Enamoured by the beauty of Dorian Gray the sensitive artist Basil Hallward paints in oil a full-length portrait of the protagonist. Sitting there Gray listens to the hedonistic worldviews of Hallward s friend Lord Henry Wotton and wants to stay young forever to pursue his epicurean ideals. He wishes his portrait to age instead of himself. Later, when he dumps his actress friend Sybil Vane Gray notices a change of expression in his portrait. He knows that his wish has been granted. w nothing will keep him from leading the life of a libertine. The Picture of Dorian Gray is a tour de force in which Wilde intricately explores the idea of “art for art s sake.” Published in 1890 it is his only novel and arguably his best work.

About the Author

Oscar Fingal OFlahertie Wills Wilde was an Irish playwright, poet and author of numerous short stories and one novel. Known for his biting wit, and a plentitude of aphorisms, he became one of the most successful playwrights of the late Victorian era in London, and one of the greatest celebrities of his day. Several of his plays continue to be widely performed, especially The Importance of Being Earnest.

As the result of a widely covered series of trials, Wilde suffered a dramatic downfall and was imprisoned for two years hard labour after being convicted of "gross indecency" with other men. After Wilde was released from prison he set sail for Dieppe by the night ferry. He never returned to Ireland or Britain, and died in poverty. > <
