With an Introduction and Notes by John M.L. Drew, University of Buckingham.

Wilde's only novel, first published in 1890, is a brilliantly designed puzzle, intended to tease conventional minds with its exploration of the myriad interrelationships between art, life, and consequence. From its provocative Preface, challenging the reader to believe in 'art for art's sake', to its sensational conclusion, the story self-consciously experiments with the notion of sin as an element of design.

Yet Wilde himself underestimated the consequences of his experiment, and its capacity to outrage the Victorian establishment. Its words returned to haunt him in his court appearances in 1895, and he later recalled the 'note of doom' which runs like 'a purple thread' through its carefully crafted prose.

Recenzii de la cititorii Books Express


Alina-Andreea Badea a dat nota:

O carte interesanta despre cum putem fi usor influentati si cuprinsi de tentatii. Cum ne putem scufunda in ele si ajungem sa ne pierdem pe noi insine. Ideea pactului si legatura cu tabloul accentueaza si mai puternic riscul pe care ni-l asumam atunci cand alegem sa neglijam aspecte importante in favoarea unor placeri de moment.
