Overview

El retrato de Dorian Gray stands out not only because it is the only novel by Oscar Wilde but because it is his most lasting work. The misadventures of Dorian Gray, a paradigmatic and witty dandy obsessed with the ephemeral and a panic at the thought of aging, gives us great and absorbent twists and turns that had never been given to a novel before.  El retrato de Dorian Gray (1890) destaca no sólo por ser la única novel de Oscar Wilde, sino también por ser su trabajo más perdurable. Las desventuras de Dorian Gray, ese dandi paradigmático y ocurrente obsesionado con lo efímero, y su pánico a envejecer nos deparan la más genial y absorbente de las vueltas de tuerca que jamás se le hayan dado a la novela fáustica. «La belleza es, de las formas del genio, la más elevada, porque no tiene necesidad de ser explicada, es uno de los hechos absolutos del mundo.»
