Overview

"Il ritratto di Dorian Gray" pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1891, fu accolto con scandalo e furiose polemiche.
Dorian, il protagonista giovane e bello, plagiato dal pensiero di Lord Wotton conduce una vita dissoluta e conserverà la propria avvenenza mentre il suo ritratto, eseguito dall'amico Basil, s'imbruttirà divenendo lo specchio dell'anima di Dorian.
Dorian, ossessionato dal potere dell'eterna giovinezza, ne fa strumento malvagio. Quando poi comprenderà chi è realmente diventato, sarà colpito dal rimorso per il male compiuto.

About the Author

The ever-quotable Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) was an Irish playwright, novelist, essayist, and poet who delighted Victorian England with his legendary wit. He found critical and popular success with his scintillating plays, chiefly The Importance of Being Earnest, while his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, scandalized readers. Imprisoned for two years for homosexual behavior, Wilde moved to France after his release, where he died destitute.
