When the irresistible Dorian Gray sees the magnificent portrait his friend Basil Hallward has painted of him, he laments that he will grow old while the picture will always remain young. Dorian strikes a Faustian bargain and is granted eternal youth while the portrait ages and records his sins. As his pursuit of pleasure devolves into a life of sin and corruption, Dorian’s bargain brings devastating consequences. Oscar Wilde’s only novel scandalized Victorian England with its open examination of sex, drugs, and even murder, and its ultimate declaration that hiding from one’s true self is the real sin.
