Beauty is terror. Whatever we call beautiful we quiver before it.

The quote is not from "The picture of Dorian Gray" but from "The secret history" but it fits regardless. 
Anyways, Oscar Wilde and his characters have an interesting perspective on art and life and I enjoyed seeing things from a different perspective. The writing was beautiful, the plot haunting.
I love that the book is categorised as LGBTQ+ and I think Wilde would be even more excited!
