In this renowned work and his only novel, Oscar Wilde paints disturbing portrait of the effects of evil and depravity on a young dandy in late-19th-century England. Merging elements of Gothic horror and decadent French fiction, the novel centers on an arresting premise: As Dorian Gray delves deeper into a life of crime and unrefined sensuality, his body retains its flawless youth and vitality while the recently painted portrait of himself becomes more and more a hideous evidence of evil, which he manages to keep hidden from the world. For over a hundred years this spellbinding tale of suspense and horror has enjoyed massive popularity. It is surely one of Wilde's most important writings and among the classic literary achievements of its time.
This Fantasy Illustrated version is complete with over 20 Black and White Sketches from Wilde's own mystical and haunting Victorian Era.
