Picture of Dorian Gray
Oscar Wilde (au); Tony Ross (il). “The Picture of Dorian Gray” is Wilde’s fable of a fashionable young man who attains eternal youth & beauty while only his portrait grows old, hidden away in a locked room. Despite the young man’s disintegration into a life of crime, his face never reflects the moral decay. Instead, the portrait records every deed by turning his once handsome features into a hideous mask. Written with Wilde’s trademark biting sense of humor & his gift for shrewd observation, the book caused a scandal when it appeared in 1890, & Wilde was accused of having a corrupting influence. This ed., with charming illus. & extended captions, provides background info. on the life of Wilde & his contemp’s. to depictions of London’s art world in the late 19th century.
