October’s Classic Reading Selection: The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
My Halloween selection is Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray. Join me in exploring the darker side of beauty and human nature. I’ll be reading online using DailyLit.com’s service. They email the book selection of your choice a segment at a time at intervals you determine. Registration is free and many of the several classic titles at the site, particularly those in the public domain, are available for free. More current publications are also available for a nominal fee. Please, read along with me and join in the discussion of The Picture of Dorian Gray beginning this Friday. I’ll post discussion questions each Wednesday and Friday in the comments section, that way we can keep all of questions and responses for each week together. The first batch of questions will relate to chapters 1-3.

You can also read my weekly commentary about the monthly classic beginning this Friday at A Conservatory of One: Exploring the Writing Craft and Life.
