A moral defect in a work of art is always also an artistic defect.
What does this mean? Therefore, any defects can easily give away clues. I'm confused with this quote.
It means this: Take a novel, which includes a moral theme (cannabilism, incest, rape, beheading, you name it) in which the theme is protrayed. This statement says the novel is also contains an artistic defect. It says further, it is always an artistic defect.
i'm still kinda confsed ..well,let me put it this way; if a moral defect exists in a an artistic work then there should be an artistic defect as well becase the work of art/artistic work should be perfect /withot any defects..did i get it right????
