Sammanfattning: This essay, “Education in literature, for what reason?” with the subtitle “A qualitative study of teachers reflections on the didactic questions what and why in the education of literature” has as its purpose to research how gymnasium teachers in literature reflects on the didactic questions what and why in relationship to the literature field of education. This is explored using qualitative interviews made with five teachers that is teaching literature in the Swedish gymnasium. The collected data is categorized into five aspects and analyzed with a focus on which aspects and raison d'être the informants use as a base for their reflections around the didactic questions. In the discussion chapter  of the essay the result of the study is put against current literature didactic research and also relevant theories of general didactics. The result shows that the informants conducts a meta reflexive process in the education of literature and that there also exists inner conflicts in the didactic process, which in the discussion is connected to a discrepancy between the measurable goals in the teaching and the raison d'être that is in the essay called the socio cultural aspect. A consequence of this discrepancy that is being lifted in the final discussion is that the pupils understanding of why they are reading literature in school and the teachers understanding of why is not in alignment, which could cause confusion amongst the pupils.
