A prospective reader asks:
Is New Escapologist a Modernist publication?
Ah! In as much as Modernism is a reaction against the Victorian penchant for clutter and decoration and empire, I suppose we are.
But we kept some of the 19th-Century ideas about manners, action, and comfort. It’s in our DNA.
We’re a philosophical and aesthetic mash-up. Does this make us postmodern? Post-postmodern? I don’t know.
Simon Munnery: “Don’t worry about being modern. It’s the one thing you can’t avoid.”
