When the artist Basil Hallward is hired to paint a portrait of the young and handsome Dorian Gray, he becomes obsessed with his subject’s beauty. Dorian is obsessed with his own beauty as well, and sells his soul so that his portrait will age and wither in his place. Free of the confines of age, Dorian indulges himself in depravity and decadence, while the portrait sits upstairs, decaying more and more with each sin….

  • Honest depiction of the human condition

    Enjoyed this exploration of moral decadence by Wilde - the first of his books that i’ve read. An honest depiction of the human condition. A reflection of hedonism of such relevance to our time. Dorian is the weakness in all of us.. Not a nice story but worth reading if nothing else than to make you stop and question your own moral nature...
