Dorian Gray is the subject of a full-length portrait in oil by Basil Hallward, an artist who is impressed and infatuated by Dorian's beauty; he believes that Dorian's beauty is responsible for the new mode in his art as a painter. Through Basil, Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, and he soon is enthralled by the aristocrat's hedonistic worldview: that beauty and sensual fulfilment are the only things worth pursuing in life.Newly understanding that his beauty will fade, Dorian expresses the desire to sell his soul, to ensure that the picture, rather than he, will age and fade. The wish is granted, and Dorian pursues a libertine life of varied and amoral experiences, while staying young and beautiful; all the while his portrait ages and records every soul-corrupting sin.

A pivotal figure in nineteenth-century literature, Oscar Wilde was a multitalented and multifaceted writer. His large and diverse body of work includes immensely popular stage plays, the highly regarded novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, several collections of exquisitively crafted short fiction, critical essays that influenced how the world looks at art, and elegant verse. This 2012 leatherbound omnibus edition of Wilde's writing collects the full contents of his short-fiction collection Lord Arthur Savile's Crime and Other Stories, and his two collections of fairy tales for young readers, The Happy Prince and Other Tales and A House of Pomegranates. Also included is The Picture of Dorian Gray, a novel that scandalised Victorian England when it was published in 1891 and that has since been acknowledged a brilliant commentary on art and the society depicted in it. The volume concludes with all nine stage plays that Wilde finished in his lifetime, among them the masterpieces of wit and comedy, The Importance of Being Earnest and An Ideal Husband". Decorative, durable, and collectible, this book offers hours of reading pleasure and is an indispensible cornerstone for any home library.
