Housing in Britain

Housing in Britain

Housing in Britain – best value for money.

Over half the people in Britain live in their own houses, about a third live in property rented from the local council and one in eight live in privately-rented accommodation. The total number of dwellings is more than 22 million and houses are much more common than flats. More than 40% of families live in a home built after 1945. Although the number of houses built during the 1980s went down (especially in the public housing sector traditionally provided by local authorities) the number of people owning their own homes has more than trebled in the last 35 years. Under the conservative government many people who previously rented their homes from the local council were given the opportunity to buy them. There tax incentives for people who buy their own houses. more »

«Портрет Дориана Грея» Оскар Уайльд

The Picture Of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde

«Портрет Дориана Грея» Оскара Уайльда вышел в свет в 1890 году и сразу приобрел скандальную славу и разноречивые оценки современников. Произведение считается шедевром английской художественной прозы. «Портрет Дориана Грея» является глубоко нравственной книгой, где Искусство мстит за попранную Красоту и преданную Любовь.

Интересен тот факт,  что роман был написан всего лишь за три недели!

Так же рекомендую посмотреть последнюю экранизацию романа.
