The picture of Dorian Grey

Oscar Wilde

Enthralled by his own exquisite portrait, Dorian Gray exchanges his soul for eternal youth and beauty. Influenced by his friend Lord Henry Wotton, he is drawn into a corrupt double life; indulging his desires in secret while remaining a gentleman inthe eyes of polite society. Only his portrait bears the traces of his decadence. The novel was a succès de scandale and the book was later used as evidence against Wilde at the Old Bailey in 1895. It has lost none of its power to fascinate and disturb.

    Parla sobre un pintor anomenat Basil Hallward. En l'estiu de 1870, el pintor Basil està a punt d'acabar el tretrat del seu atractiu amic Dorian Gray. Però, no obstant això, les coses canvien quan coneix a Lord Henry Wotton, que sota la seva influència, la vida d'en Dorian cambia, i els seus retrats reflecteixen els canvis en la seva personalitat.
    El llibre es interessant, però no m'ha agradat molt.
