Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

he Picture of Dorian Gray is the only published novel by Oscar Wilde, appearing as the lead story in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine on 20 June 1890, printed as the July 1890 issue of this magazine. Wilde later revised this edition, making several alterations, and adding new chapters; the amended version was published by Ward, Lock, and Company in April 1891. The novel tells of a young man named Dorian Gray, the subject of a painting by artist Basil Hallward. Basil is impressed by Dorian's beauty and becomes infatuated with him, believing his beauty is responsible for a new mode in his art. Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, a friend of Basil's, and becomes enthralled by Lord Henry's world view.

I loved paradoxes used in the book and also Lord Henry´s statements were briliant. They were horrifyingly true. really really good book!

this is so cool! such an eye opener to our world that uses words synonymously yet to Mr. Oscar Wilde's perspective there is a great difference the words are used. he is just way awesome!
