Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray has been adapted into a film, a television movie, a musical, a full-length dance, a comic book, a video game, and even a Lego story, but it first appeared as a novel in 1890. Strangely though, the fiction that Wilde himself originally wanted published has never appeared fully in print—until now. Under pressure, both the novel's first editor and then Wilde himself excised passages deemed immoral by the standards of Victorian England. In this annotated critical edition, editor Nicholas Frankel restores the text to its original unbridled vitality. In essential ways, this edition presents a picture of Oscar Wilde that mirrors the controversial man we have come to know.
