Dorian Gray Uncensored

New edition of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray was recently released illuminating the many changes that were made to make Dorian Gray cleaner for late 19th century audiences. The book went through some editing at the hands of the editor of the magazine where it was first published and further at the hands of the editors of the publishers that published it in book form. Much of the change was intended to tamp down the sexual innuendo, heterosexual and homosexual, as well as to hide the homosexual elements.
