Enthralled by his own exquisite portrait, Dorian Gray exchanges his soul
for eternal youth and beauty. Influenced by his friend Lord Henry Wotton,
he is drawn into a corrupt double life; indulging his desires in secret
while remaining a gentleman inthe eyes of polite society. Only his portrait
bears the traces of his decadence. The novel was a succos de scandale and
the book was later used as evidence against Wilde at the Old Bailey in
1895. It has lost none of its power to fascinate and disturb.
