What We’re Reading: The Picture of Dorian Gray

Continuing on my quest to read all the classic fiction I’ve missed out on so far in my life, next up is The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.

The Picture of Dorian Gray is Oscar Wilde’s only novel, and was first published in a magazine as a serial story during the year 1890. It was considered by many to be scandalous at the time. The magazine edition was expanded by Wilde as a novel in 1891. This work is an example of Philosophical and Gothic fiction with strong Faustian themes.
