"Placing [Walter] Benjamin's quotation from Baudelaire in a fantasy context produces a very different effect from placing the same quotation in an SF context. And both effects are distinct from that which would result from placing it within an example of the literary genre Todorov called 'the Fantastic' -or, indeed, placing it in a piece of 'scientific' literary naturalism, e.g., Zola, or Sinclair Lewis"
