Wilde created a devastating depiction of the impact of wickedness and debauchery on a young aesthete in late-nineteenth-century England in this acclaimed masterpiece, his sole novel. The book revolves on a startling premise: while Dorian Gray slips into a life of crime and disgusting sensuality, his body retains pristine youth and energy, but his newly painted picture turns day by day into a horrific record of evil, which he must keep concealed from the world. This enthralling tale of terror and suspense has captivated audiences for nearly a century. It is considered one of Wilde's most important works, as well as one of the most classic examples of its genre.
