The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde Book Summary

The Picture of Dorian Gray is the only published novel by Oscar Wilde, appearing as the lead story in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine on 20 June 1890, printed as the July 1890 issue of this magazine. The magazine's editors feared the story was indecent as submitted, so they censored roughly 500 words, without Wilde's knowledge, before publication. But even with that, the story was still greeted with outrage by British reviewers, some of whom suggested that Wilde should be prosecuted on moral grounds, leading Wilde to defend the novel aggressively in letters to the British press. Wilde later revised the story for book publication, making substantial alterations, deleting controversial passages, adding new chapters and including an aphoristic Preface which has since become famous in its own right. The amended version was published by Ward, Lock and Company in April 1891. Some scholars believe that Wilde would today have wanted us to read the version he originally submitted to Lippincott's.

I love this!. By far, one of my most enjoyable reads. 10/10

Haunting.. I’m changed for reading this. Not what I expected, but it gripped me through every sentence.

Interesting book!. Very descriptive and colorful writing and a unique story line made this a very interesting read.

Very nice. This book is like American Psycho if it had taken place in the Victorian era.

Wow just wow… Speechless!. When I tell you that this book gave me more goosebumps than watching a scary movie with the lights turned off, it’s true that this book just did that to me. Definitely a 5 out of 5 experience reading this book! Would recommend to everyone to read it at least once.

Not the advertised edition. Free, but ingenuous to use the cover of the Modern Library version on something that is not. What a mess.
