Dorian Gray, a beautiful young man, sells his soul for eternal youth and beauty after viewing a picture of himself drawn by artist Basil Hallward. Dorian Gray's picture grows old and corrupt while he continues to appear fresh and innocent. After he kills a young woman, "as surely as if I had cut her little throat with a knife," Dorian Gray is surprised to find no difference in his vision or surroundings. "The roses are not less lovely for all that. The birds sing just as happily in my garden.""The Picture of Dorian Gray" is Oscar Wilde's only published novel and is widely regarded as a classic of Western literature.
