在《多利安·格雷的圖片》中,有哪些內容與露骨內容有關?


1

我正在閱讀奧斯卡·王爾德(Oscar Wilde)的多里安·格雷的圖片。我已經閱讀了前幾頁,我真的很佩服。

但是令我困擾的是,羅勒說諸如"我見到他[多利安·格雷],不見他就無法幸福"和"他也感到我們注定要被介紹"之類的話(沒有逐字記錄)。所以,我想知道這部小說是否發展為同性戀話題?我什麼都沒斷言,只是有幾點跡象,我想知道我的結論是否正確。

P.S .:請不要採取任何私人或政治手段;我只想知道,因為Google搜索給了我一些非常明確的結果以及一些博主的個人評論。

Sex between two men is implied, but not outright stated

From the book (Basil to Dorian):

"There was that wretched boy in the Guards who committed suicide. You were his great friend. There was Sir Henry Ashton, who had to leave England, with a tarnished name. You and he were inseparable."

However, yes, it is clear that Basil is in love (or at least heavily infatuated) with Dorian, and the subtext was blatant enough that, as per this article,

At the Wilde trials of 1895, the opposing attorneys read aloud from “Dorian Gray,” calling it a “sodomitical book.” Wilde went to prison not because he loved young men but because he flaunted that love, and “Dorian Gray” became the chief exhibit of his shamelessness.
