September: A Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
The Mansion’s second Victorian Literature Book Club a.k.a. “Literary Parlor” is on Sunday, September 9th. Everyone is welcome to join 19th century bibliophile, Kate Howe, at Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion for cookies and conversation about Victorian novels. At this second meeting we’ll be discussing Oscar Wilde’s A Picture of Dorian Gray. Please join Kate in exploring this Gothic novel on Sunday, September 9th at 1:30 pm.
A Picture of Dorian Gray was first published in the July 1890 issue of Lippincott’s Monthly Magazine. The book offended moral sensibilities of British book reviewers. As a result, much of the original text was cut from Lippincott’s to be published 1891 in book form. Join us for cookies and conversation.
