Week 7 Questions

In preparation for the seminar on The Picture of Dorian Gray, think about:

  • What ideas about Art does the novel put forward? Think about the connections that can be drawn with Pater's aesthetic theory in particular. Is "all art quite useless" and why/not in the terms of Wilde's novel?
  • The relationship between art and life; where does morality fit within this? What issues about im/morality and art does the novel raise?
  • Wilde centres the representation of masculinity, masculine culture, and masculine sexuality as much more prominent themes than the novels studied thus far; why do you think this might be, and in what ways does the representation of masculinity differ from previous texts?
