The Picture of Dorian Gray (Modern Library Classics) by Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wildes story of a fashionable young man who sells his soul for eternal youth and beauty is one of his most popular works. Written in Wildes characteristically dazzling manner, full of stinging epigrams and shrewd observations, the tale of Dorian Grays 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 Wildes homosexual liaisons, trials that resulted in his imprisonment. Of the books 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.
