As the saying goes, “don’t judge a book by its cover”. In the 1890 novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, Irish poet Oscar Wilde tells a tale of a man whose outer beauty doesn’t represent the ugliness within. The novel begins with a well-known artist painting a picture of the handsome Dorian Gray. When Gray shows up to pick up his painting, he meets the artist’s friend, Lord Henry. Fascinated (吸引) by Henry’s approach to life, Gray begins to pursue pleasure before all else. Over time, Gray realizes that his painting grows old and ugly, while he remains young and beautiful.
