A Picture of Dorian Gray

I know I was poo-pooing Oscar Wilde earlier this week. I think the words I used were "speed bump". Well, apparently I was terribly, terribly wrong. Man, oh man. What a freaking great back half (and I mean that in the least possible gay way, and by "gay" I mean homosexual). I was actually a little bit frightened reading it.

1850ish-1940ish The pinnacle of world literature, if you ask me.

I tried to find a picture of Dorian Gray, but there were just a lot of very unfortunate pictures of some very unfortunate people. This one is nice — a German artist I guess. I can't read German. Anyway, I totally dig Gray's face in this one. It's like, "Whatcha talkin' bout, Willis?"
