Summary
Dorian Gray is an innocent young man who has his portrait painted by a close friend. Soon after, he falls under the influence of amoral Lord Henry Wotton. Dorian then jilts his fiancée, which leads to her suicide. This is the start of a life of increasing debauchery. Dorian realizes that the outward signs of this are apparent only in the portrait. Eventually the picture, secreted in his childhood playroom, becomes almost hideous to behold. But Dorian still has one pure love - Gladys, the niece of the original painter
