Collins Classics - The Picture of Dorian Gray

Oscar Wilde

HarperCollins Publishers, 2016. Paperback. New. HarperCollins is proud to present its range of best-loved, essential classics. ‘The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.' When Basil Hallward paints the portrait of young, handsome Dorian Gray, he falls prey to his dazzling beauty. Afraid that his youth and looks will waste away, Dorian expresses a wish that his portrait, and not he, will age and fade over time. His wish is granted, and over the ensuing years, Dorian indulges in every kind of vice and pleasure, never ageing nor disfiguring. Only his portrait, hidden to the world, bears the marks of his actions, and as his soul grows ever more wasted and corrupted, devastating consequences lie in wait. The Picture of Dorian Gray is an exploration of the purpose of art, the superficial nature of youth and beauty, and the conflict between morality and intemperance. First published in its complete, uncensored form in 1891, it is Oscar Wilde's only novel.SKU: MM-41045247; EAN: 9780008195588

Collins Classics - The Happy Prince and Other Stories

Oscar Wilde

HarperCollins Publishers, 2015. Paperback. New. HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics. ‘Dear Prince, I must leave you, but I will never forget you, and next spring I will bring you back two beautiful jewels in place of those you have given away. The ruby shall be redder than a red rose, and the sapphire shall be as blue as the great sea.' In ‘The Happy Prince' a statue – jewelled and opulent – keeps careful watch over the city and its inhabitants. Enlisting the help of a swallow, his selfless acts bring comfort to those most in need. ‘The Nightingale and the Rose' is a tragic tale of personal sacrifice in the name of love, while in ‘The Selfish Giant' the end of an eternal winter finally brings springtime and happiness. In this collection of enchanting tales from a master storyteller, Oscar Wilde has entranced readers both young and old since publication in the late nineteenth century.SKU: MM-41034779; EAN: 9780008110642
