This chapter states that Neil Gaiman's graphic series The Books of Magic is a refutation of the binary opposition between mimetic and non-mimetic modes of thought. Throughout protagonist Timothy Hunter's journey, reality and fantasy are offered to the audience as two ways of viewing and living in the world. Gaiman does not offer a definitive resolution between the two because he is more interested in getting readers to ask their own questions and arrive at their own conclusions.
