* 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.

* HoYay: Observe...
-->'''Gilbert:''' I was a very constant and attentive visitor to [Frederick Lawrence] throughout the whole period of his illness and convalescence; not only from the interest I took in his recovery, and my desire to cheer him up and make the utmost possible amends for my former 'brutality,' but from my growing attachment to himself, and the increasing pleasure I found in his society - partly from his increased cordiality to me, but chiefly on account of his close connection, both in blood and in affection, with my adored Helen. I loved him for it better than I liked to express: and I took a secret delight in pressing those slender white fingers, so marvellously like her own, considering he was not a woman, and in watching the passing changes in his fair, pale features, and observing the intonations of his voice, detecting resemblances which I wondered had never struck me before.

* [[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.
