Description
When the portrait of Dorian Gray was published, the moralizing critic did not stop accusing its protagonist of being a satanic, corrupted and corrupting figure, without understanding that he was the hero of a novel that reflected the fatality of the romantics. Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) had wanted to make beauty a refinement of intelligence, and for that he plunged his protagonist, Dorian Gray, into an atmosphere of perversion dominated by art and the powers of a mystery that is beyond reality: thanks to the gods, the cult of beauty can transfer the traces of the passage of time to a painting, while the face of Dorian Gray remains unchanged and unalterable.
