Publisher Description

Contains 10 illustrations.

The Picture of Dorian Gray is a timeless literary classic that explores the consequences of vanity, decadence, and the pursuit of eternal youth. Written by the witful Oscar Wilde, this novel introduces readers to the captivating and enigmatic Dorian Gray, a young man of extraordinary beauty.

As Dorian enters the glamorous and hedonistic world of Victorian London, he becomes the subject of a mesmerizing portrait painted by the talented artist Basil Hallward. Dorian makes a Faustian pact that his portrait will age and bear the burden of his moral decay while he remains perpetually youthful and untouched by the passage of time.

Wilde's eloquent prose takes readers on a journey through the dark underbelly of indulgence, as Dorian's life becomes a whirlwind of excess, pleasure, and moral corruption. His portrait, hidden from the world, becomes a grotesque reflection of his inner depravity, while Dorian's outward appearance remains untouched by his debauchery.

This novel is a thought-provoking exploration of the human condition, the nature of art, and the consequences of a life lived without moral restraint. Oscar Wilde's sharp wit and social commentary shine through, making The Picture of Dorian Gray a compelling and enduring work that continues to captivate readers with its themes of beauty, morality, and the price of eternal youth.
