Some may argue that "House of Mist" is an “anti-feminist” novel due to the female narrator’s obsession with fairy-tales and a man who doesn’t love her, as it seems to make her conform to the patriarchal narrative. It’s unfair to say that this is all Helga’s character amounts to. However, even if it was all Helga’s character amounted to, "House of Mist" is subtlety feminist in the way in which it exposes the negative effect patriarchal values have on women and contrasts these patriarchal values with repressed zones of femininity. A protagonist doesn’t necessarily have to completely conform to the trope of a ‘strong female character’ in order for a text to convey a feminist message; this text conveys a feminist message by showing us the damage patriarchal society has on Helga’s psyche.
