  摘要 The present thesis will investigate the interrelationship between the fantastic and the psychoanalytical perspectives via reading Neil Richard Gaiman’s first novel Neverwhere (1996), adapted from the original namesake BBC television serial. Taking cues from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland in which Alice accidentally enters a region of the unknown and the supernatural, Neverwhere, on the other hand, tells of a male protagonist, Richard Mayhew’s fantastic yet uncanny journeying, down the city sewer into the “London Below,” the buried and repressed past by the “London Above,” or the everyday, familiar London by default. Rescuing a girl named Door from the street one night, Richard then becomes invisible, losing his home which turns out “unhomely” in the London Above, compelled to go on the terra incognita of the Below. Observing the invisible cities of the multiple other which used to escape his unitary way of seeing, Richard’s vision of the familiar/homely city gets blurred, defiant, and eventually tuned to scope of the real (as contesting/channeling the symbolic and the imaginary) in the Lacanian sense. Reading the fantastic as subversive to the present cultural order and power invigorated by Rosemary Jackson’s theorization, this thesis hopes to voice the desire of the unseen and unspoken of culture, history, and modernity by facing the im/possibility of making visible the real.
