The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde


Another classic I have long overlooked. This one shows up on the AP test frequently enough that I decided to check it out - especially because I have had students who said it was their favorite book. What a great story. I loved all of the ideas about beauty and art and recognized many often quoted lines of Wilde's. I am so glad I took the time to read this book.
