the Depiction of Dorian Grey

The show Penny Dreadful shows an indulgent man, uncaring to suffering, the dalliances with men, the new fashion music, the blood soaked dances with the raised corpse of a prostitute, these don’t alter the painting, they do nothing to change the horrific goblin depicted in his portrait. It is acts of murder, acts of cruelty dismissal that cause the eyes of the creature to fall on Dorian.
