    "The Picture of Dorian Gray" is Oscar Wilde's classic tale of the moral decline of its title character, Dorian Gray. When Dorian has his portrait painted by Basil Hallward and wishes that he would stay young while his picture changes, his wish comes true. In exchange for this Dorian gives up his soul and, as he ages, the bad deeds that he commits are reflected in his painting and not on him. "The Picture of Dorian Gray", arguably Wilde's most popular work, was considered quite scandalous when it was first published in the late 1800s in Victorian England.

    Oscar Wilde created his final and most lasting play, one of the comic masterpieces of all time, The Importance of Being Earnest, in 1895. It is a farce playing with love, religion, and truth as it tells the tale of two men, Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, who bend the truth in order to add excitement to their lives. Jack invents an imaginary brother, Ernest, whom he uses as an excuse to escape from his dull country home and gallivant in town.

    This is Oscar Wilde's tale of the American family moved into a British mansion, Canterville Chase, much to the annoyance of its tired ghost. The family - which refuses to believe in him - is in Wilde's way a commentary on the British nobility of the day - and on the Americans, too. The tale, like many of Wilde's, is rich with allusion, but ends as sentimental romance.

Doch auf seinem gemalten Porträt verbirgt sich die grauenvolle Wahrheit.

    Das Leben als Gespenst ist kein leichtes. Als wäre es nicht genug, auf ewig in alten Gemäuern festzusitzen und dazu verdammt zu sein, mit Ketten zu rasseln, Teppichen mit Blutflecken zu besudeln und allerlei anderen Schabernack zu treiben. Als die sehr moderne und so gar nicht ängstliche Familie des amerikanischen Botschafters Hiram B. Otis nach auf Canterville einzieht, wird das Leben für Hausgeist Sir Simon zur Hölle. Schnell wird er selbst zum verzweifelten Opfer von Stolperfäden, Butterfallen und Gespensteratrappen und herunterstürzenden Wasserkrügen.

    Keats. A short life but a legacy of works that few, if any, can rival. And of course his end was to be tragically Romantic. Keats was returning one night to his home in Hampstead when he coughed. He coughed a single drop of blue blood upon his hand and said, ‘I know the colour of that blood, it is arterial blood, it is my death warrant, I must die’. And so it was that tuberculosis took its slow, devastating hold.
