19th century, "The Picture of Dorian Gray" is an example of Gothic fiction with strong themes interpreted from the legendary "Faust".

Le Portrait de Dorian Gray par Oscar Wilde Le Portrait de Dorian Gray (The Picture of Dorian Gray) est un roman d'Oscar Wilde écrit dans le contexte de l'époque victorienne et publié en 1890, puis révisé en 1891. L'auteur y inclut des thèmes relevant de l'esthétique tels que l'art, la beauté, la jeunesse, la morale et l'hédonisme. C'est un roman fantastique, mais aussi philosophique, qui met en lumière la personnalité équivoque du dandy irlandais ainsi que le courant décadentiste, ce qui a suscité de virulents échanges de lettres entre Wilde et plusieurs journaux très critiques jugeant l'oeuvre répugnante . Principal représentant du courant de l'esthétisme anglais, Oscar Wilde profite de son roman pour illustrer et discuter les grands concepts de ce courant. On peut voir en Lord Henry l'auteur lui-même, amoureux des mots et dandy hédoniste connu pour ses moeurs légères. Dorian, jeune dandy londonien d'une rare beauté, fait la connaissance de Lord Henry, dit Harry, chez son ami Basil Hallward, un peintre reconnu. Ce dernier vient d'achever le portrait du jeune homme, un chef-d'oeuvre qu'ils contemplent tous les trois. Conscient de la fascination et de la perversion que Lord Henry pourrait exercer sur Dorian, cette simple et belle nature, Basil demande à Lord Henry de ne pas tenter de le corrompre. Mais Dorian se laisse séduire par les théories sur la jeunesse et le plaisir de ce nouvel ami qui le révèle à lui-même en le flattant Un nouvel Hédonisme, voilà ce que le siècle demande. Vous pouvez en être le tangible symbole. Il n'est rien avec votre personnalité que vous ne puissiez faire. Va naître dès lors en lui une profonde jalousie à l'égard de son propre portrait peint par Basil. Il formule le souhait que le tableau vieillisse à sa place pour pouvoir garder lui-même sa beauté d'adolescent Si c'était moi qui toujours devais rester jeune, et si cette peinture pouvait vieillir !... Pour cela, pour cela je donnerais tout !... Il n'est rien dans le monde que je ne donnerais... Mon âme, même ! Par la suite le jeune homme tombe amoureux d'une comédienne dont le jeu le fascine, Sibyl Vane, et lui promet le mariage. Mais son amour pour Dorian empêche Sibyl d'incarner ses personnages comme elle le faisait auparavant et son jeu devient très mauvais, ce que peuvent constater Basil et Lord Henry lorsque Dorian les emmène au théâtre. Profondément déçu et humilié, Dorian répudie Sibyl et la quitte brutalement, la laissant effondrée. En rentrant, il remarque sur le portrait une expression de cruauté qu'il ne lui connaissait pas.

Le portrait de Dorian Gray non censuré

Le portrait de Dorian Gray non censuré by Oscar Wilde Book Resume:

Tout le monde connaît le chef-d'œuvre d'Oscar Wilde tel qu'il a été publié en volume en 1891. Cette version diffère considérablement du manuscrit qu’il avait soumis quelques mois plus tôt au Lippincott's Magazine où le roman devait paraître en prépublication. Le directeur, par pruderie, l'avait sérieusement raboté, ce qui ne l'a pas empêché de provoquer un premier soulèvement d'indignation. Par la suite, Wilde a augmenté et remanié son roman, estompant ses passages les plus audacieux. La critique instruisait déjà son procès en immoralité. Il a fallu attendre 2011 pour que, en Angleterre, des universitaires rendent disponible le texte initial, avant les censures successives. C’est cette version que les Cahiers rouges publient pour la première fois en France. La trame reste inchangée. Dans le Londres fin de siècle, le peintre Basil Hallward tombe en adoration devant son modèle, le beau Dorian Gray. Leur chaste idylle commence, troublée par l'intervention d'un vieux camarade de Hallward, Lord Henry. Dandy hédoniste amoureux des bons mots, affichant avec insolence son homosexualité, il convainc Dorian de l'importance capitale de sa beauté. Un jour viendra où la vieillesse l'aura défiguré et plus personne ne le regardera. Horrifié, Dorian conclut un pacte faustien avec le portrait que Hallward a peint de lui : ce n'est plus lui que le temps abîmera, mais l’image du tableau. Le Portrait de Dorian Gray non censuré est encore plus délicieusement décadent et surtout plus ouvertement homosexuel. Le pouvoir érotique de Dorian est exacerbé, nombre de phrases rendent indubitable et intense la nature des sentiments de Hallward pour lui. On retrouvera bien sûr les saillies du spirituel Lord Henry, notamment le fameux : « De nos jours on sait le prix de tout, mais on ne connaît la valeur de rien. »

