About this deal

which eschewed imagination and flights of fancy for close observations of the real world and people. We degenerate into hideous puppets, haunted by the memory of the passions of which we were too much afraid, and the exquisite temptations that we had not the courage to yield to. It contains his only novel, The Portrait of Dorian Gray as well as his plays, stories, poems, essays and letters. I have been enjoying it and would recommend others to taste writings- his drams, poems, letters, stories to the great extent.

Infine, " Vera o i Nichilisti", che inizialmente annoia per la tematica politica, conquista con un linguaggio raffinatissimo ed un'impareggiabile purezza dei sentimenti e delle intenzioni, per poi terminare, ahimè, in modo troppo frettoloso. Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself, with desire for what its monstrous laws have made monstrous and unlawful.

It changed me from the moment that I read it, and I'm not even being dramatic, but the complex themes of morality and psychology in regard to human nature, combined with Wilde's exemplary writing, couldn't help but change something in my brain chemistry. There is also no shortage of criticism against the English upper class, and the homoerotic symbolism oozes from every other page.

The rich would have spoken on the value of thrift, and the idle grown eloquent over the dignity of labour.I suppose it comes from the fact that none of us can stand other people having the same faults as ourselves. I had 3 pieces from Wilde on the list - I've previously read a *bit* of him (about 10 stories, mostly thanks to Dedalus Books Decadence series) but, for example, haven't tackled an obvious must-read like The Picture of Dorian Grey. Constance On September 14, 2011, Wilde's grandson Merlin Holland contested Wilde's claimed authorship of this play entitled Constance, scheduled to open that week in the King's Head Theatre. There is further proof that the developed scenario that Constance was reconstituted from was written by Wilde between 1897 and his death in 1900, rather than the 1894 George Alexander scenario which Merlin Holland quotes.
