Abstract: Alice is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease. This dissertation presents a literary analysis of Still Alice, in order to point at the ethical and therapeutical role of the novel. It analyses the representation of dementia and its impact on the protagonist, those around her, and on the narrative itself.
