Über den Autor

Flamboyant man-about-town, Oscar Wilde had a reputation that preceded him, especially in his early career. He was born to a middle-class Irish family (his father was a surgeon) and was trained as a scholarship boy at Trinity College, Dublin. He subsequently won a scholarship to Magdalen College, mehr anzeigen Oxford, where he was heavily influenced by John Ruskin and Walter Pater, whose aestheticism was taken to its radical extreme in Wilde's work. By 1879 he was already known as a wit and a dandy; soon after, in fact, he was satirized in Gilbert and Sullivan's Patience. Largely on the strength of his public persona, Wilde undertook a lecture tour to the United States in 1882, where he saw his play Vera open---unsuccessfully---in New York. His first published volume, Poems, which met with some degree of approbation, appeared at this time. In 1884 he married Constance Lloyd, the daughter of an Irish lawyer, and within two years they had two sons. During this period he wrote, among others, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1891), his only novel, which scandalized many readers and was widely denounced as immoral. Wilde simultaneously dismissed and encouraged such criticism with his statement in the preface, "There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written or badly written. That is all." In 1891 Wilde published A House of Pomegranates, a collection of fantasy tales, and in 1892 gained commercial and critical success with his play, Lady Windermere's Fan He followed this comedy with A Woman of No Importance (1893), An Ideal Husband (1895), and his most famous play, The Importance of Being Earnest (1895). During this period he also wrote Salome, in French, but was unable to obtain a license for it in England. Performed in Paris in 1896, the play was translated and published in England in 1894 by Lord Alfred Douglas and was illustrated by Aubrey Beardsley. Lord Alfred was the son of the Marquess of Queensbury, who objected to his son's spending so much time with Wilde because of Wilde's flamboyant behavior and homosexual relationships. In 1895, after being publicly insulted by the marquess, Wilde brought an unsuccessful slander suit against the peer. The result of his inability to prove slander was his own trial on charges of sodomy, of which he was found guilty and sentenced to two years of hard labor. During his time in prison, he wrote a scathing rebuke to Lord Alfred, published in 1905 as De Profundis. In it he argues that his conduct was a result of his standing "in symbolic relations to the art and culture" of his time. After his release, Wilde left England for Paris, where he wrote what may be his most famous poem, The Ballad of Reading Gaol (1898), drawn from his prison experiences. Among his other notable writing is The Soul of Man under Socialism (1891), which argues for individualism and freedom of artistic expression. There has been a revived interest in Wilde's work; among the best recent volumes are Richard Ellmann's, Oscar Wilde and Regenia Gagnier's Idylls of the Marketplace , two works that vary widely in their critical assumptions and approach to Wilde but that offer rich insights into his complex character.

Kurzbiographie
Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900) was an Irish poet and playwright. After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, the early 1890s saw him become one of the most popular playwrights in London. He is best remembered for his epigrams, plays, and his novel The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Wilde's parents were Anglo-Irish intellectuals in Dublin. A young Wilde learned to speak fluent French and German. At university, Wilde read Greats; he demonstrated himself to be an exceptional classicist, first at Trinity College Dublin, then at Oxford. He became associated with the emerging philosophy of aestheticism, led by two of his tutors, Walter Pater and John Ruskin. After university, Wilde moved to London into fashionable cultural and social circles.

As a spokesman for aestheticism, he tried his hand at various literary activities: he published a book of poems, lectured in the United States and Canada on the new "English Renaissance in Art" and interior decoration, and then returned to London where he worked prolifically as a journalist. Known for his biting wit, flamboyant dress and glittering conversational skill, Wilde became one of the best-known personalities of his day. At the turn of the 1890s, he refined his ideas about the supremacy of art in a series of dialogues and essays, and incorporated themes of decadence, duplicity, and beauty into what would be his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890). The opportunity to construct aesthetic details precisely, and combine them with larger social themes, drew Wilde to write drama. He wrote Salome (1891) in French while in Paris but it was refused a licence for England due to an absolute prohibition on the portrayal of Biblical subjects on the English stage. Unperturbed, Wilde produced four society comedies in the early 1890s, which made him one of the most successful playwrights of late-Victorian London.

