The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar WildeTitle: The Picture of Dorian Gray

Author: Oscar Wilde

Call #: WIL

A now-classic tale of eternal youth, this book tells the story of a young man whose portrait ages while he remains young. With time, Dorian becomes increasingly self-destructive and dissolute only to have his painting erase any physical repercussions. One thing that the painting can’t repair is Dorian’s conscience which weighs heavy with guilt and heavy with…murder! Subtle, possibly unnoticed Victorian references to sexuality and drugs make this book worth rereading.
