The complex relationship between Dorian Gray and Basil Hallward
From the Picture of Dorian Gray
Dorian Gray is all my art to me now. His painting is the best work of my life.
Basil, this is extraordinary! I must see Dorian Gray.
Tell me, is Dorian Gray very fond of you?
I know he likes me but sometimes he is thoughtless and treats my soul as if it were a flower to put in his coat.
You like your art better than your friends. I am no more to you than a green bronze figure.
Dorian! Don't talk like that. I have never had such a friend as you, and I shall never have such another.
