One of my favourite things about Dorian Gray is that it's just about influenced everything popular culture for so long.

Indeed, Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray is pretty much the epitome of "sensationalized" narratives that so frightened people at the time - and it works, in some ways, as a history lesson of all that craziness. And the BBC just made it into another film!.

But, then again, it's still relevant. That's what makes Wilde so spectacular - he really was so ahead of the times that he's still kicking around.
