About This Book
Oscar Wilde's story of a fashionable young man who sells his soul for eternal
youth and beauty is one of his most popular works. Written in Wilde's
characteristically dazzling manner, full of stinging epigrams and shrewd
observations, the tale of Dorian Gray's moral disintegration caused something of
a scandal when it first appeared in 1890. Wilde was attacked for his decadence
and corrupting influence, and a few years later the book and the aesthetic/moral
dilemma it presented became issues in the trials occasioned by Wilde's
homosexual liaisons, trials that resulted in his imprisonment. Of the book's
value as autobiography, Wilde noted in a letter, "Basil Hallward is what I think
I am: Lord Henry what the world thinks me: Dorian what I would like to be--in
other ages, perhaps."
