(WANT TO READ) A philosophical novel by the writer Oscar Wilde published 1891. Dorian Gray subject of a full-length portrait in oil by an artist whom believes believes that Dorian’s beauty is responsible for the new mode in his art as a painter. 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 Picture of Dorian Gray" by Oscar Wilde. A classic Victorian fiction about a handsome and narcissistic hedonist who sells his soul so his beauty will never fade. Witty and fascinating. Wilde is one of my favourite authors of all time.
