The Picture of Dorian Gray, Paperback

Description

Enthralled by his own exquisite portrait, Dorian Gray exchanges his soul for eternal youth and beauty.

Influenced by his friend Lord Henry Wotton, he is drawn into a corrupt double life; indulging his desires in secret while remaining a gentleman in the eyes of polite society.

Only his portrait bears the traces of his decadence.

The novel was a succes de scandale and the book was later used as evidence against Wilde at the Old Bailey in 1895.

It has lost none of its power to fascinate and disturb.