The Picture of Dorian Gray (The Original 1890 Uncensored Edition + The Expanded and Revised 1891 Edition) by Oscar Wilde Book Resume:

The Picture of Dorian Gray, the only novel by Oscar Wilde, was first published in 1890. A substantially revised and expanded edition was published in April 1891. For the new edition, Wilde revised the content of the novel's existing chapters, divided the final chapter into two chapters, and created six entirely new additional chapters. Whereas the original edition of the novel contains 13 chapters, the revised edition of the novel contains 20 chapters. The 1891 version was expanded from 13 to 20 chapters, but also toned down, particularly in some of its overt homoerotic aspects. Also, chapters 3, 5, and 15 to 18 are entirely new in the 1891 version, and chapter 13 from the first edition is split in two (becoming chapters 19 and 20). The novel tells of a young man named Dorian Gray, the subject of a painting by artist Basil Hallward. Dorian is selected for his remarkable physical beauty, and Basil becomes strongly infatuated with Dorian, believing that his beauty is responsible for a new mode of art. The Picture of Dorian Gray is considered one of the last works of classic gothic horror fiction with a strong Faustian theme. It deals with the artistic movement of the decadents, and homosexuality, both of which caused some controversy when the book was first published. However, in modern times, the book has been referred to as "one of the modern classics of Western literature”. Oscar Wills Wilde (1854 – 1900) was an Irish writer and poet. After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, he became one of London's most popular playwrights in the early 1890s. Today he is remembered for his epigrams, his only novel (The Picture of Dorian Gray), his plays, and the circumstances of his imprisonment and early death.

Aestheticism in Oscar Wilde's the Picture of Dorian Gray

Aestheticism in Oscar Wilde's the Picture of Dorian Gray by Jannis Rudzki-Weise Book Resume:

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2.0, University of Kassel, course: Anglo-American Literature, language: English, abstract: Oscar Wilde's only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, can be considered a revolutionary piece of literature not only because it broke out of the traditional value and belief pattern of the Victorian society but also because it replaced the traditional pattern with new concepts coined by Wilde and his former tutors. Several themes such as homoeroticism, an aesthetic lifestyle or influence and corruption, were issues that many had been afraid to address in the time before Wilde. In this research paper, I will place my main focus on the matter of aestheticism, the causes that it has and the consequences that result from an aesthetic lifestyle. In order to analyze these aspects, it is inevitable to have a closer look at Oscar Wilde's beliefs about art and morality which serve as a basis for understanding the main character's behavior in the novel. To begin my paper, I will outline Wilde's thoughts on art and aestheticism as presented in his famous selection, Intentions, which consists of a number of essays and dialogues on aesthetics as well as his preface to The Picture of Dorian Gray that has been regarded as Wilde's personal praise of aestheticism. This background information is essential to understanding the main character's motivations in the story, which can often be related to Wilde's life as an artist. I will then make a detailed analysis of the characters Basil Hallward, Lord Henry Wotton, Sibyl Vane and Dorian Gray and will explain how their aesthetic behavior and their moral beliefs can be linked to Wilde's thoughts. To end, I will attempt to summarize my findings referring to the statement that Wilde also included criticism of aestheticism in his novel. The term 'aestheticism' derives from Greek, meaning "perceiving through senses" and is a nineteenth-century European concept that rej

Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde Book Resume:

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition? includes a glossary and reader?s notes to help the modern reader contend with Wilde?s many allusions and his complex approach to the human condition.Oscar Wilde?s only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, first appeared in 1891. Dorian Gray, a handsome young man, falls in with a group of ?friends,? whose amoral philosophies he finds quite appealing. After he has his portrait painted, his frivolity and general demeanor degenerate into wickedness, but only the portrait bears the effects of his descent into decadence and serves as a powerful symbol of Gray?s internal ruin. Dorian himself, however, remains as young and unspoiled as the day he first sat for the painting. Wilde?s exploration of life without limits or consequences shocked its late-Victorian audience and remains highly un-settling to modern readers. We, like Dorian, are forced to reconsider whether total freedom and absolute knowledge are really worth their costs.
