Discussion question – The Picture of Dorian Gray:

Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray has much to say about hedonism, and certainly demonstrates the outworkings of that philosophy. Use the plot details and dialogue of the novel to determine the author’s attitude toward hedonism. Does Wilde emerge as an advocate of what Lord Henry calls the New Hedonism, or does the novel serve as a cautionary tale against it?
