The character of Dorian was probably named after the young poet John Gray who was introduced to Wilde by Ricketts and Shannon. When the magazine appeared on 20 June 1890, the story immediately created a huge amount of attention and interest, with some finding it repellent. Wilde subsequently added a new preface and six new chapters for publication in book form in 1891.
