* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Well, she's not ''actually'' single, and Gilbert's not exactly the perfect man either (i.e. impulsive temper, Jerkass attitude towards some people, etc.), but it ''is'' ultimately Gilbert's patience, love for her son, and gentleness that wins Helen's heart.

* [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation/{{Literature}} Alternative Character Interpretation]]: The modern critical interpretation of Gilbert as a second Arthur Huntingdon qualifies as this. Also, John Sutherland speculates that Helen is not Frederick's sister, but his illegitimate half-sister, based on strange inconsistencies in the text (such as the fact that no one in the neighbourhood seems to remember that the squire has a sister called Helen). Helen can be interpreted as a rare example of a female ByronicHero. Although she is more moral than many examples of the trope, she is an outcast from society because of her mysterious DarkAndTroubledPast, her controversial ideals, and her [[IceQueen icy personality]]. In that era, it was unconventional for a woman to support herself as an artist, and [[spoiler: leaving her abusive husband and taking their child with her]] could even have been considered illegal.

* ValuesDissonance: A fair amount of the treatment of women's sexuality. Also, children as young as little Arthur (five years old or younger) are allowed to drink watered wine or gin and water.

[[note]]This last was common practice for centuries, since the water in most of England was unsafe to drink.[[/note]]

* EvilIsSexy: Arthur Huntingdon, of course, is a gorgeous man. He turns out to have no redeeming features. And subverting this, towards the end, Helen mentions that he has lost all of his good looks due to his hedonism.
