Homework Help: English

Posted by Henry1 on Wednesday, April 27, 2011 at 3:44pm.

In my previous post I included the following sentence checked by Bob. I can't understand the correction.
1) They have no boots, so their feet bleed (correction: bled? Why is the past needed?).

I did other corrections myself. Can you check them, please?

1)The Picture of Dorian Gray told about a painter, Basil, who, fascinated by the beauty of the young Dorian, decided to portray him. When the portrait was ended, Dorian, who was influenced by the words of Lord Henry, wished the portrait grew old in his place.
2)Correction: The Picture of Dorian Gray is about (or tells the story of) a painter, Basil, who, fascinated by the beauty of the young Dorian, decides to portray him. When the portrait is finished, Dorian, influenced by the words of Lord Henry, wished the portrait grew old in his place.
3)In his panegyric on beauty, Lord Henry said that beauty is a form of genius, that is higher than genius itself because beauty needs no explanation.
4)Correction: Lord Henry defines beauty as a form of genius, which is higher than genius itself because it needs no explanation.
5)The novel is linked to the myth of Faust, who gave his soul to the devil in order to obtain knowledge.
6)Like Dorian, Faust sells his soul to the devil in order to obtain absolute knowledge.
7)After that Dorianís desire was realized, Dorian could live a life of sins and pleasures.
8)Correction: After Dorianís desire for eternal youth is satisfied, Dorian leads a sinful life giving in to any kind of pleasure.
8)When he saw the picture old and ugly, that showing his bad conscience, Dorian stabs the picture with the same stab that he had used to kill Basil.
8)When he sees the picture becoming old and ugly (recording the signs of time) Dorian stabs the picture with the same dagger he used to kill Basil.
9)The narrator never intervenes or refers directly to the reader (is the position of directly correct?)
