Description

Artist Basil Hallward has sent a gift. A portrait that perfectly captures young Dorian Gray's handsome features. When Lord Henry tempts Dorian with a new lifestyle of hedonism and pleasure, he realizes that he would sell his soul for an eternity of debauchery. Oscar Wilde's only published novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray is a dark and sinful story of excess and vice. Explore Wilde's lavish world of Gothic fiction, and his study of lost innocence, full of captivating characters with this gorgeous edition. Complete and unabridged, The Portrait of Dorian Gray is an essential collectible that is both elegant and portable.
