The Picture of Dorian Gray, Hardback

The Picture of Dorian Gray Hardback

Edited by Robert Mighall

Part of the Penguin Clothbound Classics series



Part of "Penguin's" beautiful hardback "Clothbound Classics" series, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith, these delectable and collectible editions are bound in high-quality colourful, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design.

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 in the eyes of polite society.

Only his portrait bears the traces of his decadence.

The novel was a succes 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.
