“Hurt Into Poetry: On Poetry and Greece”By Stephanos Papadopoulos
"What I like most [about steampunk] is the possibility of playing with the naïve credulity of the Victorians, who could believe in the scientific advance as much as in the magical. That’s why there was such a prevalence of spiritualism and secret societies. It was a world of contrasts, and, moreover, a time of adventure, as the world was still unknown, not fully explored, and man’s fantasies could run free. Victorians could believe that there was a civilization living at the center of the earth or that the moon was inhabited, and science could not yet prove to them that they were wrong."
