The Picture of Dorian Gray takes us to London at the end of the nineteenth century. A city underestimated by its inhabitants, who see Paris as the most prodigious city.
The book tells us the story of Dorian Gray, a young man whose portrait was painted by the artist Basil Hallward, a man that was amazed with his beauty the first moment he saw him. A close friend of the painter was also astonished with the young Dorian and included him in his social group. That picture painted by Hallward would turn out to be very special, by getting older instead of the young man who was the model, bearing all the adversities that Dorian might have expected.
In this book, which is one of the most well-known works of the peerless Oscar Wilde, we are given the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful writing skills and the genial creativity of this writer, and also a great picture of London society sometimes ironic and seldom sarcastic. Besides, we have Lord Henry, a wonderful character that will surely captivate anyone with his amazing theories and his unique sense of humour.
