Digital literature is either praised as the fulfillment of the post-structuralistic literary theory and thus representing an interesting and dynamic new form of art or it is seen as an experiment which is destined to failure because it spoils the reader's pleasure. The paper summarizes some current experimental studies in reader response to print and digital literature. Disorientation and the lack of coherence and closure seem to be the main causes for the reader's unease. The author of the paper argues that the phenomenological description of postmodern aesthetic experience can be applied to the experience of reading digital literature. The aesthetics of digital literature is thus characterized by an experience of a series of 'larval' or undeveloped aesthetic objects.
