Портрет Дориана Грея Audiobook

Портрет Дориана Грея

Author: Oscar Wilde Narrator: Maxim Suslov Release Date: January 2015

'Портрет Дориана Грея'- единственный опубликованный роман Оскара Уайльда. Впервые напечатан в июле 1890 года. После публикации романа в обществе разразился скандал. Вся английская критика осудила его как аморальное произведение, а некоторые критики требовали подвергнуть его запрету, а автора романа — судебному наказанию. Уайльда обвиняли в оскорблении общественной морали. Однако обычными читателями роман был принят восторженно. По жанру — это интеллектуальный роман, написанный в декадентском стиле. Художник Бэзил Холлуорд пишет портрет молодого и прекрасного Дориана Грея. Любуясь своим изображением, юноша выражает желание, чтобы портрет старел, а он всегда оставался молодым. Случайно он знакомится с другом Бэзила, лордом Генри, саркастичным гедонистом, презирающим традиционные викторианские ценности, и попадает под влияние его порочных идей. Аудиокнига. Зарубежная классика Переводчик: М. Ричардс © ИДДК

Once upon a time two poor Woodcutters were making their way home through a great pine-forest. It was winter, and a night of bitter cold. The snow lay thick upon the ground, and upon the branches of the trees: the frost kept snapping the little twigs on either side of them, as they passed: and when they came to the Mountain-Torrent she was hanging motionless in air, for the Ice-King had kissed her.

The Soul of Man Audiobook

The Soul of Man

Author: Oscar Wilde Narrator: Paul Murphy Release Date: March 2019

Published originally as 'The Soul of Man Under Socialism,' this is not so much a work of sober political analysis; rather it can be summed up as a rhapsodic manifesto on behalf of the Individual. Socialism having deployed technology to liberate the whole of humanity from soul-destroying labour, the State obligingly withers away to allow the free development of a joyful, anarchic hedonism... 'Is this Utopian? A map of the world that does not include Utopia is not worth even glancing at, for it leaves out the one country at which Humanity is always landing.' Far from abandoning the epigram in favour of the slogan, Wilde wittily assails several of his favourite targets: the misguided purveyors of philanthropy; life-denying ascetics of various kinds; the army of the half-educated who constitute themselves the enemies of Art - and those venal popular journalists who cater to them...

Author: Oscar Wilde Narrator: David Shaw-Parker, Jake Urry Release Date: January 2020

Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was born on the 16th October 1854 in Dublin, Ireland. The son of Dublin intellectuals Oscar proved himself an outstanding classicist at Trinity College and then at Oxford. Wilde then moved to London and its fashionable cultural and social circles. With his biting wit, flamboyant dress, and glittering conversation, Wilde became one of the most well-known personalities of his day.His only novel, ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ was published in 1890 and he then moved on to writing for the stage with ‘Salome’ in 1891. His society comedies were enormous hits and turned him into one of the most successful writers of late Victorian London.Whilst his masterpiece, ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’, was on stage in London, Wilde had the Marquess of Queensberry, the father of his lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, prosecuted for libel. The trial unearthed evidence that caused Wilde to drop his charges and led to his own arrest and trial for gross indecency. He was convicted and imprisoned for two years hard labour. It was to break him.On release he left for France. There he wrote his last work, ‘The Ballad of Reading Gaol’ in 1898. He died destitute in Paris at the age of forty-six sipping champagne a friend had brought with the line ‘Alas I am dying beyond my means’.
