    The Picture of Dorian Gray

  1. Author: Wilde, Oscar
    Title: The Picture of Dorian Gray
    Date: 1891
    Genre: fiction
    Note Relating to Cather: In her preface to the 1937 Autograph Edition of Song of the Lark, Cather writes that "the life of nearly every artist who succeeds in the true sense (succeeds in delivering himself completely to his art) is more or less like Wilde's story," which she inaccurately calls "The Portrait of Dorian Grey." In an 1895 Journal article Cather writes: "We will have no more such plays as Lady Windermere's Fan, no more such stories as The Picture of Dorian Gray. We can do without them."
