Basil Hallward es un artista que queda fuertemente impresionado por la belleza estética de un joven llamado Dorian Gray y comienza a admirarlo. Basil pinta un retrato del joven. Charlando en el jardín de Hallward, Dorian conoce a un amigo de Basil y empieza a cautivarse por la visión del mundo de Lord Henry. Exponiendo un nuevo tipo de hedonismo, Lord Henry indica que «lo único que vale la pena en la vida es la belleza, y la satisfacción de los sentidos». Al darse cuenta de que un día su belleza se desvanecerá, Dorian desea tener siempre la edad de cuando Basil le pintó en el cuadro. Mientras él mantiene para siempre la misma apariencia del cuadro, la figura retratada envejece por él. Su búsqueda del placer lo lleva a una serie de actos de lujuria; pero el retrato sirve como un recordatoriode los efectos de su alma, con cada pecado la figura se va desfigurando y envejeciendo.

Author Bio: Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) was born in Dublin. He won scholarships to both Trinity College, Dublin, and Magdalen College, Oxford. In 1875, he began publishing poetry in literary magazines, and in 1878, he won the coveted Newdigate Prize for English poetry. He had a reputation as a flamboyant wit and man-about-town. After his marriage to Constance Lloyd in 1884, he tried to establish himself as a writer, but with little initial success. However, his three volumes of short fiction, The Happy Prince, Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime, and A House of Pomegranates, together with his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, gradually won him a reputation as a modern writer with an original talent. That reputation was confirmed and enhanced by the phenomenal success of his society comedies: Lady Windermere’s Fan, A Woman of No Importance, An Ideal Husband, and The Importance of Being Earnest, all performed on London’s West End stage between 1892 and 1895. In 1895, he was convicted of engaging in homosexual acts, which were then illegal, and sentenced to two years imprisonment with hard labor. He soon declared bankruptcy, and his property was auctioned off. In 1896, he lost legal custody of his children. When his mother died that same year, his wife Constance visited him at the jail to bring him the news. It was the last time they saw each other. In the years after his release, his health deteriorated. In November 1900, he died in Paris at the age of forty-six.
