    Hi everyone.

    I'm trying to do an essay on Dorian Gray, and my question is based upon the idea of time not actually standing still for 'the beautiful hero of the novel'

    I've got a few points already, including:
    • Seasons changing throughout the novel
    • Dorian not actually being a hero
    • The portrait taking the sins for Dorian
    • The aesthetics being stood still, not time.

    Any help would be appreciated!
    Thanks x
