Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis

In this classic gothic fiction novel, a young man, Dorian Gray, lets a picture of himself change his life forever. Dorian Gray wishes to sell his soul in order to keep his beauty. This wish comes true when the picture begins to age while Dorian remains youthful. As a result, Dorian starts down a path of destruction and surprises.

Amazon.com Review
"Oh! In what a wild hour of madness he had killed his friend! How ghastly the mere memory of the scene! He saw it all again. Each hideous detail came back to him with added horror. Out of the black cave of time, terrible and swathed in scarlet, rose the image of his sin." In their ideal of an exquisitely sensitive temperament that thrills to fine shadings in sensation, the principles of the aesthetic (or "decadent") movement are well suited to the tale of terror. No story exemplifies this better than Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray. The sparkling wit and zest for life of Wilde's characters combine with cold-blooded acts of horror to generate a deliciously twisted sense of elegance and evil, civilization and degradation. Oscar Wilde, like Edgar Allan Poe, shows us that what we find loathsome and frightening can also be beautiful.
