Description - Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

A narcissistic young man falls under the influence of a hedonist who declares that beauty and sensual fulfillment are all that matters. To ensure the endurance of his youthful good looks, Dorian Gray strikes a Faustian bargain in which his appearance remains unchanged but his portrait reflects every ugly action of his amoral life. This splendid hardcover edition of Oscar Wilde's classic novel features 12 evocative black-and-white illustrations by British artist Henry Keen.
