Waterstones Says

Wilde’s alluring, evergreen adult fairy-tale explores what happens to the young, hedonistic protagonist’s soul as he realises his attractive appearance liberates him from moral bounds.

Oscar Wilde's alluring novel of decadence and sin was a succes de scandale on publication.

It follows Dorian Gray who, enthralled by his own exquisite portrait, exchanges his soul for eternal youth and beauty. Influenced by his friend Lord Henry Wotton, he is drawn into a corrupt double life, indulging his desires in secret while remaining a gentleman in the eyes of polite society.

Only his portrait bears the traces of his depravity. This definitive edition includes a selection of contemporary reviews condemning the novel's immorality.

“Fantastic!”

I studied this book for my Higher Personal Study and it was great. The character of Dorian Gray is brilliant to study particularly his progression. It is also a wonderful page-turner and Oscar Wilde's writing... More
