Dorian očima Basila Hallwarda
Dorian a lord Henry Wotton
Dorianova změna
Strach z toho, čím se stal
Obraz přebírá hříchy
Život po smrti Sibyl Vaneové


„ Because of Lord Henry, Dorian becomes increasingly heartless, indulging in every kind of pleasure, whether moral or immoral. He seems to be in love with a young actress Sibyl Vane, who, overcome by her emotions for Dorian, decides that she can no longer act, wondering how she can pretend to love on the stage now that she has experienced the real thing.
