Horror hides behind an attractive face in The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde's tale of a notorious Victorian libertine and his life of evil excesses. Though Dorian's hedonistic indulgences leave no blemish on his ageless features, the painted portrait imbued with his soul proves a living catalogue of corruption, revealing in its every new line and lesion the manifold sins he has committed. Desperate to hide the physical evidence of his unregenerate spirit, Dorian will stop at nothing -- not even murder -- to keep his picture's existence a secret. A scandalous story when it was first published in 1890, The Picture of Dorian Gray is acknowledged a landmark of literature today and a tale emblematic of its time.
