The Alienist Themes

Here you can find links to 17th Street’s special three-part blog series about the primary themes in The Alienist. Part One presents The Alienist as a superb piece of historical fiction before discussing the novel’s themes of corruption and hypocrisy. Building upon this, Part Two and Three explores some of the themes in the novel that relate to the hidden world of the family behind closed doors.
