The Picture of Dorian Gray Paperback
by Oscar Wilde
Part of the Alma Classics Evergreens series
Dorian Gray is having his picture painted by Basil Hallward, who is charmed by his looks.
But when Sir Henry Wotton visits, and seduces Dorian into the worship of youthful beauty with an intoxicating speech, Dorian makes a wish he will live to regret: that all the marks of age will now be reflected in the portrait, rather than on Dorian's own face.
The stage is now set for a masterful tale about appearance, reality, art, life, truth, fiction and the ultimate burden of conscience.
