In the wealthy and vain hedonist Dorian Gray, London painter Basil Hallward has found his muse. Only when the portrait of Dorian begins to age, while the man himself remains untouched by time, do they realize they may have made a deal with the devil.
Oscar Wilde&;s only novel takes a witty, philosophical, and harrowing look at our obsession with youth and the price we pay for it.

In 1892, Wilde's first play, Lady Windermere's Fan, opened to widespread acclaim; it was followed by A Woman of No Importance, Salome, An Ideal Husband, and The Importance of Being Earnest. The influence of Oscar Wilde-one of the most celebrated, controversial, and unconventional writers of the nineteenth century-is felt to this day.
