THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY

by | Read by Edward Petherbridge

Classics • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1891

This remarkable rendering perfectly captures the spirit and characters of the chilling melodrama that scandalized polite society when first published in 1890. Enthralled with his own physical beauty, Dorian Gray wishes his portrait to grow old while he himself stays young, and Wilde makes it so. Just as the portrait mirrors the ravages of Gray's soul, Petherbridge's narration exudes decadence, hedonism and destruction--every syllable foreshadowing the protagonist's dismal end. The narrator's storytelling and narrative skill are exemplary. R.B.F. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 95]
