When a palm-reader reveals that Lord Arthur Savile's destiny is to be a murderer, Lord Arthur sets out to commit the crime so that he might marry without impediment. But was murder truly Lord Arthur's destiny or did it only seem to be so because of the palm-reader's suggestion? Victorian author Oscar Wilde is known both as a playwright and prose author. Among his most famous works are The Picture of Dorian Gray, his only novel, the plays An Ideal Husband and The Importance of Being Earnest, and the short story collections Lord Arthur Savile's Crime and Other Stories and The Happy Prince and Other Stories.
