The Picture of Dorian Gray, Paperback / softback Book

The Picture of Dorian Gray Paperback / softback

Part of the Evergreens series

Paperback / softback

Description

Dorian Gray is having his picture painted by Basil Hallward, who is charmed by his looks.

But when Sir Henry Wotton visits and seduces Dorian into the worship of youthful beauty with an intoxicating speech, Dorian makes a wish he will live to regret: that all the marks of age will now be reflected in the portrait rather than on Dorian's own face.

The stage is now set for a masterful tale about appearance, reality, art, life, truth, fiction and the burden of conscience. Oscar Wilde's only full-length novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray is a lasting gem of sophisticated wit and playfulness, which brings together all the best elements of his talent in a reinterpretation of the Faustian myth.
