The association between Psychoanalysis and projection of human expressions has been a point of discussion and debate for a long time. Literary art, with a perspective of treating symbols in fictions as expressions of aesthetic human thoughts, becomes a platform of analysis for the same. The link between Katherine Mansfield and this Freudian thought, on various grounds, can be discussed in order to provide a clarified thought of the same association. This study takes the fictional writing "The Voyage" by Mansfield and by using Textual Analysis method attempts to study the symbolism used in the story in order to understand the connection it bears with Psychoanalysis. The symbols are read as expressions of the subconscious, while the narratives of incidents are looked as the conscious expressions. The research study provides a positive alignment towards this thought.
