The Picture of Dorian Gray is the only published novel written by Oscar Wilde, first appearing as the lead story in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine on June 20, 1890.

Wilde later revised this edition, making several alterations, and adding new chapters; the amended version was published by Ward, Lock, and Company in April 1891.

This book is a reproduction of the 1891 edition. The story is often miscalled The Portrait of Dorian Gray.

The Picture of Dorian Gray is considered one of the last works of classic gothic horror fiction with a strong Faustian theme.

It deals with the artistic movement of the decadents, and homosexuality, both of which caused some controversy when the book was first published.

However, in modern times, the book has been referred to as "one of the modern classics of Western literature."
