Thank you very much. Here are some other sentences I'm still doubtful of (word choice).

1) Lord Henry believes the ageing process makes people sallow, hollow-cheecked and dull-eyed.
2) He suggests that Dorian should not give his life to the ignorant, the common, the vulgar.
3) According to him, their age needs in a new form of hedonism, that is the pursuit of pleasure as the greatest goal in life.
4) The power of Lord Henry’s words succeeds in dominating Dorian (playing with his mind, manipulating him) and making him live his life for art and forget moral responsibility.
5)When Dorian looks at the painting, he is quite moved, as if he sees himself for the first time. Recalling the words of Lord Henry, he first recognizes the extraordinary beauty and youth in the portrait and then is pained by the thought of losing it. He envies the figure in the painting and says that he would give his soul to be young forever as the painting will be.

  1. 3. their age needs OR their age's needs
    I'd rework that sentence. According to him, their age's needs in a new form of hedonism, or the pursuit of pleasure, is the greatest goal in life.
