THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY: Classic Decadent Novel By Oscar Wilde


THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY: Classic Decadent Novel
By Oscar Wilde

Dorian Gray: decadent archetype and anti-hero of Oscar Wilde's novel, an underground classic which scandalized society upon its publication in 1890.

Dorian Gray is the debauched libertine who retains a veneer of eternal youth through decades of increasingly outlandish vice, depravity and corruption, while a portrait painting of him ages and rots in an attic.

Presented in its rare original incarnation, the Lippincott edition with an appendix of samples of Wilde's later revisions. Containing elements of dangerous sexual practices, drug abuse and supernatural horror it is Wilde's most extreme creation - a true classic of renegade literature.
