Languages of publication
The paper addresses Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray and its specific confessional strategy, which is characterized by aestheticization of personal experience. The choice of means is correspondent to intellectual, aesthetic and ethic positions developed by Wilde as a critic in his theoretical works. Confessional Wilde puts forward style, imagination and reinvention of the Self with the help of masks, scripts and allusions to literary and non-literary sources. It is claimed that there are various allusions to Greek life and its cultural reinvestigation in Wilde’s time, and to different aspects of Christian aesthetics and mythology.
