"The Picture of Dorian Gray" (not the portrait) is the only published novel of Oscar Wilde (1854-1900). It was first published in 1890 and then revised and new chapters added in 1891, it is this second revision what I am uploading. Probably everyone knows the story, but I'm not going to spoil it anyway, it's about a young hedonist man who gets a portrait of himself painted by a friend. It's a philosophical/psycological story of gothic horror (according to Wikipedia).

I created this version from the PG text, which has very few mistakes (there was at least a missing line, though). I added curly quotes, italics, diacritics, etc., and a TOC, of course. I hope the formatting comes out fine in all devices, I only really tested it on my Cybook and I'm still testing the poetry formatting, so I might upload a new version in few days... By the way, this was created with mobiperl from the hand-written HTML file.

Any kind of feedback is welcome (including appropriate tags).

EDIT (v2): Fixed a problem with non breaking spaces.

EDIT (v2.1): Fixed a typo ("peries" -> "perles").

EDIT (v3): Fixed a typo ("share" -> "spare") (Thanks mayoi).
