Oscar Wilde's only novel tells the story of Dorian Gray, a vain man so obsessed with his hedonistic lifestyle he is willing to sell his soul. Ensuring that a portrait of himself will age while he remains youthful, Dorian pursues a life of debauchery, but his actions soon take him past the point of redemption. Controversial and frequently banned, THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY is a fascinating exploration of conscience and morality.

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'How sad it is! I shall grow old, and horrid, and dreadful. But this picture will remain always young If it was only the other way!' Wilde's first and only published novel recounts the story of handsome Dorian Gray who upon having his portrait painted desires that it will age and grow ugly while he may remain eternally beautiful. The painting, which reflects each of Gray's sins and transgressions in its hideousness, haunts him until it finally becomes unbearable. In this dark tale of duplicity and mortality, Wilde creates a world where art and reality collide."

Lord Henry Wooton, dieser geistreich-zynische Dandy, ist es, der den zu Beginn der Handlung etwa zwanzigjährigen, unverdorbenen und faszinierend schönen Dorian Gray zum Hedonismus, zum rücksichtslosen Ausleben seiner Jugend verführt. Damit weckt er in ihm das Verlangen, ewig jung und schön zu bleiben, um alle Sinnenfreuden auskosten zu können. Der mit der Intensität eines Gebetes ausgesprochene Wunsch Dorian Grays, statt seiner möge das Bildnis, das Basil Hallward von ihm gemalt hat, altern - ein Wunsch, für dessen Erfüllung er seine Seele zu geben bereit ist -, wird ihm gewährt.