At the height of his fame and success, while The Importance of Being Earnest (1895) was still being performed in London, Wilde prosecuted the Marquess of Queensberry for criminal libel. The Marquess was the father of Wilde's lover, Lord Alfred Douglas. The libel trial unearthed evidence that caused Wilde to drop his charges and led to his own arrest and trial for gross indecency with men. After two more trials he was convicted and sentenced to two years' hard labour, the maximum penalty, and was jailed from 1895 to 1897. During his last year in prison, he wrote De Profundis (published posthumously in 1905), a long letter which discusses his spiritual journey through his trials, forming a dark counterpoint to his earlier philosophy of pleasure. On his release, he left immediately for France, never to return to Ireland or Britain. There he wrote his last work, The Ballad of Reading Gaol (1898), a long poem commemorating the harsh rhythms of prison life.

Oscar Wildes The picture of Dorian Gray ist zurecht ein unvergessener Klassiker. Wilde erschafft durch die sprachliche Brillianz lebendige Charakter, die so unterschiedlich und plastisch wirken, dass es schwer zu glauben ist, dass sie alle vom selben Autoren zum Leben erweckt wurden. Sein Roman zeigt, anhand einer unglaublichen Geschichte, die Schwächen des Menschen auf und die Abgründe, die sie hervorbringen und in die man stürzen kann. Das Buch ist von einer melancholischen Atmosphäre umnebelt, doch auch Wildes typischer Charme, findet sich in intelligenten humoristischen Szenen wieder.… (mehr)

Dorian Gray ist ein gut aussehender junger Mann, der auf einem Gemälde verewigt wird. Als er das vollendete Bild betrachtet, wir ihm bewusst, dass dies nur eine Momentaufnahme ist und er unweigerlich altern und das Gemälde seine jugendliche Schönheit behalten wird. Er wünscht sich zutiefst, dass es umgekehrt wäre. Und, sein Wunsch erfüllt sich. Dorian Gray lebt nun das Leben eines Dandys ohne Anzeichen einer Veränderung, sein Bildnis jedoch, quasi als Abbild seiner Seele, zeigt alle Spuren seines Lebenswandels.
Der Plot dieses Romans ist faszinierend und auch weite Strecken seiner Umsetzung. Vor allem die Persönlichkeitsveränderung, welche Dorian Gray durchmacht, empfand ich als interessant. Doch hat es für meinen Geschmack zu viele langatmige Passagen. Das Ende der Geschichte ist wiederum sehr gut gelungen.

Nach einiger Zeit hab ich es zum ersten geschafft das Buch anzufangen und zum zweiten zu Ende zu lesen. Das es so lange gedauert hat, es durchzulesen, lag nicht daran, dass es langweilig gewesen wäre. Obwohl es das an einigen Stellen durchaus war. Normalerweise genieße ich Wildes Bücher/Dramen immer sehr und nicht umsonst ist er der 'Prinz des Paradox'. Hier übrigens eine sehr interessante Parallele zu einer der Romanfiguren Sir Henry Wotton, der im Buch ebenfalls als 'Prinz des Paradox' bezeichnet wird. Überhaupt scheinen Henry und Wilde sich sehr ähnlich zu sein und da stellt sich doch die Frage, ob Wilde Henry Wotton nach seinem eigenem Vorbild angelegt hat? Auf jeden Fall sind die Ansichten dieses Gentleman sehr anregend und durchaus nicht langweilig, aber schwierig zu durchschauen.
Nichtsdestotrotz gab es einige Stellen im Roman, die eher langweilig denn interessant erschienen. Besonders die Stellen, in denen sich Dorian Gray in nahezu philosophische Gedanken geflüchtet hat, waren schwer zu verfolgen und auch nur bedingt interessant. Auch der Anfang war etwas, durch das man sich durchlesen musste. die Figur des Henry Wotton hat es noch amüsant gemacht und die Liebesgeschichte zwischen Dorian und Sibyl hat einen auch zum Weiterlesen ermuntert, doch es dauerte eine ganze Weile, bis überhaupt der eigentlich Grund des Buches, nämlich die Erhaltung der Jugend Dorian Grays durch sein Porträt, erreicht war. Dieses Bild hat Dorians wahren Charakter zum Vorschein gebracht, bzw. ihm ermöglicht diesen auszuleben. Allerdings bin ich nicht sicher, ob dieser Charakter überhaupt so vorhanden gewesen wäre, hätte er Henry Wotton nicht getroffen...
Das Ende war dann jedoch ein absolut gelungenes. Sehr plötzlich, wenn auch nicht vollkommen unerwartet, innerhalb weniger Seiten spitzte sich die Handlung zu. Ich musste die letzten Zeilen einige Male lesen, weil sie so nahezu vollkommen waren und mich dann trotzdem fast noch zwingen, dass Buch beiseite zu legen.
