Annotation

  • The handsome appearance of dissolute, young Dorian Gray remains unchanged while the features in his portrait become distorted as his degeneration progresses.
  • Presents classic works of literature with a clean, modern aesthetic, including foil stamping on a heat-burnished cover, a smaller trim size and specially designed endpapers. Original.

Summary

  • Canterbury Classics gives a new look to this controversial classic!

    The Picture of Dorian Gray is a familiar story of greed, sin, and arrogance. A young man, infatuated with his own handsomeness and youth as depicted in a perfect portrait, makes a bargain he will come to regret. No one can save him from his appetite for pleasure and his awful fate--not the man who idolizes him, not the woman who loves him, and not even himself!

     

    Published in 1890, The Picture of Dorian Gray is Oscar Wilde&;s only novel. At first the subject of intense controversy, it has endured as a classic for years. This Canterbury Classics edition includes the beloved story as well as a special heat-burnished cover, foil stamping, and designed endpapers in an easy-to-carry package.

     

    A cautionary tale of innocence sacrificed for the sake of vice, The Picture of Dorian Gray is a classic whose lessons are still relevant today.
