Abstract: This paper is a critical examination of two antithetical theories on the role of authorial intention in the criticism and interpretation of literature: the New Critics' "intentional fallacy" and E. D. Hirsch's historicist objectivism. A third way is put forward: a regulative objectivism which emerges as a a result of critical debate.
