Title: The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Genre: Fiction – Gothic
Year of Publication: 1890
Approximate Page Count: 176 pages
Summary: This celebrated novel traces the moral degeneration of a handsome young Londoner from an innocent fop into a cruel and reckless pursuer of pleasure and, ultimately, a murderer. As Dorian Gray sinks into depravity, his body retains perfect youth and vigor while his recently painted portrait reflects the ravages of crime and sensuality. The Picture of Dorian Gray is considered a work of classic gothic fiction with a strong Faustian theme.
