About: Author: Oscar Wilde, Peter Ackroyd Goodreads Rating: 4.07 Publisher: Penguin Classics About: 'If it were I who were to always young and the picture to grow old … I would give my soul for it.'The wish uttered by Dorain Gray as he gazes on his portrait forms the basis of this brialliant and disturbing story of a gilded and spoilt hedonist who, Faust-like, is willing to sell his soul for his beauty.First oublished to scandalised protest in 1890, Oscar Wilde's fantastic melodrama was widely condemned by his contemporaries as ana ffront to the values of polite society. It has since become one of his most celebrated works, a brilliant example of his power as a storyteller and of his flamboyant wit and aestheticism.
