The article is a contribution to contemporary debates in aesthetics concerning the relative merits of autonomism and of moralism (or ethicism) in the context of literature. It is argued that the basic moralist insight that moral concerns are relevant to our judgement of literary works is best understood if we focus on the nature of the experience of reading as the autonomists urge us to do.
