Wilde, aesthetics, amorality and all that

This was such an interesting post i had to reread it, and I'm still not sure I'm entirely clear on your perspective. However, it did make me think of books that weren't great to read possibly because their intent was to stake out a moral space at the expense of story or writing, such as:
Moral - Horatio Alger; immoral - Sade; amoral - Ayn Rand.

Mr Not, yes, I'm garbling my sense a bit (first draft blues...) but I guess I meant 'narrative intent' in the above - although, of course, being Wilde, you could read it the other way too ;-)
And Sade, yes, an awesome bore, but an interesting one too.
