Metaphorical language and Alzheimer's disease in Lisa Genova's novel Still Alice : m. a. thesis
Nastja Prajnč Kacijan, 2022, magistrsko delo

Opis: The thesis analyses metaphorical language in Lisa Genova’s novel Still Alice. It aims to explain in what ways metaphorical language contributes to the portrayal of Alzheimer’s disease, especially from the point of view of the protagonist, Alice. Alice is 50 years old and at the prime of her career as a professor and researcher when she is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. The novel focuses on her experience of the progressing disease and the way it influences her relationships with her husband and three children. Since scientific terminology is frequently used in the novel, one part of the thesis explains medical terms closely connected to dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Another section describes various common portrayals of the two concepts in literature and media, because these reveal the general and stereotypical perception of Alzheimer’s disease and its stigmatized patients. These portrayals are connected to themes of water imagery, apocalyptic imagery or imagery of war or crime. The thesis attempts to discover whether such portrayals are also used within the metaphorical language of the novel, specifically in those excerpts that include either Alzheimer’s disease explicitly or other abstract and physical entities that are connected to the disease.
