The Picture of Dorian Gray (Roads Classics)

Oscar Wilde

PAPERBACK

November 20, 2014

Wilde's only novel, first published in 1890, posits the idea that the only thing worth pursuing in life is a beauty. The novel's protagonist, entranced by the perfection of his portrait and realizing that his beauty will one day fade, makes a Faustian bargain whereby the figure on the canvas ages in his place. Gray embarks upon a hedonistic spree of debauchery and cruelty, which Mark's only the portrait's face, while his exquisite beauty remains intact.

About the Cover: As though he were the result of a formula for male perfection, this geometric portrait of Gray is illuminated by the feathers of a peacock, a symbol of immortality and vanity.
