The Complete Works of Oscar Wilde - Oscar Wilde, Vyvyan Holland

"in every first novel the hero is the author as Christ or Faust." Oscar Wilde

 

And Dorian is definitely Faust. Pacts with the Devil never end well for the protagonist.

 

(I'd actually forgotten just how high the body count is for such a short novel. Lady Bracknell would be appalled.)
