Hi,

It has been quite a while since I last posted here. Almost six weeks. July didn’t begin well for me reading wise, so I decided I needed a break from reading and book related things. 278 more words

The Picture of Dorian Gray Costumes

Long time no post. Sorry about that, I’m the worst at updating.

Books & Manga; Some of my Recent Purchases

Generally my day to day entertainment choices come in cycles. I’ll obsessively watch anime for a week, then switch to compulsive¬†gaming and so on. I’d been ignoring books for just a little while and felt like some online shopping was in order to rectify this horrible situation. 355 more words

Wilde-erness | The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

“Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic.”

“I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.”

-Oscar Wilde

Inspiration

The Picture of Dorian Gray

Currently I’m up to chapter 5, and so far…this is what I expected from Wilde. The other stories written by Wilde (The Happy Prince & The Decay of Lying) encompasses both fantasy and realism…I love his use of imagery especially in The Decay of Lying. Great read!!!
