He was hired to go to ... Weiterlesen

»The Picture of Dorian Gray« altered the way Victorians understood the world they inhabited. It heralded the end of a repressive Victorianism, and after its publication, literature had a different look. Yet the »Dorian Gray« that Victorians never knew was even more daring than the novel the British press condemned as »vulgar«, »unclean«, »poisonous«, »discreditable«, and »a sham«. Now, more ...
