my answer to that

https://jodybower.com/...is-fantasy-escapism/

Some context: I'm 67, I have three advanced degrees (two master's & a doctorate), I've had a long & successful career as a scientific editor, at one point I owned both a regular home and a vacation home . . . in other words, I've accomplished what is expected of most adults. And I've read fantasy for most of my life. I can tell the difference between fantasy and real life, just like I can tell the difference between a painting and a photograph.

I am a dreamer of words, of written words. I think I am reading; a word stops me. I leave the page. The syllables of the words begin to move around The words take on other meanings as if they had the right to be young.

-- Gaston Bachelard
