Verb: Mood: Conditional II

1. Read the passage from 0. Wilde's novel1 The Picture of Dorian Gray' paying attention to the use of Conditional II; reproduce the pas­sage:

(Dorian Gray remained young and beautiful but his portrait changed as he grew older or did something shameful.)

A new life! That was what he wanted. That was what he was waiting for. Perhaps it had begun already. He would never again spoil innocence. He would be good.

He began to wonder if the portrait in the locked room had changed. Was it still as horrible as it had been? Perhaps if his life became pure, the face in the portrait would become beautiful again. He would go and look.

He took the lamp from the table and went upstairs. As he opened the door, a smile of happiness passed across his young face. Yes, he would be good, and the ugly thing he had locked away would not frighten him any more. He felt happier already.

He went in quietly, locking the door behind him. Walking straight over to the portrait, he took off the purple curtain that was covering it. An ugly cry of pain came from him. He could see no change. The thing was still hateful —- more hateful even, than before (O.Wilde).
