Enthralled by his own exquisite portrait, Dorian Gray 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 inthe eyes of polite society. Only his portrait bears the traces of his decadence.

The novel was a succès de scandale and the book was later used as evidence against Wilde at the Old Bailey in 1895. It has lost none of its power to fascinate and disturb.

Absolutne arcydzieło. Exquisite, born on a pavement of glittering and marring Mayfair. I'm in awe. Would there be more understanding and less vulgarity if people could mirror their vices in Wilde's corrupt and beautiful novel? I tend to believe so. PS. Try and compare two editions and corrections even if vague the author published (1890 and 1891). Tell a whole lot more about the period and TO-DAY.
