Product Description

About the Author

The ever-quotable Oscar Wilde once said, 'Anybody can make history. Only a great man can write it'. From his outsize celebrity in Victorian London to his authorship of fiction, drama and poetry that uniquely captured his era, it's fair to say that Wilde succeeded on both counts.

Format: Hardcover
Basil, who up until now was a mediocre painter after meeting Dorian Gray a young Adonis, was inspired to create a masterpiece of which he puts himself into. Against Basil's wishes, Basil's friend Lord Henry influences Dorian Gray. Dorian looks at his portrait and realizes that while the portrait will stay young forever, he will grow old; so Dorian makes a wish that if only he could stay young forever and the portrait can age.

At first Dorian does not realize his wishes been granted. He falls in love with a beautiful young actor who is every woman that Shakespeare ever wrote about. Once again, due to Lord Henry's influence, he realizes that she's just a common girl.

Starting with absent-minded acts Dorian slowly sinks into debauchery. Moreover, with every new act his picture becomes more grotesque while Dorian stays is young and as innocent looking as the day his picture was painted.
What will become of Dorian?
What will become of Dorian's painting?
What would you do if you were Dorian?

Oscar Wilde paints a picture himself as he describes Dorian Gray's dilemma. In addition, we as readers travel with Dorian as each decision is made. In some places in the story, Oscar Wilde seems to drag on and on with detail; however we find that this detail is necessary to set the next scene.

Oscar Wilde himself led a risky life that lead to a jail sentence; is attitudes can be seen in the dialogues in this book.

The Picture of Dorian Gray Starring: George Sanders, Hurd Hatfield

This looks absolutely gorgeous! It was exactly what I was looking for. I'd seen the other books in this collection such as Dracula or Grimm's fairy tales and fell in love. So, I decided to look to see if there was anything in that collection that I genuinely liked as a book and came across this one. I love Oscar Wilde's style and I'm sure most people looking at this will as well so I won't delve into the book itself. However, I will say it was a nice surprise to find the book also contained many of his plays as I clearly hadn't read the description properly to find that out. The book is stunning, the gold edges perhaps might seem a little tacky to some readers, but for me it was perfect. Great purchase and I'd recommend to anyone who is a fan of Wilde or a lovely looking book.

5 Stars for Oscar of course but the book loses a star for lack of anotation or illustrations. Beautiful designer Binding and Art Nouveau front and end covers, gold trim and leatherette finish. Pride of place on the bookshelf.
