Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Dorian Gray has become, alongside…The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde’s most enduringly popular work. It is still widely read…Wilde stands nakedly revealed in The Picture of Dorian Gray.” Guardian (London)
“A lush, cautionary tale of a life of vileness and deception or a loving portrait of the aesthetic impulse run rampant? Why not both?” Amazon.com, editorial review
The Picture of Dorian Gray categorically changed Victorian Britain and the landscape of literature.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
