Sartre in 1936, in his most Romantic mode, declared: 'Imagination is not an empirical or superadded power of consciousness, it is the whole of consciousness as it realizes its freedom.' Oddly sunny and unconflicted notion of the imagination -- as if it is not more invested in trapping us than in making us free! (As if we didn't need to piggyback other people's imagination to find our escapist buzz).
