The Picture Of Dorian Gray And Other Writings from the Author: Oscar Wilde. Dorian Gray's extraordinary beauty wins the admiration of an artist who begins painting portraits of him, all but one depicting him as an ancient hero. This single portrait is of Dorian in his very essence; an honest depiction of his character and beauty. But when someone tells Dorian that beauty fades, he begins to see the portrait as a menacing thing, which will inevitably remind him of the beauty he once had. Dorian pledges his soul for a critical exchange: that the picture bears the burden of ageing and dishonour, and that he stays young and beautiful forever. As Dorian indulges in the most hedonistic of lifestyles, exploiting his own beauty and completely disbarring all morality, the portrait grows uglier and older while he shows no signs of physical degradation. Dorian Grayis a story of extreme selfishness, masked by the appeal of eternal beauty.

Picture Of Dorian Gray from the Author: Oscar Wilde. This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition? includes a glossary and reader?s notes to help the modern reader contend with Wilde?s many allusions and his complex approach to the human condition.Oscar Wilde?s only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, first appeared in 1891. Dorian Gray, a handsome young man, falls in with a group of ?friends,? whose amoral philosophies he finds quite appealing. After he has his portrait painted, his frivolity and general demeanor degenerate into wickedness, but only the portrait bears the effects of his descent into decadence and serves as a powerful symbol of Gray?s internal ruin. Dorian himself, however, remains as young and unspoiled as the day he first sat for the painting. Wilde?s exploration of life without limits or consequences shocked its late-Victorian audience and remains highly un-settling to modern readers. We, like Dorian, are forced to reconsider whether total freedom and absolute knowledge are really worth their costs.
