This project proposes to study the question of ideological values and how these influence the aesthetics and style constituents of discourse and are manifested by means of different genres. This project aims to examine both the novelistic discourse of The Picture of Dorian Gray of Oscar Wilde, as two adaptations title eponymous for cinema, of referred to the work, being 2009 of Oliver Parker and another of 1945 of Albert Lewin. The reflection that guides this project is the thematic human vanity, once it is central in the three texts that compose the corpus of research. Through it, is possible to reflect on how the language is ideological and in the words of the Russian philosopher (Bakhtin), "reflects and refracts" social values as their representation in semiosis, figurativization differently in each work, arising both from the style of each author-creator as the difference in time-space (chronotype) of each production in particular when taking into consideration that these are genres (literature - romance, and cinema - film) distinct. The relevance of this project is justified by trying to provide a reflective study about the language dialogic that can contribute to contemporary studies of speech and genre. The central idea is to reflect about individual and collective social values through analysis of linguistic elements and translinguistics of the speeches listed as corpus research, based on the concepts of dialogue, discourse, subject, chronotype, genre, and an ideological sign of dialogical philosophy of language of the Bakhtin Circle. Believed to this research will make possible a greater comprehension about the specific embodiment of discursive acts of stylistic each work and its dialogical relations. (AU)
