When first published, The Picture of Dorian Gray was regarded as dangerously modern in its portrayal of fashionable fin de siecle decadence. In Wilde's updated version of the Faust story, the tempter is Lord Henry Wotton, who lives selfishly for amoral pleasure; Dorian's good angel or conscience is the portrait painter Basil Hallward. The book highlights the tension between the polished surface of high society and secret life of vice led by many of its members. The world's greatest works of literature are now avaialble in these beautiful keepsake volumes. Bound in real cloth, and featuring gilt edges and ribbon markers, these beautifully produced books are a wonderful way to build a handsome library of classic literature. These are the essential novels that belong in every home. They'll transport readers to imaginary worlds and provide excitement, entertainment, and enlightenment for years to come. All of these novels feature attractive illustrations and have an unequalled period feel that will grace the library, the bedside table or bureau.
