"It is equally possible for the same reader to adopt different frames for the same story, relishing it on one level while seeing through the claptrap on another. In his youth Aneurin Bevan enjoyed the Magnet and Gem surreptitiously (his father forbade them) and devoured H. Rider Haggard at the Tredegar Workmen"s Institute Library. But during the "Phoney War" he lambasted the government"s stupidly optimistic predictions in precisely the same terms: ""Immediately on the outbreak of war, England was given over to the mental level of the Boys" Own Paper and the Magnet..."" In 1944 Bevan freely admitted that ""William le Queux, John Buchan and Phillips Oppenheim have always been favourites of ours in our off-moments. Part of their charm lies in their juvenile attitude""."
