I am reading it. It's quite long and this is a little problem, because it takes so much time, but I think it worth it.
Sorry, but I didn't menage to find anything. My copy get lost somewhere ):
Oh, yes. I shall be glad to see it here too. It will be great!
I have read it. I think I finished it in October. I shall check and I shall try to find something too.
That’s a good question, Cien! I think that if he wasn’t seeing his portrait changing he wouldn’t be at that state of evil. Yes, probably the most spoiling effect on his personality has the possibility to make everything without to be punished for these acts. So I think after it was the knowledge of the power of the portrait.
THat's way it is quite hard to say how will be with the others. We can jugde when they are humans, but when they aren't we can't predict what is going to become of theirs personalities.
In the way you put the question, Cien, Dorian starts to remind me of Macbeth. I am not quite sure what will be with the other people, but i actually think mine is going to be as Dorian's. The problem is that freadom in all it's forms is extremely dangerous gift. And freadom of death is even more dangerous. With this portrait Dorian was delibareted of his humanity, because the only common thing with people are birth and death. And with the opportunity of immortality Dorian isn't human any more. And that's why his portrait, his soul, becomes more and more unhuman with every single day.
