Oscar Wilde's only novel, is a brilliantly designed puzzle, intended to tease conventional minds with its explanation of the myriad inter-relationships between art, life and consequence. From its provocative preface, challenging the reader to believe in 'art for art's sake' to its sensational conclusion, the story experiments with the notion of sin as an element of design. The book caused outrage with the Victorian establishment the words returned to haunt him in his court appearances in 1895.
