    The Theory of Quotation by H. G. Wells is a short essay. H. G. Wells once different, humorous social satire and ironic.The nobler method of quotation is not to quote at all. For why should one repeat good things that are already written? Are not the words in their fittest context in the original? Clearly, then, your new setting cannot be quite so congruous, which is, forthwith, an admission of incongruity.

    The Picture Of Dorian Gray is the novel of the decadent 1890’s.  Wilde’s only full length novel, it is a thrilling, melodramatic tale of love, murder, thwarted revenge and final justice.  But in its pages Wilde also expressed his own distinctive views on art, life and beauty through Lord Henry Wotton, the immoral aristocrat who corrupts Dorian Gray.  In some ways both Dorian and Lord Henry are self-portraits of Wilde – not as he was but as he would have liked to appear. This adds to the novel’s power and poignancy.

    A Winter's Tale is set in Sicilia where the King, Leontes, is enjoying a visit by his friend the King of Bohemia.  When he wants to leave, he tries to persuade him unsuccessfully to stay.  Leontes then decides to ask his wife to try and get him to stay longer which she does.  He is then consumed by jealousy imaging that the reason she persuaded him so easily was because they were having an affair.  Inevitably no good comes from his irrational jealousy in Shakespeare’s tale.  This narrative version was written by Mary & Charles Lamb.
