Norton Critical Editions
The text of this new edition is based on the first edition of 1847, but, collating it with two modern texts, the editor found a great number of variants that led to changes in the text of the novel. New to this fourth edition are an explanatory preface, a chronology and three critical essays.
Includes both the 1890 Lippincott's and the 1891 book versions of 'The Picture of Dorian Gray'. The backgrounds, and reviews and reactions sections allow readers to gauge the novel's sensational reception and to consider heated public debate that the novel's publication engendered. This work also includes a bibliography.
