Dorian Gray Background Info

Transcript: Background Info by Erin H. and Erinn R. The Picture of Dorian Gray Wilde was born on the 16th of October 1854 and he died on the 30th of November 1900. During his life he was one of Londons most popular playwrites. He was known for his wit and his flamboyant way of dressing. He refined his ideas about the supremacy of art in a series of dialogues and essays. He then incorporated themes of beauty and aesthetisim into his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890). It was rumored that Wilde, although married with children, was gay and had a lover. Oscar Wilde Oscar Wilde Pictures of Wilde Pictures of Wilde Aesthetisism Aestheticism is an art movement that supports the emphasis of aesthetic values more than social political themes. It focuses more on being beautiful besides having a deeper meaning (art for art's sake). Oscar Wilde was a spokesman for aestheicism and published many literary works and poems in support of this movement. The picture of Dorian Gray is his only novel he wrote representing this movement. The Aesthetic Movement In Victorian London the population surged from 1 million to 6 million from 1800 to 1900. There was a lot of new development in construction of new affluent neighborhoods and at the same time horribly overcrowded slums. It was at this time that london got their underground sewage system and Metropolitan police force. Families were large because birth control and contraception were not big at the time, and health improved so children lived past youth. Morals in this era involved secual restraint before marriage, low tolerance of crime and a strict social code of conduct, mostly for the wealthy. Victorian London Victorian London The Wealthy The wealthy during this period enjoyed lavish clothes, lavish homes and lavish lifestyles over all. The Wealthy Poor Victorian London Many people were less fortunate in victorian london, living on the streets and in slums. Most famously prostitutes and women in Whitechapel were killed by serial killer Jack the Ripper. Poor Victorian London Written by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1886, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is the story of a London lawyer named Gabriel who investigates strange occurences between his old friend, Dr. Jekyll, and the evil Mr. Hyde set in Victorian london. The phrase Jekyll and Hyde has come to mean a person who is vastly different in moral character from one situation to the next Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
