The most famous and popular novel of English writer Oscar Wilde.

Dorian Gray is a very attractive young man who wishes to make a link between his soul and his portrait so that the picture gets old but he stays young forever. However, not only the picture gets older instead of him — it also shows the influence of all his actions on his soul.

Can a painting of a person tell you more about him than the person’s own face?

If it is painted with love, perhaps the painting will show more than just the outside of that person – perhaps it will show the inside.

We often say that a face is like an open book: «the face tells its own story», we say.

When Dorian Gray sees the painting of his own face, he falls in love with his own beauty. Nothing must touch his beauty, nothing must hurt or change it – not love, not even time.

And so he cuts the link between his face and his heart, between his outside and his inside.

His face does not change; it stays young and beautiful.

But the picture – painted with love – tells the true story.

It shows the real Dorian Gray, who is growing old and ugly and full of hate.
