he Picture Of Dorian Gray starts out with the artist who is painting the title character, Dorian Gray. The artist is enthralled with Dorian’s beauty and a sense of innocence. The artist, Basil, introduces Dorian to a friend, Lord Henry, as he sits for the portrait. Some could say that Lord Henry introduces Dorian to a life of no morals and selfishness. As the lord is the first to mention that the painting will always be a picture of Dorian forever young and the real Dorian will grow old. In a way, this stimulates Dorian to announce his wish to give his soul for the reverse. 5 people found this helpful.

Dorian Gray has very beautiful looking, and he impressed with his painting's own beauty. I think it's not a very good abbreviation for the original work of Wild. But years later, his painting's face changes ugly, and his character changes cruel. In fact, the original book tells us a crazy story about a very beautiful young man who wanted to stay young forever. He did it by an amazing picture painted by his friend. Year after year, in the whole 26yeas he lived a evil but glaring life and devoted himself to the greatest pleasure.
