The Picture of Dorian Gray Reviews


"Very helpful editor's introduction and footnote. This was, for most students, the first exposure to a scholarly edition. It went over very well."--Thomas E. Blair, Chabot College
"Isobel Murray's gifted editing makes this easily the finest edition available."--Dr. A.G. Hunter, Curry College
"I've been using the Penguin Modern Classics version which lacks an introduction, chronology, and notes. Yours is more complete."--Robert O'Connor, North Dakota State University
"Best quality at the lowest cost, excellent for my introduction to Literature course--students of all ages and backgrounds react strongly and positively to this unique book."--Paul Pellikka, The Univ. of Texas
