The Picture of Dorian Gray help with homework: In a letter to a friend concerning

In a letter to a friend concerning The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde wrote, “I am so glad you like that strange coloured book of mine: it contains much of me in it. Basil Hallward is what I think I am: Lord Henry what the world thinks of me: Dorian what I would like to be – in other ages, perhaps.” What does this assertion tell you about the way in which Wilde perceived himself? How does this perception affect the ways in which he draws the three central characters of the novel?
