Description

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.

‘How sad it is! I shall grow old, and horrid, and dreadful. But this picture will remain always young… If it was only the other way!’

Wilde’s first and only published novel recounts the story of handsome Dorian Gray who upon having his portrait painted desires that it will age and grow ugly while he may remain eternally beautiful. The painting, which reflects each of Gray’s sins and transgressions in its hideousness, haunts him until it finally becomes unbearable. In this dark tale of duplicity and mortality, Wilde creates a world where art and reality collide.
