The above is an Excerpt from “The Picture of Dorian Gray” written by  Oscar Wilde.

This Novel caused quite a stir in victorian England it was edited/censored/revised many times before and after being published.

Labelled in the 19th century as morally inappropriate, offensive, effeminate, and contaminating.
