For the primary universe counterpart, see The Picture of Dorian Gray.

In the mirror universe, The Picture of Dorian Gray was a novel written by the Terran author and playwright Oscar Wilde during the late 19th century.

Its plot concerned "a dissolute man who kept a painting of himself as a young man hidden away in an attic; the portrait aged while the man stayed young, until the very end, when all of his crimes revisited him, and he instantly crumbled to dust."

By the 23rd century, the novel had been banned by the Terran Empire. While in medical school, Phillip Boyce read it, though only because it was forbidden. At the time, he believed that the novel was "silly," dismissing Wilde as a "centuries-dead fop" from "a more permissive age." (TOS - Mirror Universe short story: "The Greater Good")

All indications suggest that the "mirror" version of The Picture of Dorian Gray is identical to our own.
