Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

Book Description

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY IRVINE WELSH. Dorian is a good-natured young man until he discovers the power of his own exceptional beauty. As he gradually sinks deep into a frivolous, glamorous world of selfish luxury, he apparently remains physically unchanged by the stresses of his corrupt lifestyle and untouched by age.

Happy Prince & Other Stories by Oscar Wilde Happy Prince & Other Stories, Hardback (March 2017)

The richness of Oscar Wilde's way with words and ideas are given full range in this sparkling collection of short stories written between 1887 and 1891. Illustrated by Aubrey Beardsley, with an Afterword by David Stuart Davies.

Importance of Being Earnest & Other Plays by Oscar Wilde Importance of Being Earnest & Other Plays, Hardback (March 2017)

Around the World in Eighty Days (Le tour du monde en quatre-vingt jours) is a classic. The exciting, if now dated, adventure of Fogg and Passepartout will entertain modern readers as much as it did the Victorians.With an Afterword by John Grant

Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde Picture of Dorian Gray, Hardback (March 2017)

On its first publication The Picture of Dorian Gray was regarded as dangerously modern in its depiction of fin-de-siecle decadence. Although sin is punished in the end the book has a flavour of the elegantly perverse.With an Afterword by Peter Harness."

Author Biography - Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde was born in Dublin on 16 October 1854. He studied at Trinity College, Dublin and Magdalen College, Oxford. He then lived in London and married Constance Lloyd in 1884. Wilde was a leader of the Aesthetic Movement. He became famous because of the immense success of his plays such as Lady Windemere's Fan and The Importance of Being Earnest. His only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, was first published in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine in 1890 but was revised in 1891 after moralistic negative reviews. After a public scandal involving Wilde's relationship with Lord Alfred Douglas, he was sentenced to two years' hard labour in Reading Gaol for 'gross indecency'. His poem The Ballad of Reading Gaol was published anonymously in 1898. Wilde never lived in England again and died at the age of forty-six in Paris on 30 November 1900. He is buried in Pere Lachaise cemetery where admirers often leave the lipstick marks of kisses on his tomb.
