Book #19: The Picture of Dorian Gray

The Picture of Dorian Gray

by Oscar Wilde

The only novel written by Irish playwright Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray tells the Faustian story of a man trading his soul for a life of pleasure. Instead of aging himself, a portrait of Gray seems to get older with time. Filled with delusions of eternal life, Gray lives a double life, living among the upper classes while also engaging in hedonistic activities and outright crimes.

For this project, I selected an electronic copy of The Picture of Dorian Gray. At my standard font size, the book is 170 pages in length.
