PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY


PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY

OSCAR WILDE    Book Number: 23875    Product format: Paperback

This is a story of moral corruption. Although not shocking by the standards of the late 20th century, the book and its celebrated Preface, which contained the conclusion All art is quite useless, attracted such outraged reviews as Why go grubbing in muck-heaps? on its publication. The later, kinder judgenment of the DNB praised the work as being full of subtle impressionism and highly wrought epigram. Crafted in brilliant prose, the book is of lasting importance as a singular example of Wilde's brilliance applied to the novel. The text is taken from the Paris edition published in Montmartre, 1908. 192pp. Paperback.
