Time may enhance what
seems simply dogged or lacking in fantasy now because we are too close to it, because it resembles too
closely our own everyday fantasies, the fantastic nature of which we don't perceive.
Another effect: time contracts the sphere of
banality. (Banality is, strictly speaking, always a category of the contemporary.) What was banal can, with
the passage of time, become fantastic.
Susan Sontag, 1964
